Printed 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 approximately 98-108in wide (8.2M x 2.8M) with larger sizes up to 15 yards (45ft) long by 108in wide. Our smallest size allows about 13.5ft of length to fall to each side. Widths may vary per color and print due to fabric dying processes. If you need a custom or larger size, send us a message.
Now available in printed colors! For the tie dye, print 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 something custom.

    Awesome pattern, great value for money. I had to pay a custom tax however which I wasn’t expecting and I would have liked a bit more of vertical stretch so that drops would be a bit more comfortable.

    Uplift Active

    Hi Faye! Thank you so much for sharing your experience! Sorry to hear that the customs tax - orders to Canada the UK and EU typically have tax due on delivery as our store can't collect that at checkout. We have medium stretch color options if available if you'd like something a bit stretchier! - Uplift Active

    Not 2.8m wide, more like 2.3m

    I bought the 8 yards blue tie dye silk and I was very happy with it. Until I tried the vampire pose and the silk barely covered my feet! I measured it twice and it was only 2.3m wide, not 2.8m as advertised. After asking about it, I was told that the ombres and prints are a little narrower in width due to the printing and dye process.

    Uplift Active

    Hi Lourdes, Oh no! We are surprised to see the sad review, as we had spoken by email about the width on the fabric and thought you were happy with it. We offered to exchange it but you declined. It's true the printed are not as wide, which for very tall individuals is more challenging for vampire pose, but our solid colors are wider. We've clarified this on our website. Please reach out to us if you would like to try another color!
