When attempting to restore a silk textile antiquity, it is necessary to make a thread suitable for the characteristics of the silk textile. Examined a silk reeling method by various manual works through the ancient literature which described a silk reeling method by the manual work and performed silk reeling of those raw silk. Furthermore, in order to investigate the effect of the reeling method of these ancient literatures on the raw silk, a comparative test was conducted on the tension, lustre and color difference for the current silkworm race. As a result, it was found that the elasticity was affected by the pupa killing method and silkworm race, the tenacity was affected by the reeling tools and silkworm race, and the Young's modulus was influenced by the reeling tools. It was also found that the luster was affected by the reeling tool and the silkworm race, and the color difference was affected by the silkworm race, the reeling tools, cocoon-preserving methods and pupa killing methods.
