The research conducted by the University of Science and Technology of China was published in the international academic journal Plos One. Scientists studied silk fibroin obtained through soil samples collected from three tombs in a Neolithic site at Jiahu within the Henan province of the country.
More than 8,500 years old bone needles and rough weaving tools were also found at the site, confirming that the residents of Jiahu had sewing and weaving skills required for making textiles. (KD)
