Haelssysn Weave is a cloth-making process that uses a rare and difficult to get spider silk. The spider it comes from is a deadly abyssal spider called a Ilmanómë. Home to the Demon Web Pits, they are extremely tough arachnids, firing web strands that are nearly indestructible. The spider's own venom is used to dissolve it. The drow of Phaerssysn were the first people to make use of Ilmanómë's silk. The art of weaving this spider silk with cloth is called Haelssysn Weave; it is named after the drow house that invented the process.
