    How to Test for Real Silk:

    The Burn Test

    Pull out a loose thread from the silk product you're interested in. Now burn it.

    What Should Happen
    The thread should simply ball up and turn to ash when lit.

    The burning silk should smell like burning hair. (Both substances mainly consist of a fibrous protein – fibroin in the case of silk and keratin in the case of hair.)

    The ash should be black and crispy/brittle.

    As soon as the flame is removed, the thread should do nothing more (no further burning).

    What Should Not Happen: Dead Giveaways to Artificial Silk
    The thread should not melt/bubble/drip when lit.

    The burning silk should not smell like burning paper. (Rayon is a popular silk substitute, and like paper, mostly consists of cellulose.)

    The ash should not be soft and chalky.

    The thread should not continue to burn after the flame is removed.
