As I understand it, it's not the issue with the silk, per se.
It has more to do with the particular type of silk, its density, its weave, the construction of the garment, whether it's colorfast, and such. Ironing silk is not easy, either, particularly if there is some detail to the garment.
Even a simple boyfriend-style silk shirt might not be colorfast. It used to be that you could dip a portion into water, but with so many items being worn out (not tucked in) that doesn't really work anymore.

I think the sad answer is sometimes, but you'll never know until you try which mans that if you love the blouse, I'd have it cleaned.

My experience is that REAL SILK can change color over time. It feels heavenly to wear, but do not get water on it intentionally.
Dry cleaning, especially if this is what the tag reads, is the only safe plan.

Well, thank you for your responses. I won't buy a silk shirt then! That is what I thought. Looks nice but is not practical. Thank you. I will stick with cotton button downs!
