    From Martha Stewart:

    Materials
    Small- to medium-size raw eggs
    Glass or enamel pot
    Silk ties, blouses, or boxers, cut into pieces large enough to cover an egg
    White sheets (or pillowcases or old tablecloths), cut into pieces to cover silk-wrapped eggs
    Twist ties
    3 tablespoons of white vinegar
    Warm water
    Vegetable oil
    Paper towels
    Tongs or spoon

    Technique
    1. Cut silk into a square (or a piece) large enough to wrap around a raw egg.

    2. Wrap a raw egg with a piece of silk, making sure the printed side of the material is facing the egg. Silk can still be used if it doesn't fit perfectly around egg.

    3. Place the silk-wrapped egg in a piece of white sheet, pillowcase, or old tablecloth and secure tightly with a twist-tie.

    4. Place the egg(s) in an enamel or glass pot. Fill pot with water to cover eggs completely. Then, add three tablespoons of white vinegar.

    5. Bring water to a boil, turn heat down, and simmer for 20 minutes (longer if you plan on eating the eggs).

    6. Remove eggs from water with tongs or spoon and let cool.

    7. Remove silk from cooled egg.

    8. For shiny eggs, wipe with vegetable oil after completing step 7.

    I seen this somewhere before - the color or pattern from the silk transfers to the egg! Therefore, using the silk makes the color transferring easier!
