Ombre Aerial Silks Fabric Only

100% No-risk - easy returns

Confidently practice at home or set up your studio with our 40 Denier Nylon Tricot fabric.
This includes Aerial FABRIC ONLY. Fabrics are typically cut to order.
The fabric is a low-medium stretch weave, easy to climb, and holds up to 900kgs. The smallest silks measure 9 yards (28ft) long by 98-108in wide (8.2M x 2.5-2.8M) with larger sizes up to 15 yards (45ft) long by 108in wide. Widths vary by print. Our smallest size allows about 13.5ft of length to fall to each side. If you need a larger size, send us a message.
Now available in hand-dyed ombre colors! Please note: The ombre silks are hand-dyed meaning that each silk is unique to you. For prints, the pattern repeats approximately every 2 meters. Every silk is a work of art. Larger sizes are available upon email request! 
What length do I need for aerial silks?
Take the height from the ground to your rigging point, and multiply by 2, then add 1-2 yards additional to allow for some extra fabric on the ground. 

Examples with 2 yards of extra fabric on the ground:
  • 10-foot/3 meter ceiling height = purchase 9 yards of fabric.
  • 12-foot/3.6 meter ceiling height = purchase 10 yards of fabric. 
  • 15-foot/4.6 meter ceiling height = purchase 12 yards of fabric.
  • 20-foot/6 meter ceiling height = purchase 15 yards of fabric.

These are just recommendations and you can purchase more or less fabric depending on what length you prefer. Need longer fabric? See our Extended Sizes available here or contact us for more colors.

The silks set contains Nylon Tricot Fabric (no hardware):

It's the best quality, most comfortable, low-medium stretch fabric perfect for aerial dance. The ombre silks are hand-dyed meaning that each silk is unique to you and colors may vary.

Aerial silks should always be installed by a professional rigger. Please search in your local area to find someone certified to rig your silks safely to prevent serious injury. Always use a crash mat when practicing aerial silks!

    BEAUTIFUL & Fun!

    Got this one for my daughter and she LOVES it! The colors are a little different than it looks on the computer, but still beautiful & fits her personality perfectly.

    I love the color but I am disappointed in the stretch. It did say in TINY font that it is a low-medium stretch, unlike the solid colors that are low. So I'm incredibly unhappy about that. I have been in medium stretch fabric. It's frustrating, but not terrible. This is by far the stretchiest fabric I've ever been in. I tied a knot at my head level, got in the knot and was 2 feet off the ground. Not worth the effort and time of sending it back, so I am keeping them. But I definitely do not suggest buying anything but solid colors from Uplift if you want something fun. They're affordable, but they honestly ****.

    Hi Teil, I'm really sorry the silk is not what you expected. We accept returns within 30 days of your delivery. We're happy to help sort this out for you. The ombre colors are a little stretchier than our solid colors and long fabric will always feel stretchier than shorter fabrics (we noticed this order was for 18 yards). We find that people have different preferences and expectations when it comes on to stretch and we're here to help find fabric that meets your needs. Thank you for your feedback! Take Care, Kereen

    Beautiful; a bit stretchy and slippery

    The silks were stretchier than I expected, but still fine for climbing. They were also a bit slippery - not sure if it was the clothes I was wearing or the silks, but I found myself slipping even in positions I've previously found to be very secure (eg hip key). I got the blue ombre and it's really beautiful.

    Rainbow silks

    We were really excited about our new silka as they are really amazing! The colors are fantastic. They feel absolutely different from my previous silks but doing drops on them is much better as it hurts much less. We really love our new silks and are planning to order again in a year.

    Ombré Fabric

    I have bought fabrics of the same material before but this ombré one is much more stretchy than I anticipated. The nylon tricot usually has a bit of give but not like this one.

    Hi there,   Thank you so much for your feedback. The ombre fabrics are stretchier; low-medium stretch, if you prefer something low stretch then we recommend our solid colors. Thanks so much! Aerial Fabrics:
