This Hot Pink Ultra PLA is so far the only silk red PLA that admits in the name it can appear a little pink when printed. I have yet to find a real red silk PLA but this one is the best so far for a budget. 3D Solutech Ultra prints well and has a great line of colors.

3D Solutech is a quality made in USA filament. They have a wide selection and are budget friendly. 3D Solutech is a great source for transparent, silk (called Ultra), and normal filaments. I only had one bad roll and  they replaced it very quickly without hesitation. A bad roll can happen to anyone. 3D Solutech is sold in 1KG sizes on plastic spools. They also include stickers with their rolls.
