I was given some Raw silk in fabric form. It is completely raw; no dye no nothing. Can this be used for my soap? and if so do you know how much I would use?

Yes you can use it as long as there are no dyes. You would use 1 square inch of fabric for a 2 pound batch, adjust accordingly for your size recipe. Be sure you soak it for about 15 minutes in your liquid before adding your lye and stir a lot until dissolved. :wink:
