    That is my next question, how does it perform on a domestic sewing machine? I would be concerned that it would be too slippery and not adhere well to the fabrics in the sandwich. I pin baste, does that work? I will give it a try, it sounds lovely!

    I was lucky to buy two huge silk filled comforters in China. We watched them spread the silk fibers and then encase thewhole thing in a cotton outer comforter cover. I got the king size one to take it apart and use the 6 pounds of silk for quilts but hasnt happened yet. We love to sleep under the silk. It does not settle into piles like down but stays in place and is light and warm.
