Silk liners

I'm in a "gearing up" mode and began looking at silk sleeping bag liners. I'm interested in silk because of the weight and temperature improvement as advertised. Does anyone use a silk liner, or a liner made of any other material? Does a liner really make a difference? Is silk worth the cost?
Thanks,

You can get a very nice affordable silk liner from a company in New Zealand called 'Jagbags'. Get the endura silk.

Thanks for the recommendation VERA. I was looking at another New Zealand company, New Zealand Nature Company, but couldn't find anyone who had used them or their liners.

Cool! As a matter of fact I have some links to reviews of the JagBag and I love mine (got the rectangular white endura for $32.00 *shipped*.) I use it in a mummy and it is quite luxurious. Thinking about getting silk sheets and pillowcases from them now...
ANYWAY here are the review links:

Good luck!

I sent a message to JagBags and within a couple of hours, Jackie replied with answers to all of my questions. She(?) even suggested that I have them add elastic to the top of the standard rectangular bag, which they will do without additional charge. Her prompt reply, coupled with your recommendation and the reviews you provided (THANKS?), have convinced that I need this liner! Thanks for all of your help.

Jagbags!

VERA,
Thanks for the tip on Jagbags. I placed the order a week ago (as of yesterday) and received the two liners today. I never dreamed that Jackie Gardiner could have the liners to me in a week, but she did it. Of course, I haven't tried one yet, but the silk looks to be of high quality; I bought the standard size bag, with Endura silk. Even with shipping, I bought two liners from New Zealand for the same amount that I would have paid for one from anywhere else. I'm REALLY looking forward to my troop's backpacking trip in February.
