Silk is a protein fiber and usually burns readily, not necessarily with a steady flame, and smells like burning hair. The ash is easily crumbled. Silk samples are not as easily extinguished as cotton or linen. Nylon is a polyamide made from petroleum. Nylon melts and then burns rapidly if the flame remains on the melted fiber. If you can keep the flame on the melting nylon, it smells like burning plastic.
Nylon ignites and burns quickly and can continue to burn after a flame is removed - exercise caution. Fiber may shrink from the flame, melt, and can drip (DANGER) leaving a hard plastic-like bead. The flame produced has a sparkle to it and an orange tip and blue base will be observed. The ash produced resembles tough amber beads. Burning this fabric will produce white smoke.
