Spider silk cloth!!  I have always wondered if it could be done for apparel.  On display now at the V&A until June 5, 2012.

This display will showcase the world’s largest pieces of cloth made from spider silk. It will include a brocaded shawl made from the silk of more than one million female golden orb-weaver spiders collected in the highlands of Madagascar, as well as a cape on public display for the first time.
