Bolt Threads is Replicating Silk Fibers from Spiders and Insects

First thing we were thinking of when reading about the replication of spider silk was Spiderman. Perhaps they will be able to replicate his skills as well…

Back to reality. Bolt Threads seems to be doing some great stuff. They are not the first company replicating spider silk but appearantly they are the first company to produce it on a large scale against prices that are interesting for the fashion industry. Meaning we might see apparel made of replicated spider silk in the near future in stores. Who knows, perhaps a big sports company such as Nike will take over Bolt Threads to use the silk production exclusively for their gear. According to what we know this fabric is more flexibale, stronger, softer, more adaptable, better water resistant than any other fabric. Time will tell, for now you can learn more on Bolt Threads.
