I'm virtually certain this isn't real silk.   My guess is that it's a rayon
or possibly a very fine pima type cotton.
    I tried rubbing one of those dry cleaning bags/pads on it and it helped
quite a bit, but there's still a long ways to go.   (It may, in fact, be
beyond hope.)
    Thanks for the suggestions, folks.
