Ok, I'm a-checkin' out Dharma Trading, thinking of ordering some silk to make playsilks for Talia. Can anybody recommend which weight of habotai would be appropriate? I don't have any silk swatches handy to compare them. My guess is that 5mm would be right, but I wanted to make sure it's sturdy enough to put up with abuse by toddlers...<br><br>
Thank you!

I think 8mm is what a lot of people use. Here's another source for them:<br><br><a href="http://www.thaisilks.com/store/merchant.mv?Screen=CTGY&Store_Code=TS&Category_Code=3010" target="_blank">Thai Silks</a>

Cool, thanks! Another question: I know that "china silk" means polyester when you're talking wedding gown fabrics. I'm guessing that this is real silk, and the phrase "china silk" is just unfortunate... but I wanted to make sure <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">
