A simple, open-ended, natural plaything is magic in a child's hands.

My little girls play with their play silks every day, and one or the other seem to always have these three play silks, dyed in the primary colors of red, yellow, and blue, in their hands. These 30"x30" play silks stream out behind them as they run, become everything from fairy wings to a stuffed kitten hammock to a pirate's flag in their pretend play, cover their knees like a blanket when they snuggle down in the book corner.

The 8mm silk that makes up these play silks is so light, while remaining very sturdy, that it allows my girls to independently create elaborate play structures and other inventions without my assistance. They knot these play silks together to make a rope to pull a basket of toys up to the nook in their favorite tree, tie them around their waists as skirts and around their shoulders as capes, and use them as props in any number of other daily engineering marvels.

Do you like the colors in this play silk? Color theory is a large component of our homeschool, and treating these three play silks as a set helps my little girls remember the primary colors. I use a professional silk dye to dye our play silks, which means...wait for it...that they're WASHABLE!!! Honestly, I don't know what I'd do if they weren't. Simply wash in cold water, hang to dry or dry on low temp in the dryer, and your play silk is again ready for playing. The color is consistent throughout each play silk--no mottling or uneven colors!

And don't worry about all the loving wear that the play silks in these photos are undergoing. The play silks in the photos are my children's own--your play silks were dyed right next to them during the entire process, so they're as identical as two handmade pieces can be. At your request, I'm happy to email you a photograph of the exact play silks that I'll be sending you--feel free to do this before or after you order.

Through the Christmas season, play silks may take up to a maximum of two weeks from the date that you order them to the date that I mail them--they never take longer than two weeks to mail, often take less time, and sometimes can be mailed almost immediately. If you're in a time crunch, please Convo me in advance of your purchase for a shipping estimate. Include your zip code.
