www.silkbaron.com is one of the best suppliers of silk that I know of online.

Also, Angus International in Hong Kong is good. Their sample pack is a bargain at $10 and well worth it. Despite their being in Hong Kong, they are a great company to deal with.

B.R Exports is another supplier, they have an excellent range. http://www.puresilks.biz/store/index.php

Hope these get you started :)

Fashion Fabrics Club is screamin' cheap, if you have time and patience: http://www.fashionfabricsclub.com/
The usual caveats around buying fabric online do apply (the color shown on your computer monitor may or may not resemble the color of the actual fabric, etc.), but I've gotten awesome silks from them, at preposterous prices.
