I think so, but I've never seen it un-hemmed. I know there is lots of no-sew options for binding the edges though. Not silk, but I'd probably do that just because silky fabrics are hard to sew. I hope someone knows, because I would like to do the same w/ playsilks. It would be tons easier to leave them unhemmed.
option 1: use pinking shears on the edges... will unravel very very slowly!
option 2: 1/2 or 3/8" iron-on tape. Less than $2 at the Jo-Anne Fabrics, found in the sewing notions department. near needles, scissors, etc. I have used this for curtains, with success. [I have a sewing machines, but it was simpler to iron in all of the hems than to keep changing thread colors] Read the directions on the package!
After ironing, it is just like double sticky tape, but lighter and very permanent.
