I'm working on completing two Steffen blanks and am planing on using silk to wrap the guides. I have previously used nylon for all wraps, and am wondering if there are any specific differences that I should know about.

I'm also trying to finalize color selection and opinions would be appreciated.
Right now I have the Pearsall Jasper, Chestnut, Black, and Antique Gold. I'm thinking about ordering a forest green (YLI 221) and have a maroon in nylon currently. The Steffen blanks are a chestnut color.
