Abstract

Greater than 400 million years of natural selection acting throughout the arthropod has resulted in highly specialized and potentially efficient processes to create a protein-based fiber with adequate properties that are a source of inspiration for all. Silk spinning has been observed in various organism including spiders and insects. It exhibits a notable biological source of inspiration for advanced polymer fabrications. Silk spinning has offers a potential significance in polymer and synthetics manufacturing. With the passage of times advancement achieves in various steps of process in sericulture areas and produced good quality of silk.
