Play silks allow imaginations to create and flow with the changing moods of play.
Uses are limited only by ones imagination; Squares of 90cm can be used for flowing landscapes, table cloths or dress ups: cloaks, skirts or wraps. Squares of 53cm can be used for wrapping dolls or bundles of treasures or in the centre of a table. A rectangle length of 2.7m long can be used for draping over tables or frames to create forts, cubbies and private little enclosures, even over a bassinet, cot or bed. Each size is available in a range of plain and/or variegated colours.
Hand wash, hang dry. We find children love to wash these themselves in a sink or bucket outside. The silk feels different and interesting when wet!
Above image shows variegated colours – rainbow, sea, starry night, blossom and fire. For more information see our web page playcloths and silks.

‘at any given moment, no matter where you are, there are hundreds of things around you that are interesting and worth documenting’* . Its amazing what we experience when we document something (whether by drawing or writing), when we look deeper we find details, patterns, characteristics and colours we never new existed. All the different parts of whatever it is we are looking at. Try looking around you this week and noticing detail, be an Explorer of this amazing world we live in.
