I don't think so. I suppose it depends how much the fibres are actual matted together. We know 'felt' fabric isn't always made from wool, but it is a sheet of matted fibres whether done by wet felting or needle punching.
If the fabric holds together without the stitching, and can be cut without falling apart, I suppose it could be known as 'silk felt'.
But, it does say 'One of the best things about needle-felting silk fabrics is that nothing is permanent until you make it so. If something doesn’t look right or ends up in the wrong place, pull it up, and start again.' and 'Use free-motion stitching to hold the felted texture.'
So, I'd say no, the piece made there is silk embellished with silk and stitching.

here's a pod I made, wet felted, then laid merino fibres between two layers of wash away material, then used an embroidery machine to embroider the swallow, then needle felted it onto the pod - look no joins :-)
