Silkworms spins nets of silk for laying their eggs and making their strong silk cocoons. Silkworm cocoons are used to make the luxurious silk clothing we wear.

Woolly bear moth caterpillars weave a unique cocoon by pulling out their own body hairs and weaving them into the cocoon.

Spiders send out a dragline to move quickly from one place to another and build majestic webs.
