They say that a Tarantula's nesting is 6X stronger than steel. Anyone ever held this stuff in their hands? Can anyone get me some? I want to try it as a thread.

Ahh, spider silk as IT. Might be a little hard to harvest for this project, but there apparently is a way.

I suspect it'll be a bit pricey.
