Silkweed Plants are a harvestable plant that yields Silk Threads, a Tier IV Resource used mainly in Weaving, Outfitting, and Furnishing. You can gather Silkweed Plants when you reach harvesting skill level 100.

Where to find Silkweed in New World

Silkweed is found in many territories, but you’ll find it mostly in these two regions:

  1. Brightwood
  2. Mourningdale

Brightwood Silk farm

Brightwood is one of the first zones where you will notice Silkweed. There’s a good chance you’re nowhere near a high enough harvesting level to pick it when you first see it, but Brightwood remains one of the best zones to farm silk.

The densest Silk area in Brightwood is around The Eldritch, just north of the Brightrest Cemetary, around Chancellor’s Torment, and northeast of Eldritchton. The easiest place to start for this Silk farm is in Brightwatch. Make your way southeast out of town and follow the road. Refer to the map below for the best spots.

Mourningdale Silk farm

Hands down, the best territory for farming Silk is Mourningdale. Technically, this is a level 45-50 zone, but you can make your way through here around level 40 if you want to take advantage of the various plantlife to level your harvesting. 

Pull up your Mourningdale map, zoom in so you can see the region names, and look for the Flooded Plains. You can find a ton of Silkweed plants both north and south of the Marsic point of interest. It is viable to start at Mourningdale Town or even the northern Restless Shore Spirit Shrine (Shrine of Sisyphos).
