Question Floss or phlosse?

Sorry about that... I tie spey and Dee flies, plus soft hackle trout flies and others that call for floss bodies or tags. I've read that such patterns should be tied with silk floss to be allowed into respectable society. But common rayon floss is what is usually offered to us as fly tying material. Does it really make a difference?
