Solid eggplant color playsilk hand dyed by me. Deep dark purple with hints of maroon and black. Please note that the colors will not be an exact match to the images above, those are just examples as I mix all dye by hand fresh for each silk. Dyes are non-toxic and safe for mouthing children. Made of 100% Habotai 8mm China silk. (17" x 17" is 10mm) 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.
