唐宋时期 ,经济重心南移。但宋代华北平原桑蚕丝织业仍极兴盛。桑蚕丝织业遍布所有的府州军 ,贡绢州的比例也高于其他地区 ;丝织品的质量精细厚重、数量丰富 ,仍为宋政府丝织品的主要供应地 ,且商品率高。这说明 ,华北平原仍是全国桑蚕丝织业生产的重心 ,桑蚕丝织业重心的南移与经济重心的南移并不同步Although the ecomomic centre had moved to the south during the Tang and the Song Dynasties, silk industry was still prosperous in the North China Plain in the Song Dynasty. It could be found in almost all the prefectures and the amount of silk paid to the central government as tribute was bigger in this region. The silk produced there was of best quality. The region had been one of the main suppliers of silk as most of its production was sold in the market. It showed that the shift of economic centre had not brought about the shift of silk industry simultaneously.
