I have been up and running for a couple years now and I LOVE IT!
"My first silks lesson was summer of 2009, and I was instantly hooked! I began teaching two years later to a local dance troupe and then furthered my career by moving to Florida summer of 2012! After further training I opened Sarasota Warrior, an all things acrobatic and aerial school for lovers of movement like myself! Our focus was aerial yoga/silks but also included activities such as pole, acroyoga, dance and fitness classes! I have been selling aerial gear since then and I'm now here for you! To help you make the best decision possible for YOUR aerial advancement! I have taught beginners to advanced in both aerial silks/aerial yoga, I have taught young and old, privates and groups! I will use all the knowledge I have acquired to help you in finding the right piece! I'm so excited you have come here for your aerial needs!"
I use 40 Denier Nylon Tricot, the leading industry standard for low stretch material! It stretches mostly across the width however you will feel some give at the end of a long drop. The longer the length of your fabric the more give you will feel at the bottom. Greatly recommend for beginners but loved by newbies and professionals alike! I have been using this fabric since 2009 and still ADORE it! Makes great training and performance fabric as it is soft, flowy and catches light beautifully! When you climb it will not stretch but it will give way to you slightly.
This material is 108" wide, durable and machine washable! You can strip/cut the fabric safely without the need for searing if you need a more narrow width! I would recommend using very sharp fabric scissors and keep the material taut while cutting. Machine wash and dry like a delicate! Detailed instructions for care come with the package! The gear is a sling based system designed to loop over your rig/rigging. Remember that safety is ultimately your responsibility! If you are unsure about rigging please hire a professional or attend a rigging workshop! As the popularity is rising for this sport there are many rigging workshops popping up across the country!

Fabric Fading - Sky Blue is especially sensitive to light and will fade in just 1-2 hours of straight sun exposure. Jade is also sensitive to UV light! Fading does not affect the integrity of the fabric, just the color. Colors can vary slightly due to moniter/phone screens!

Tyedyeing? Ombre? - "In the past year there has been a new rising star in the gear community! Tyedyed and Ombre dyed fabrics! YES, you can do it at home. But let's be realistic, fabric can be a large investment and why run the risk of accidentally messing something up! I have been actively dyeing fabrics for the past year, I have done ombre dyes, spiral dyes, mandala dyes, ice dyes, tri-colors, fades, crinkles and more! I have experimented and found the best colors that blend, learned the secrets of creating the best fade, know what colors to avoid etc.. and I simply LOVE creating! I want to help you achieve the dye beauty of your dreams!! <3"-Sam
