sorry to come back to the silk baron, but I think it is a good idea to get the matter sorted out of good.
obviously I was not very happy to hear that although they advertise their silks as 100% people claim they are not so. I wrote to them, somehow angrily, I admit, and that's what I got in reply:

Subject: Re: silk velvet
Greetings -- thank you for your email. Unfortunately, it sounds as if you have been misinformed by your sources. Our velvet is indeed 100% silk. If it were polyester, it would be stretchy (which of course it is not)...that is how one can tell the difference between the two...
Thank you again for checking with us -- good luck with your project!
All the best,
does anyone else have any correspondence with them when they say otherwise? would come in usefull, if they are well, not very truthful.... after all, polyester mix does not really mean it would be that strechy...
any ideas or opinions welcome
