My husband sends me this link to a textile spun and woven from spider silk. Of course there isn’t NEARLY enough information in it for me. Things I want to know:
- Does the silk extraction machine spin the silk as it extracts it or is it just bundled?
- What weaving techniques did they use to create the gorgeous patterning on the textile?
- Is it soft?
- Is it as strong after being woven as they say spider silk is?
- Can they make embroidery thread this way? Could I afford it? LOL
And I’m sure I could come up with more.
Mostly, though, I want to see the fabric in person! Pretty pretty!
