STUNNING COLOURS

 

These fabrics look stunning at home, in the studio, or on the stage. The fading ombre colours and the dazzling multi-colour designs look particularly stunning when backlit and make for incredible photos as well as performances.

Prodigy use a heat printing technique which gives a high degree of precision to the colours. This means the ombre colour will change gradually, look natural, and look consistent across batches. Hand dying won’t allow for such a high degree of precision and consistency.

While we could go on about how good they look, but that part is obvious, what is even more important is these silks are…

 

GREAT TO USE!

 

One of the other benefits of heat printing is that it keeps the yarn smooth and soft, so it feels great. Hand dying processes can negatively affect the texture of the fabric. These fabrics have a nice shine to them while having more grip than our single colour Prodigy Aerial Silks.

These are low stretch like our single colour Prodigy Aerial Silks. It makes them easy to climb, so they’re suitable for beginners. Low stretch is not the same as no stretch, though, so they do have just a little bit of bounce which makes them comfortable for drops and wraps.

At 2.8m/110 inches wide these are excellent for cocoons and width-based wraps. They’re also perfect as a hammock/loop! You can find our 6m Aerial Yoga sets with this fabric here.

Although they’re wide, at 40 denier, they won't be too bulky for most aerialists' hands!

 

PERFORMANCE OR PRACTICE

 

The vertical colour fade of the ombre colours will also help you to find the edges of the fabric quickly and easily. This makes separation of the fabric SO much easier which will save time and energy whether you’re on the stage or in the studio.

 

USEFUL AND REUSABLE BAG

 

What's better than a single use plastic bag to store your silks in transit? A bag you can use again and again!

The rolltop bag supplied with this is perfect for carrying your silk and all the rigging too. With a 35L capacity it's the perfect aerial kit bag and will fit ALL lengths of silks we sell + the rigging.

SLACK DROPS

 

All Aerial fabrics are prone to reaching high temperatures during long or high energy slack drops, this can result in small, melted patches, and even holes. These holes are caused by the friction of the fabric rubbing against itself and the performer during high speed movement. Nylon and low stretch fabrics are more susceptible, so it is important to inspect these silks regularly if you routinely perform slack drops. However, you should always take care when practicing slack drops, and be aware of the high amount of friction you can generate during these drops.

If you regularly perform slack drops, you will need to inspect the full length of your fabric regularly, and the fabric will need replacing more often

You can find out how to care for and wash your silks (here).

 

IMPORTANT NOTE…

 

Everything above assumes you have a suitable and safe rigging point, like a professionally installed rigging point or a reputable and rated freestanding rig. Not every home/studio will be the same, so we cannot advise on this part. If you haven’t established a safe rigging point, please do this first with the help of a structural engineer/experienced rigger/professional familiar with what you're hanging and where you're hanging it. You can find some more information on how to install at home here and general aerial safety here.
