Default Re: Would a 9 lb sapient spider producing 1/10 lb of silk a day suspend your disbelie

But I can't for the life of me find out how much silk a spider produces let alone as a function of body mass.
So as a number pulled out of my spinnerets, does 1/10 lb for maximum output seem reasonable? Or would you say only 1/100 lb per day, etc.?
May I stop to congratulate you on the best thread title I've seen in weeks?
