African Savannah play silk. Makes a wonderful play mat for imaginative play. Soft tan desert sand, mossy green grasslands and a blue watering hole.
Each silk is one of a kind. Hand-dyed by me with non-toxic dyes. Made of 100% Habotai 8mm China silk. (17"x17" is actually 10 mm). 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 by hand and dried flat.
There will be slight variations between dye jobs and possibly imperfections as these are done one at a time by hand. Each one is unique! Please do not expect perfection. You will most likely see bits of green, red and blue in the sand section. Please see my shop policies on issues with imperfections and exchanges.

**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**
I use non-toxic dyes which all conform to ASTM 4236 labeling standards for non-toxic materials.
