How is silk turned into fabric?
Silk makes a very smooth fabric, and is used to make fabric because of this. The reason for the smoothness is partly because of the tightness of the weave, and the fact that silk, or rather, the silk thread, is smooth itself when put into comparison with wool, which has a thread covered in miniature hooks. Silk has no such hooks.

Asked in Inventions
How does the invention of silk work?
Silk is not do much an invention as a discovery. ?The discovery that the cocoon of the silkworm moth lava could be boiled and unravelled as one continuous thread. This thread is then twinned with others to make a silk yarn which is woven into fabric. The secret of silk was discovered by the ancient Chinese who learned how to domesticate and farm the silk worm moths, feeding them on a type of mulberry leaf.
