Silk on ground

Silk is a resource mainly obtained from Spiders. It can be used to make many useful items like the Sanity-restoring Top Hat, the Boomerang, the Winter Hat for moderate warmth, the Fishing Rod and Bird Traps, among other things.

GatheringEdit

Silk is typically gathered by killing any type of Spider. Its drop rate is approximately 25%. Silk is also dropped in bulk when a Spider Den is destroyed by any means except burning, in which case all its drops turn to Ashes. A large den yields 6 pieces of Silk, a medium den yields 4 pieces, and a small den 2. Spider Queens drop 4 Silk (and a Spiderhat) when killed.

In the Reign of Giants DLC, Silk can be harvested from Tumbleweed. Also, Webber can harvest silk by shaving his beard.

In the Hamlet DLC, Silk drops both from killed Spider Monkeys (at a 25% rate) and from chopped-down Cocooned Trees: 1 piece for a small tree, and 2 for a medium or large tree. Silk can also be bought from 'The Sty' Oddities Emporium for 5 Oincs .

FarmingEdit

Pig Silk Farm

Silk farming using Pigs.

Lone Spiders can be dangerous, but they can be easily dispatched with any Weapon. Each hit briefly stuns them, so Spiders cannot strike attackers back between consecutive hits. For dealing with clutters of Spiders, the proper fighting equipment (Log Suit and Spear in the early game) can give the player an easier time.

Traps can also ease Silk farming from Spiders. Spiders and Spider Warriors make no attempts to avoid Traps, so they can be lead directly into them. Spiders are killed instantly when the Trap gets picked up, leaving their loot behind.

It is a good strategy to bring a Spider Den closer to home by destroying a large Spider Den and planting its Spider Egg near the player's base. This would allow the player to have a steady stream of Spiders. If a den is planted near a large Pig Village, the Pigs will kill the Spiders, leave their Silk on the ground, and ignore the den.

Unless the player wants a Spiderhat, any Spider Den should be quickly destroyed if it grows too large. Each large den has a chance of growing into a Spider Queen after 12.5 days. As large dens drop Spider Eggs at any time, the Queen is a danger one shouldn't have to deal with.
