Nylon Tricot Aerial Fabric

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 stretch weave, easy to climb, and holds up to 900kgs. The smallest silks measure 9 yards (28ft) long by 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. If you need a custom or larger size, send us a message.
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.

  • High Strength 100% Nylon Tricot with a Shimmer Finish

It's the best quality, most comfortable, low stretch fabric perfect for aerial dance. We have 10 colors available to choose from (see color chart).

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!

    Love these silks!

    I recently bought the split silk after buying an aerial hammock from Uplift! Their silks are excellent quality and they get it to you in a timely manner! Definitely buying more from them in the future. So many different colors and patterns they are beautiful!

    Red Nylon Tricot Aerial Silk Fabric

    It’s Beautiful Fabric. Thicker than my ombré silk hammock. The Red Color is more of a red orange than Darker Red. It does look darker when photographed.
