Silk is a clothing material that is fairly rare, and provides for some elegant clothing articles. Creating clothing using silk is a labour intensive process, although the finished goods are worth the time.
The raw good used to create the final product of the silk cloth are silk cocoons. They can be gathered at a rate of 75 grams a day. There is no tool that can increase the rate of gathering.
Spinning the Yarn
You need a spindle to spin silk cocoons into silk yarn.
