What am I looking for in a playsilk?

I've seen some pretty pictures of playsilks and some people raving about them, you have me interested! I'm thinking of getting one for DD, what size should I get (she's only 15 months, but I want her to use it for a long time), what type of playsilk, what should I be looking for? Thanks!

I have looked at these and I do not see the big deal about them. you can easily go down to a store and buy silk and make them yourself. Cut the fabric of silk and do a trim on the edges. There you go you got your own playsilk.

Aren't playsilks kind of see throughish? I wonder if I could find silk like that at the store? Silk is kind of hard to sew on... hm. There are some really gorgeous ones by colorfarm I think is that name? on HC. Maybe Grandma will get us one, lol.

It doesn't matter. Kids love them because they make great imaginary play. Ours have been forts, hats, hair, capes, blankets, pretty much anything. They are the first thing all the cousins and friends grab when they come over. Kids love all sizes, colors, and shapes.

I'm very intrigued - can you just buy a big scarf, or use one you already have?
