I think the general consensus is that it's not vegan, and I'm pretty sure silkworms are crushed in the process of making it. sad

Would never wear silk. The silk worms are submerged in hot water to get the silk out easier. It kills them and its cruel.

I wouldn't wear silk, which is a shame, theres so many kinds of silk tahts so nice.

also means getting a custom made  wedding dress! but there is an upside..satin is cheaper than silk haha

Silk is not vegan, and is cruel. sad Unfortunately the other day I bought a skirt from work (since I need to wear their clothes as my uniform) without realizing that it was a silk skirt. =/ I'll be selling it as soon as I find a new job.
