What length of aerial silks do I need?

Take the height from the ground to your rigging point, multiply by 2, then add 1-2 yards to allow for some extra fabric on the ground.

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

These are just recommendations;  you can purchase more or less fabric depending on your preferred length . Need longer fabric? See our extended Sizes available here, or contact us for something custom.

Not sure where to hang your silks? Try our portable A-Frame Rig. We recommend getting the 10-yard length for use with our portable rigs.

Your Questions, Answered

We recommend measuring from the floor to your rigging point and then multiplying by 2. Our fabrics are available in lengths from 9 - 18 yards, plus custom extended sizing upon request.

Our hardware set includes everything you need to properly rig your silks properly.
• 2 Screw-Lock Stainless Steel Carabiners (CE & EN Certified) rated up to 25KN (5620LBF).
• 1 Figure Eight (Descender): made of high-quality Aluminum, rated up to 32KN (7194LBF)

Fabric stretch refers to the amount of “give” that your fabric offers you in the air. For beginners, we recommend a low-stretch fabric that provides plenty of support for climbs. Medium stretch fabric is preferable for experienced aerialists performing drops and other advanced skills.

You should always consult a rigging professional to ensure that your silks are installed properly. We recommend contacting your local aerial studios for recommendations on rigging professionals in your area. If you can’t find nearby riggers, our portable aerial rig is a wonderful option that offers easy set-up and durable materials that have been tested by industry professionals to ensure optimum safety.

9-yr daughter loves this

Our 9-year daughter does gymnastics & had some prior experience using silks at a circus camp. Our only "issue" is that the length is VERY long. We hung it maybe 20 ft high from a tree branch, and there's still excess material on the ground. But she is very happy & enjoys playing with the silks.

Hello Brandon,

Thanks so much for your feedback, we are happy to hear your daughter loves her Aerial Silks!:)

Kind Regards,

Chad Colgan
Aerial Silks

The hardware is top of the line quality, however my daughter claims the material of the silk is different than she’s used to, and it is causing her some minor discomfort. At first it was giving her a silk burn on the sides of her torso, which was solved with clothing, but now it’s bothering the sides of her feet.

Hello Chad,

Thanks so much for your feedback! Our silks may be different from the other brands that your daughter is used to using.

Many aerialists will long pants/shirt until they are comfortable with the fabric on their body. We don't have any suggestions for the sides of her feet, but hope that the discomfort will go away as the silks break in.

If we can help in any way in the future please reach out:)

Happy Flying!

Good low stretch silks

Pretty happy with my purchase, the low stretch fabric really doesn’t stretch much, just as I hoped.
Mind you the colour ‘dark purple’ turned out more of a pink / magenta sort of colour. I wasn’t happy with it initially but as it doesn’t affect the use of the silks I’ll just embrace the girly look.

Hello Barbara,

Thank you for your feedback! If you believe you may have received the incorrect color silks, please email us at and we'll be happy to assist:)

Kind Regards,
