+1. I had an older Sulka coat with very similar looking un-tagged fabric. I called it Alpaca.

The little tag on mine you can sorta read (in person) says All Silk.  Pretty sure mine is 1940s too -- pretty close to the dimensions of WWII US uniform ties.

Arthur M. Rosenberg had a store which I remember in the 60s and or 70s in Manhattan in what I would call the "Ivy
District" in the east 40s off Madison near BB, J Press, Paul Stuart, Chipp. Tripler. I still have one of their (wide) ties
from the 70s .

Found this yesterday:

 

100% Cashmere Overcoat for Gimbels by Sandringham in really good shape (no holes). Extremely heavy. Someone posted a similar one earlier, I believe.
