Colorful Hand-Dyed Play Silks - Large (35") or Small (21")

Colorful Hand-Dyed Play Silks - Large (35") or Small (21")


These fabulous play silks are beautiful, 35" x 35" or 21" x 21" squares, made from thick 8mm weight habotai silk. We have found that this heavier weight silk is extremely durable and will not tear or rip when making knots repeatedly over the years! These have held up with our girls wearing them out of doors, making forts, running through brambles, and essentially abusing them! We first started making our silks about 10 years ago for our first daughter, and we still use the same silks today for our third daughter. They are hand-hemmed, and are hand-dyed by us in the USA! They are available singly or as a great set of all twelve colors in both sizes. The Play Silks are available in the following colors:

  • Root Brown
  • Peony Peach
  • Tomato Red
  • Pumpkin Orange
  • Duckling Yellow
  • Spring Meadow Green
  • Moss Green
  • Sea Spray Aqua
  • Sky Blue
  • Indigo Blue
  • Hyacinth Purple
  • Mulberry Purple
  • Rosebud Pink (not pictured)
  • Mint Green (not pictured)
  • Lilac Purple (not pictured)

The silks are manufactured and hand-hemmed in China, and are hand-dyed here at A Toy Garden.  We hand-dye these in small batches in order to create the subtle variations of color that make each one unique! Hand-dyed, -ironed, and -packaged in Pennsylvania.

These silks are a quality 8mm weight, and will not tear after years of tying and untying knots and fort building!  The 35" x 35" silks are only $12.50 each when you buy them in the bundle of all 12 colors!  The 21" x 21" silks are only $8.33 each when you buy them in the bundle of 12 colors!

PLEASE NOTE:  As with all play silks, sizes vary from silk to silk.  They are hand-hemmed, dyed in very hot water, ironed, and each of these processes can change the size of the silks.  They are not perfect squares.  We find that children do not notice and enjoy each as it is.
