  • silkworm pulling silk

    Insight into how silkworms ‘pull’ fibre from their bodies could revolutionise how greener materials are manufactured

    Insight into how silkworms ‘pull’ fibre from their bodies could revolutionise how greener materials are manufactured.

    Researchers from the University of Sheffield’s Department of Material Science have shown that animals spin silk by pulling, rather than pushing, it out of their bodies. They suggest that if this process can be copied in an industrial setting, it could improve how synthetic materials are processed and offer more environmentally-friendly alternatives to the production of synthetic materials like nylon and polyester.
