How To Make Silk In Terraria

In Terraria, silk is the raw material with which you can make many things like weapons, clothes, furniture, spawn hordes of enemies with silk, etc. It is also used in recipes like banners, Molotov cocktails, beds, etc.

However, you will need cobwebs and a ready-to-use loom to make it in the game.

 Materials required: 

  • Sawmill
  • Loom
  • Seven cobwebs

Every silk requires seven pieces of cobwebs. The cobwebs are easy to find, especially on the spelunking adventure. But, the more difficult thing is to have a loom crafting station for making silk. And a loom crafting station is made of 12 wood. 

Where To Get The Silk For A Bed

Now you might have a question like how to make silk in Terraria or how to get silk in Terraria.

There are two ways of getting silk in Terraria. You can either craft it with a loom crafting station with cobwebs or sawmill (you can find these things in the underground cabins). 

First, you need to collect cobwebs. Try to collect as much as you can to spin silk whenever you like. Cobwebs are easily available in underground places like jungles and valleys. You can use any weapon to retrieve cobwebs. 

Then you will need a sawmill to craft the loom. Sawmill requires ten wood, two lead bars, and chains for crafting. Once you have assembled ass this, you will be able to make your sawmill. 

Now, place your sawmill and stand next to it to craft your loom. The loom requires 12 wood. Once you are done, stand next to your loom to unlock the Terraria silk recipe.  Once the recipe is unlocked, you can craft your silk.

Another way to get silk is from the shop. The raw cobweb does not have any value, but one quantity of silk sells for two gold. So you can both buy it and sell it.

The player should build the place. You have to open your inventory and then click on the bed. After that, it will be placed in the correct place.
