There's something that says you need to wet silk floss before you use
it?  Is this to wash it out or should it be wet as you stitch with
it?  I did a favor for my boyfriend in silk on linen and treated it
like cotton floss -- I used Splendor and was very happy with it.  I'm
planning a major project (for me it's major!) and will definitely use
Splendor -- the price is right, and it's readily available at my LNS
(Local Needlework Shop).

So what's this about wetting silk...?
