‘’Spider and Silk Supply’ is a new spinoff company of SSRL members. It is the only one in existence that can supply Research Institutions and Industries highest quality as spun spider silk, as well live spiders, on requests for all kinds of research and development.

Another application of spider silk we (in collaboration with Trish Flanagan and Pat Spicer) are exploring is its incorporation into wearables to create new adaptable features in different kinds of clothing and equipment.
Here Trish is isolating the silk collected from Trichonephila to weave them into yarns for hybridization with other fibres.
