    Since you don't know the background I would say that would be the safest. I would not breed brother/ sister together if they all had the same mother/father. If it was the same father but different mothers than I think it is ok. If you are not sure than add some new blood. Anyway, this is only my opinion and I'm no expert breeder. Maybe someone else can give you better advise.

    I LOVE silkies! Cute little fluff balls. Good Luck!
