Have not watched that episode yet. — “A spectacular and extremely rare textile, woven from golden-colored silk thread produced by more than one million spiders in Madagascar.” More here: http://funandfancyknittingstitches.blogspot.com/2011/01/spider-silk-tapestry.html Great photos of the cape here: http://news.bbc.co.uk/today/hi/today/newsid_9674000/9674949.stm
