A spider commonly found in garden centers in Britain is giving fresh insights into how to spin incredibly long and strong fibers just a few nanometers thick. The majority of spiders spin silk threads several micrometers thick but unusually the ‘garden centre spider’ or ‘feather-legged lace weaver’ can spin nano-scale filaments.
