what this one of a kind cloth is made of!

This rare cloth, on display at the American Museum of Natural History in New Your City,  is made from the silk of more than a million wild spiders.

According to Wired Science, “To produce this unique golden cloth, 70 people spent four years collecting golden orb spiders from telephone poles in Madagascar, while another dozen workers carefully extracted about 80 feet of silk filament from each of the arachnids. The resulting 11-foot by 4-foot textile is the only large piece of cloth made from natural spider silk existing in the world today.” Want to know more?   Click here.
