Self healing fabric

Thought you guys might find this interesting. It's being used for backpacks so I imagine it might be suited, or could be suited, for making some gear.

I think I made something like that once. It was just a couple of pieces of fabric, slightly stretched and laminated together with a film-based glue that has stretch. When punctured, it seemed like it would creep back together and close.
Technically it didn't, and skewing the yarn enough will cause it to break especially if it's something that's repeated.

Sil-Nylon can do this as well, but curious to see where this goes.
