    If this is in regard to a surgical procedure (sewing up something) it may mean using silk (thread) to close the wound.

    Natural silk surgical suture is nonabsorbable, sterile, flexible, multifiliment thread composed of an organic protien called fibrogen. It is derived from a domesticated species Bombymori (B. mori) of the Bombycidae family. It can be braided or twisted dyed or undyed
