Youtube: You like spiders now. Here you go!
This is reaaaaaaly detailed!
This is crazy. We get everything from mother earth.
Came here from a wild kratts episode lol
Was the sandmans Daughter Hope?
Farming Spider Silk To make Gray genes. Shiney and Golden!
I really want to know how it feels
“One of the problems is that spiders are impossible to domesticate.” I don’t know why I thought of a spider on a leash playing fetch or something, it’s too funny.
Yeah, let's just torture hundreds of spiders for a pointless rug. Fucking humans, anything fucked up you can imagine, we've done it. There are currently people who hold orangutans hostage as 'prostitutes' and rape them. Google it. I fucking hate our species.
Demons exploiting the spider rot in hell humans
Why is the name of the institvte a typo on the first frame…
Do Brazilian wandering spiders produce webs
my work has made kevlar and we regularly use kevlar tracers, i hate it, it absolutely demolished a ridiculous amount of cutters and scissors, so just have to constantly sharpen stuff when your weaving it, its crazy annoying cant even imagine how working with synthetic spider silk would be if they ever get it right
Wow this is amazing! The dedication of constructing these types of pieces and love that goes/went into them from past eras (and in this example) will forever inspire me. As a collector of ribbonworks, fabrics, linens and other antique/vintage objects this is what I try to explain to people as to why I like the things I collect and look for.
Can it stop a bullet?
I have the spider silk bed curtains. They match my rug pretty well. I have a lot of nice stuff.
Golden orb spiders are found everywhere in the tropics, it's a type of spider not a species.
she said "enrolled" instead of exploited
Spiders aren't endless supplies of web material. I am wary of what damage this would do to these insects in terms of being so depleted they may not be able to maintain their own webs and thus able to feed themselves. It is gorgeous, but we have other sources of gorgeous fabric materials.
I wonder how soft it feels
Why they handle that tapestry so fragile if it's so indestructible?
I wish they can ve at least bred to make silver threads.
I want a shirt made of that silk.
Sure it would be easier to use crispr and put the gene for spider silk into goats or humans for that matter, but why hasn't anyone thought about classically breeding these spiders to make it easier to produce silk by creating tamer spiders? If Russians can take a wild animal and over 60 years make it a tame household pet, seems we should be at least as capable.
Thank you for showing Africa's storyIt pains me to wonder when Africa will own its dignity & its gifts !1 thing I learnt : I thought Chinese were the first and the only to know silk weaving, but apparently Malagasy also knew 🙆🏾♂️
So amazing, so beautiful. I find it fascinating that one day someone decided spider silk would make nice material, then came up with a plan to collect, spin, and weave spider silk into material. It really is amazing when you truly think about it. Thanks for such an interesting video
Isn't the silk still "sticky"? Or does the stickiness disappear as the silk is processed?
I wonder what spider silk garments do for your stats.
It's the Spiderman's Towel
why publish such vile childish comments about something truly wonderful, it is so sad in a world full of wonder that all you lot can do is bitch at each other, a sad generation is growing up into limited vocabulary and paranoia, an extraordinarily limited view of the world (yes there is life outside a gun ridden culture) and an extremely dim future. Very, very sad,with a bit of luck you might grow up into some form of civilised being but I doubt it.
it's very very strong thread
isn't this supposed to be strong enough to stop a bullet?
I bet it cost millions.
Very pretty… now kill all those fucking spiders.
