The stuff we have today called silk is different than period silk - more like
slipper silk?  I suppose it is possible for certain kinds of materials to
work and other kinds of the same material to fail. No, Tadgh, I never have
done a punch test on silk and you're right, it could hold up. The important
point is to do the test on any material before going to the trouble and
expense of making armor of it.
