    Silk worms are profitable if you know what you are making. you could look for someone who needs supply as different colour bolts have different prices and needs. the average bolt prices at 8 wls and a silk worm produces nearly 1 silk bolt during its lifetime on average. which is good profit. here are some tips from when I had silk worm farms.

    tips:
    on their first 2 days where they dont produce silk , make sure to stuff them full with the food item that yields the colour you want. this will make sure that most of them will produce the desired colour of silk by the time they start producing. some will still produce grey silk for the first 2 days.

    dont let your worms go hungry or thirsty and dont overfeed or bloat them after the first 2 days, this helps ensure they don't get sick as antidotes can be a major cost concern.

    if you have a trusted friend, let them have access in case you are unable to log on to collect/feed as missing a harvest cycle will mess with your profits

    last but not the least , place the silk worms at a time you are sure you will be online in as they will start producing exactly 48 hours after placing

    Someone's silkworms died during rollback, they were fully compensated I believe.
