There's a school of thought out there that says tanglesome, flyaway fibres 
are easier to handle when slightly damp -- the usual recommendation is to 
dampen them with a sponge.  I can see where this would help with rayon 
flosses (have I mentioned I *hate* rayon?), but personally, with Madeira 
silks I've never seen the need.  They're very easy to work with.  I haven't 
used Splendor (my LNS carries the Madeira) but if you don't have a problem 
with them, I'd say don't worry about it.  If it ain't broke ....  ;-)
