I've narrowed down my umbrella choice to SAB in hickory. I plan to buy from classic luggage in DC. Besides the price of the umbrella itself, there is an option for a silk canopy ($500). I'm not interested in discussing the value (worth it or not). I would like to know what the benefit of silk over nylon would be??? Is it thicker or more distinctive? Any negatives?
