The fibers of the knitting fungus spread throughout the body, encompassing everything beneath the skin in its weave. As a result, the bodies tissues hold themselves together more stubbornly, better resisting impacts, shocks, and the limiting damage to the wound itself. The spores are engineered not to damage organs with their growth, but this limits the speed of their growth, and they usually take ~2 months to fully spread. The spores would be destroyed by stomach acid if ingested, and would cause damage to the lungs if inhaled, so they are rubbed thoroughly into the skin, sending their initial sprouts through pores.
Knitting spores are bioware [Moderate]
Knitting spores increase wound threshold by one.
