Spider silk fabric

Read an interesting news release from Kraig Biocraft Laboratories that they have developed spider silk based fibers, called Monster Silk and Warwick Mills have developed an actual fabric from it.

So far it has been samples of a jersey knit, but other fabrics are planned. Being able to create the fiber is fascinating, but it means considerably more that they can actually be woven into a fabric using existing machinery.

More can be seen here.
