Silkies are female spirits purported to live on the English-Scottish Border.


In mythology, silkies are female spirits clothed in silk. Although usually helpful and valued, performing chores and guarding houses against harmful intruders, they can also be mischievous, leaving houses they inhabit in disarray.[1]
