I want to buy a 6 foot and a 12 foot parachute. I have seen parachutes with two different fabrics. One seems thicker and is stiffer. I want parachutes with the thinner fabric. Does anyone know which type of fabric these parachutes are? Or, can you describe the fabric these parachutes are made from. Thanks.
Best Answer:I have the smaller one. The fabric is smooth and crisp - a sharp object would easily rip it (and like a plastic bag I think the hole would then spider). It is very easily cleaned - wipes right off. I have not attempted to put it in the washer/dryer as it is a bit more plastic-like then silk-like.
Hi! I have this parachute and it is thin ( to me anyways). Easy to roll up and put away and super easy for my two year old to play with. She can lift and carry it very easily and when she is not using it with music from her class she spreads it out like a blanket to play on. We love it! Hope that helps!!
Hi, The S&S Worldwide W2367 6' Parachute w/ 6 Handles has a rather stiff feel to the fabric. The one pictured her though is different from the one I have. I love the S&S Worldwide W2367 6' Parachute w/ 6 Handles because it really holds up to classroom wear and tear.
Nothing smaller than the medium but you will probably need the large one. I have the small and medium and the small is just to small. However if you are using it indoors you will need a large space for the large size. I teach about 17 kids at a time and I use the medium.
Best Answer:The parachute has 6 handles, with about 3 feet between each handle. Small children usually hold 1 handle with both hands. An adult would be comfortable holding 1 or 2 handles. So 6 people could each hold 1 handle, or 1 adult could hold 2 handles with 4 children each holding 1.
