A beautiful Waldorf inspired natural silk limited edition playsilk in the vibrant colour variation gooseberry from the Sarah’s Silks holiday playsilk collection. Measuring 90 x 90 centimetres, the playsilk is made from 100% fairly traded Mulberry silk, hemmed by hand and dyed with non-toxic, eco-friendly dye.
The quintessential fabric toy for the world of Waldorf fantasy and imaginative play, a playsilk can be used for dress up to make a cape, skirt or wings, folded into a dolls sling, be tied onto a makeshift pole to wave as a flag, draped over chairs to build a tent or fort with, adorn a doll house as a rug or blanket or to play peek-a-boo with. Laid on the floor, a playsilk can be turned into green for grass, red for lava, yellow for sand or blue as a lake or sea to sail a boat on. A play space is instantly turned into a magic fairy land for dancing and self-expression with the floaty playsilks!
The Sarah’s Silks playsilks come in a wide variety of vibrant solid jewel tones and pastel colours. They are versatile and besides for creative play they can also be used for Waldorf nature tables, to add colour to a seasonal table, to serve as decorations for rainbow birthday parties or to wrap a gift in.
Sarah’s Silks playsilks are inspiring, magical toys that children will be drawn to play with time and time again! The simplicity and open-ended nature of playsilks tap directly into the child’s creative potential and allows them to express their imagination and support their independence.
