Woven Backpacks

Woven Backpacks are larger versions of the Backpacks. They can hold 45 stacks. The player will need the smaller backpack, a good collection of Woven Silk and a Diamond to make the larger ones. Place them in a Carpenter with some water and to acquire the Woven Backpack. The only backpacks that don't have a Woven variety are the Apiarist's and Lepidopterist's backpacks.
