Steel Silk is required for the side mission involving the rebuilding of Colony 6. You will have to donate items and money to one of four different categories. On leveling up these categories, you will receive rewards and enhancements for your party. You require Steel Silk in order to unlock Housing Level 1 in Colony 6.

Xenoblade Chronicles Steel Silk Location
There are two different methods of getting your hands on Steel Silk in Xenoblade Chronicles. One, you can simply purchase them from individual traders. This is obviously the fastest and easiest way of obtaining them. The second method is to get them as drops in the wilds out there. This is not as hard as it sounds, as long as you know precisely where to look. Let us take a look at both of these methods in detail.
You can obtain Steel Silk as a random world drop in the Tephra Cave. They are similar in appearance to normal item orbs. Although they can appear anywhere in the Tephra Cave, they have been known to be more likely to turn up near locations featuring water, such as the area around the Vilia Lake. In fact, the game’s in-game description hints towards this as well.
