Is silt by itself actually cohesive?

I have read multiple resources that are slightly vague. one describe silt as “small particle with occasional plasticity”
Is silt by itself be considered cohesive soil?

Good question. Pure silt is not cohesive. If there is clay in it, it will have cohesive properties.
