Earth: Multiple shades of greens, brown and orange
Air: White and shades of light gray & blue

Hand-dyed by me with non-toxic dyes. Made of 100% Habotai 8mm China silk (17" x 17" is 10mm and takes the dye darker than the other sizes). Hand-rolled hem on all sides.
Playsilks are a wonderful toy for open-ended play...they can be used as blankets, bandannas, capes, curtains, doll carriers, doll hammocks, costumes, skirts, flags, anything your child can imagine, they can become! They're also a wonderful addition to your Waldorf nature table and can be used as water, grass, ice, dirt, or any other surface your child can imagine!
These are dyed with colorfast dyes so the color should not run, but are best washed in cool water with a mild detergent by hand and dried flat or hung.
Please note that the size described is an industry defined size prior to processing. As such, the approximate finished size can possibly be smaller after dyeing. 8mm Habotai silk shrinks approximated 10% in length and 2% in width and 10mm Habotai silk (17"x17" size) shrinks approximately 3% in length and 1% in width
There will be slight variations between dye jobs and possibly imperfections as these are done one at a time by hand. The images are a great representation of what it will look like, but each one is unique! Please see my shop policies on issues with imperfections and exchanges.
I use non-toxic dyes which all conform to ASTM 4236 labeling standards for non-toxic materials.
