I would not make silk TL0. It's made from the chrysalises of vast numbers of silkworms, which are fed on mulberry leaves and then dumped into boiling water to extract the fibers. That's an agricultural operation, and one aimed at producing a product for a market, and it really needs metal kettles, not to mention enough division of labor to support a specialized craft. That all sounds like at least TL1.
