Resumen

Making artificial fibers inspired in spider silks is considered as one of the milestones in the field of biomimetics. The interest is usually justified by the outstanding tensile properties of natural fibers, but it is usually overlooked that spider silk is endowed with a number of related properties – supercontraction, recovery and the existence of a ground state – that impart the material with additional desirable features, such as the possibility of tuning its mechanical behaviour. In this work we present a review on the experimental analysis and significance of these properties, stressing the contributions of our research group to the field. It is also demonstrated how the knowledge gained in the basic study of the natural material has been essential for the improvement of the properties exhibited by artificially processed bio-inspired silk fibers
