You are purchasing  one pure white bombyx silk cap, the weight is approximately 10-12 grams for each cap. Many cocoons make up a silk cap.

You can spin with the silk caps by taking the cap and peeling off a layer which is one cocoon. Then take the layer and punch a hole in the middle and start streching it out into a large circle. Eventually it will be streched enough to where you may pull it apart so now you have a length of silk. Keep streching the silk out till it is fine and the roving is ready to spin. At this point you may also just put some light finger twist into the "roving" and directly knit with it. It makes a wonderful scarf this way.
