Yep, I’m an aerialist who also does self-suspension/rigging. Love mixing fabric and rope for a zen affect. Nice to cradled the head in a fabric cocoon or drap the material over the suspended person. I also like having a hammock of aerial silk to facilitate staying airborn for dupe rational periods and the diversity of textures etc. I recommend at least 7 yards of fabric. I got 5 yards and found it slightly on the short side. Have fun!
I’ll also add that I use both polyester and tricot fabrics and much prefer the tricot. It’s slippery cool, and if you are buying from FabricDepo in Texas, the cuts are very wide so you have a lot of fabric to play with. It’s also slight transparent which is beautiful.
