In the real world... searching...

70 people caught 1 million golden orb spiders over 4 years and 12 people extracted 80 feet of silk per spider to create one 11 by 4 foot rug.
So it's technically doable at any tech level, but it would be stupidly expensive without ultra tech or supernatural means.
