Hand touching: Authentic silk certainly makes you feel its smoothness when you touch by hand. Or you can apply it on your skin and slowly pull, you will feel like silk pulling your hand again.
Authentic silk will feel cool, smooth, very thin, soft and light. Silk fibers are iridescent when illuminated by light and do not stick to the skin.
Imitation silk will feel a bit cold. The silk thread is not shiny and light.
Luster: By observing, authentic silk seems to have many different colors when the light shines. Synthetic silk will only have the white.
Pattern: Patterns printed on one side of fake silk cloths cannot be seen on the other one. In contrast, with authentic silk, you can see the fuzzy printed pattern
Test burning: it is not easy to test silk quality by burning it in the shop. But if the seller burns it to demonstrate the quality, you will see it is burnt to ashes.
