Invasive SpeciesAlthough Silkvine has been stripped of all of its offensive measures, it is still a highly problematic plant in its region. The Shejlt manipulated it to grow quickly—at a rate of up to an inch a day. It takes low nutrition despite this explosive growth, and has so interwoven the Alden region that smooth stone walls encircle most cities and House Native Rajhska are tasked to go harvest, burn, or destroy it. In some regions the Silkvine has grown into the Table Coral and runs for miles beneath the earth—able to survive without even sunlight.
In FabricSilkvine is used for high-strength fabrics such as ropes and military clothing. Processed, it was used to form early plastics, and even further refined is the basis of Weave, a critical material in Raiments. It has high tensile strength, can be produced even on space stations, and has mild coloric value in a pinch.
In TraditionsSilkvine is the favored materlai for many traditions. It is used to make laurels, woven baskets, ceremonial clothing, ropes, decorations, and other woven goods. While it is crunchy and supple while young, it darkens and becomes sinewy with time, though never loses its supple nature until well after maturation of death.
