If you do magic of any kind, you will sooner or later need to purchase several silks for your
effects. Dont use handkerchiefs as a replacement for silks. They will not work. Handkerchiefs will
not fit into a Thumb Tip and they do not work well with other magic routines. Magicians use silks
for a reason. Silks are easy to slide around and compress into a very small size. Ive use
handkerchiefs as a replacement for silks before and I know. Dont use handkerchiefs as a replacement
for silks. Buy the silks you need, they are not that expensive.
Whenever you make an order
with Penguin Magic, throw in a color silk of your choice because they are inexpensive and you will
eventually use them. If you dont have any silks you will be unable to perform some magic routines.
Keep track of the colors that you buy and over time you will have a good collection of various
colors to use in your magic.
Penguin Magics silks come in a variety of colors: Hot Pink,
Orange, Purple, Lime Green, White, Aqua, Gold, Black, Blue, Green, Yellow, and Red. The choices of
colors are a personal choice. The two most common sizes of silks used in magic are 9 and 18.
Penguin Magic sells both sizes. The 9 silks are used in Thumb Tips, for coin magic, card magic,
etc. You will use the 18 for silk magic routines and other various magic routines. Buy both sizes
of silks because you will eventually need both sizes and they are inexpensive.
mentioned that they were a bit too thin. Yes, that is true but all magic silks are thin. Magic silks
are supposed to be thin. This allows them to compress into a small size in order to fit into your
Penguin Magic sells the silks you will need in a variety of colors and in the
two most common sizes (9 and 18). Buy some silks now. I would also suggest that you purchase
several Vernet Classic Thumb Tips to use with your silks. Both are inexpensive and as always, you
get Penguin Magics free shipping.

The silk is a needed tool for the magician. I don't ever do a show without a silk in it. Why spend
time trying to cut and sew your own silks when these are so cheap and great?
construction, these silks last forever and a day!

What can I say, Gosh silks and sponges have never disappointed me yet, great quality, probably why
they go out of stock every so often, Defiantly add to cart!!
We all need silks for one thing or another. These 18" silks are a great value. They're well made and
a great purchase for $2.54. Don't just order one...get multiples because as I stated earlier, you'll
need them eventually.
These a very nice silks that are fantastic for a multitude of tricks, however if you need to conceal
a gimmick, the Vernet Mini zombie for instance, the silk will be too transparent to properly hide
things. Aside from that these are perfect and reasonably priced silks.
I'll keep it short and sweet. I almost never complain about any magic things I buy but I really am
disappointed with this silk. It's just way too transparent. I expected a higher opacity. If there is
any light behind you AT ALL or a bright light shining on it (so, in other words, any light at all)
you can pretty much see straight through it. Not really what one would hope for in a silk. The worst
thing is that I bought 2 of these bad boys.
It is a great silk! I love the price and I love the silk. I use it with my Silk to Egg routine & am
very happy with it!
This is not bad quality for the money. Every magician should own a collection of silks. You can
perform many different miracles with a prop that pack small and plays big.
What a bargain! This is a good quality silk and is perfect for any number of routines- sly silks,
vanishing and appearing birds or candles, coin through silk etc. Cannot recommend these silks
