  • Gruel and Water are the only items which can be used to feed a Silkworm that doesn't change its color.
  • Giving a Silkworm Green Beer or Rotten Egg can also make it sick.
  • At approximately 15 days of age, a Silkworm will reach an elderly stage and begin having wrinkles.
  • One can only feed a Silkworm in an area they have access to.
  • Using a Spike Juice or an Experience Potion on a Silkworm causes it to be supercharged, which ensures that the next harvest yields 10 Silk Threads.
  • A Silkworm Toy can be used on a Silkworm, making it dance for a short while. The toy has a slight chance of breaking when used.
  • Giving an inappropriate name to a Silkworm will cause it to be deleted.
