Confidently practice at home or set up your studio with our 40 Denier Nylon Tricot fabric.
The fabric is a medium stretch weave, providing cushion and bounce in tricks, and holding 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 shorter fabric? See our Standard Sizes available here or contact us for something custom.
