Caption

Silk coccon and biomimetic silk thread, held side- by-side. The biomimetic silk thread has been produced by a company in Oxford, UK, called Spinox, which is hoping to devise a spinning process, based on the model used by spiders and insects, to create high performance fibres from natural or artificial proteins. Natural spinning processses are energy efficient, so by mimicking nature (biomimetics), future materials could be based on sustainable, non-polluting processes.
