egg sac?

egg sac?
Sacramento, Sacramento County, California, USA
November 3, 2019
Any thoughts on what this might be? Found on an exterior shed zone 9, Sacramento region of California, USA. Posting with permission from a friend. Guessing spider egg sack, but maybe some sort of pupae/cocoon? though it seems like something much more likely to have been made by a critter outside (e.g. egg sac) than by a critter on the inside (e.g. cocoon or pupae)...
Any help much appreciated!
