Personal experience: it is a witch to work with.  Snags like a son of a gun
if I've been gardening.

I suggest (1) trying it in the winter when your hands have had a chance to
recover and (2) getting one of the special hand creams, from a needlework
shop, that will soften your hands without staining the silk.  Really does
