Why is Aerial Silk Sometimes Slippery?

Many of our customers ask about which fabric is the least slippery.

Here is our answer:

All aerial fabric, Tricot, Interlock, Tricot with some stretch, and matte Tricot can be slippery based on the amount of humidity in the air, the amount of moisture on your hands and feet, the type of clothing you are wearing, and the air temperature.

We recommend that you try using rosin if you find you need more gripping strength. You can mix the powdered rosin with rubbing alcohol, not too much of either one and you will find it does wonders! “I use it all the time since my hands are smooth and dry and the fabric slips easily no matter which one I am using!” Lynn Coleman

That being said, we have noticed that the new tricot with some stretch does seem to offer more grip. It does not matter which color.
We offer rosin under “other supplies” here is the link:
