Hey guys, I have question.

Does anyone know if it is possible to harvest silk from other types of worms?

I'm assuming no, because the chinks were total autists about keeping silkworms to themselves, but did anyone try?

no because you need to be asian

Silk comes from the fabric store, it's got nothing to do with worms.

Use spiders instead. They are easier to keep and feed and harvest from. Find the biggest spider you can in your area and start harvesting it. If you want it to have stronger silk, feed it graphene-laced water. You'll have to make the graphene yourself, but it really isn't too difficult.

Than I assume that the anwser is no...

it is but natural types don't produce nearly as much silk as the Chinese silkworms will

the spool thing drawing out the spider web is somewhat interesting, but what I really wanna see is how the FUCK did they manage to pin all of a spider's legs down, upside down, without harming it???

on second thought,,,, with spiders it might even be easier to harvest silk...

because if you hold on on your finger and then teas it so it jumps off, they trail a single line of web as they try to escape without falling. It doesn't take any equipment and it is quick and easy to do.

step 1: harvest 500lbs spider silk
step 2: ???
step 3: profit!

Either drugged it or got it really cold.

Cold is probably the best option to place them in some sort of harness that exposes the spinnerets.

There's also an instructable that has someone simply collecting old spiderwebs and making thread out of it.

If I did this, I'd be using those big garden spiders. They are pretty easy to handle and feed. They also make some really thick and strong threads.

On average, 23,000 [Madagascar golden spiders, the best in the world at this] yield roughly 1 ounce of silk [per day], making the process intensely time-consuming.

They had most of a town feeding and harvesting spiders for a year to get enough silk for a dress.

Yeah, but I don't have those locally.
