Silk's proteins also give it unmatched strength; in fact, it is finer and more durable than Kevlar. It has been used historically as a thin layer of "soft armour," and it was even used to create the first-ever bulletproof vest. Silk is still utilized today for a variety of purposes, including sutures and other medical devices. Although it is still being tested in the lab, the applications seem almost endless.
