Spidersilk Shawl

I've been meaning to blog about this spidersilk shawl for ages, found here. it looks amazing.

There is talk on lots of blogs about spidersilk socks from Japan but I have yet to see any - apparently it's the ideal fibre to use for bullet proof vests as it is stronger than steel, weight for weight.
If it becomes possible to mass produce spidersilk, as seems to be the goal, then I guess it could be the high-tech fabric of the future.
