Usage of Silk in Magic

Another epiphany of the evening:

The reason why silk cloth is used so frequently in magic is not primarily that it is a sign of respect to spiritual powers by dint of its expense and pleasantness– it is because it comes from a manner of animal which undergoes metamorphosis, and the power of metamorphosis is lent to themagic through contact with it.

There are hints of this in Picatrix.
