What is this and which creature made it? UK

Only the second one seen in my lifetime. This one in North Yorkshire moors and one in Scotland.

Looks like it's made of silk. I was guessing either a spider or caterpillar.

After a lot of google image searching. Finally found what this is.

It's an egg sac made by a spider from the Liocranidae family. Most likely Agroeca brunnea based on description from here http://srs.britishspiders.org.uk/por...groeca+brunnea
