Play Silks, more versatile than most make-believe play toys, can be used in a multitude of ways: as blankets, capes, curtains, doll carriers, costumes, flags, walls for forts...
Their versatility is matched only by their durability, which is truly remarkable for such a soft, fine fabric. Play Silks embody the notion of "the simpler, the better" in supporting children's natural, imaginative, and creative play, and they're also the ideal craft fabric for making angels, string puppets, capes, etc. Handmade; sizes will vary. Hand wash; hang to dry. Imported.
For all ages.

Comments about Product: My "child" is 16 now... I purchased these nearly a decade ago, thinking they were sooo expensive, but wanting to try a "different" sort of toy- One that might hold her attention longer than a week. Nearly 10 years later, & she is still "playing" with them... Over the years, these incredible, 3-ft. large squares of pure breezy silk, have transformed into butterfly wings, fairy princesses, pirates, forts (when tied onto table/chair legs), headbands, skirts, entire dresses (w/a safety pin), Roman Toga's, Shiek veils, flags, capes, princess & villains costumes, batman, used nearly every year in Halloween costumes & school plays, etc... Every time her little friends came over to play, they all went 1st for these silkies. Thrown into the "dress up basket" for storage (on those rare occasions we cleaned up!). Sometimes getting juice, kethcup, or Mom's make-up on them- Always easily washed/dryed in the regular laundry (I used a lingerie bag). These are by FAR the absolute best investment EVER- Uses limited only by your child's imagination. Recently, I've been asking my "grown up" daughter if she's ready to let these go... "No Mom, I still play with them!". I always think of these like the large cardboard box that expensive toys come in, where your kids play with the box, for far longer than the costly toy that came in it. These silks are very colorful, breezy- My daughter was just enchanted by the lightweight breeziness of the silk fabric. If you are on the fence, like I was, thinking how "costly" these are- I suggest just go ahead & try them... If nothing else, your kids will be enchanted w/ the silky, breezy texture of these silks, on their skin &/or dancing in the wind (tied to a stick)! My only regret it not buying them even earlier- These can be enjoyed by babies of all ages (under supervision of course!)- Happy holidays- Enjoy! PS- If you want to comparison shop, Google "play silks"... These are the best I found!

Comments about Product: My 2 boys - ages 9 and 12! - have played with these more than any item in our home. We have had them for many years, and they still fight over them. I can't think of anything they HAVEN'T used them for - dressing up as anything and everything, wrapping packages, hanging them to make backdrops for putting on shows, props for magic shows. My 9-year-old sleeps with them now, insisting that they keep him warm. I came back to order some more. There is no limit to the creativity they inspire.

These scarves have countless uses!
Comments about Product: These scarves seemed pricey, but I ordered them last Christmas. At first my girls did not know what to make of them, but once I showed them a few ideas their imaginations took off. Now almost a year later, the girls still pick these scarves as some of the first props during play. We lost one traveling and they still mourn the loss. The quality is outstanding. I have not tried to wash them, because I have not had a reason to try.

Comments about Product: Within minutes of the end of the birthday gift opening extravaganza, all of the other toys lay on the floor, forgotten, while my sons (2 and 5) used these silks to have the family dress up as pirates. I hesitated on these, because I have only boys and they seemed girly, but my sons love them.

My kids enjoy these silks
Comments about Product: My kids have used these regularly starting at age 2 and continuing now that my daughter is 9. When my kids were 3 and 6, they played with them every single day. They love them and find so many uses for them! I'm buying them for my niece and nephew now -- 2 colors for a birthday present and 2 colors at Christmas to spread out the cost. My kids have 5 scarves of different colors, and they've really enjoyed having that number. They're wonderfully durable, but don't tie the scarves extremely tightly or you'll damage the weave. These are great!
