Just when I thought Cashmere was expensive…

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!
