Rainbow striped play silks. Choose either vertical or horizontal stripes. Please take note that these silks do not contain an indigo stripe unless requested.
Each silk is one of a kind. Hand-dyed by me with non-toxic dyes. Made of 100% Habotai 8mm China silk. This is not the thin silk that other commercial silk dyers use. Hand-rolled hem on all sides. (Last two pictures are the pastel version)
These larger sized canopy silks are wonderful for using on playstands as a canopy or for open ended imaginative play. Great for making tents and forts. Also great for use 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. 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.

**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.
