Prodigy Multicoloured Aerial Silk 12m - Watercolour Splash. 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. We use a heat printing technique on our fabrics which gives a high degree of precision to our colours. This means the ombre colour will change gradually, look natural, and look consistent across batches.
Hand dying wont 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.
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 Aerial Silks. It makes them easy to climb, so theyre 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. Theyre also perfect as a hammock/loop!Although theyre wide, at 40 denier, they won't be too bulky for most aerialists' hands. 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 youre on the stage or in the studio. 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.
UK Made, Tested, and Certified. The heat printing process does not negatively affect the strength of the yarn, another benefit compared to some hand dying methods. These fabrics are made, tested, and certified in the UK. Working Load Limit on Figure 8 - 171kg/377lb. Working Load Limit on Prodigy Aerial Silk Hook 171kg/377lb.
These Working Load Limits include a FOS (Factor of Safety) of 7:1 and are based on loading up to 1200kg, at this point NO damage/deflection/tearing occurred. 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.
