4. Degumming: Thrown silk yarns still contain some sericin that must be removed in another soap bath to bring out the natural luster and the soft feel of the silk. As much as 25% of the weight is lost by the degumming process. When gum has been removed, the silk fiber or fabric is a creamy white color, beautifully lustrous and luxuriantly soft. It takes place after throwing for preparing yarn for dyeing. A small amount of sericin is sometimes left in the yarn or in the fabric to give the finished product added strength or a dull finish.
