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.

what size parachute should I get for 20 children and 4 adults?
Janet L on May 23, 2012
Best Answer: The 12 ft. will accommodate 12-16 people and the 20 ft. about 16-22 people-more if most of them are children, so I would go with the 20 ft. for 20 kids and 4 adults.

how many adults and how many children (lets say three children to one adult ratio) can play with this at one time?
adele r on Aug 31, 2011
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.
