Given the extreme heat of the Tholians' natural environment, it may be speculated that Tholian silk is a highly resilient fabric, which could account for it being so valued. It is unknown if the silk is produced by the Tholians themselves; if they do naturally spin webs it may help to explain the design of their spacecraft.

It may be speculated, but we don't. We also don't state what is unknown.--31dot 21:34, November 5, 2009 (UTC)
