The SILKWORM is a new version of the caterpillar bead range. With a broader, flatter and textured design, the hand crafted Silkworm will provide sensory support and enjoyment.
We have had these weighted stainless steel beads custom made for us. YOU asked...we listened... Many that love the caterpillar fidget asked for bigger, more weighted beads.
"Love this one! Thought I’d try it after losing a caterpillar. The flatter beads have a little bit of grip that makes a soft sound rolling. A nice blend of smooth and gritty. This style does so well as a pocket fidget for on the go and fits with a discreet professional grown up aesthetic. Joanne R Aug 2023"
The weighted stainless steel beads roll between fingers beautifully. Many rub the cord also. This fidget is super soft in effect. You can push your fingers in between the beads for a similar sensation to the pea popper.
It is particularly great for those that stim with fabric, Blu-Tack rollers or like low sensory input as it glides between the fingers & is very calming. It is small, discreet and quiet. It is a quiet fidget, making it ideal for the workplace, travel or the classroom.
Not suitable for 3 and under as beads can pose a choking risk
Approx. 20gms (compared to 14gms for caterpillar fidget for hand)
Made here in Melbourne by US!
These have been effective for those who
- hair twirl or pull
- suffer with trich.
- stim with fabric
- roll Blu-Tac (NOTE : SPEKS range also helpful to replace this also)
- love squishies and soft sensory input
- also wonderful for decreasing agitation for those with dementia and anxiety.
We also have this in a necklace version.
Please note they are made using cord that can frey over timesue to friction. This is wear and tear and cannot be avoided. The time this takes to occur can depend on how the fidget is used.
