Crystal Vibes Crystal Singing Bowl Nesting Sleeves are designed to work with our Crystal Vibes Gemstone Fusion, Empryean, and frosted bowls, as well as our Himalayan metal bowls. Crystal bowl nesting sleeves create a padded layer of protection that will allow you to safely nest crystal bowls with a 2" size difference within one another for transport or shipping. These sleeves are made to fit inside our padded carrying cases as well. Nesting sleeves by Crystal Vibes have no strap handle, rather they are designed to be taller than the bowl to fold over and protect the rim on both the inside and outside of your crystal bowls. Size is based on the diameter of the bowl. The height of the bowl will determine the amount of coverage provided by the foldover of the sleeve.
This is a fitted product. This sleeve is designed to fit the size indicated in the title and description. The sleeve will not stretch to accommodate a larger size. Sleeves are sold both individually and as sets to pair with your nesting set so you can select the option that fits your need. If you have a 6" bowl you will need a 6" sleeve. A bowl that is 9" in diameter will require a 9" sleeve to fit snugly.
These sleeves are made with premium Neoprene lined and sealed inside and out to prevent wear. They also feature a nylon finish at the top border and around the handles for increased durability. The sleeves are double stitched to create an incredibly well built sleeve.
Approximate size and weight for each individual sleeve follows:
Material thickness: 2.8 mm
6" size: 6" diameter and 12" height
7" size: 7" diameter and 12.75" height
8" size: 8" diameter and 13.5" height
9" size: 9" diameter and 14.25" height
10" size: 10" diameter and 14.75" height
11" size: 11" diameter and 15" height
12" size: 12" diameter and 16" height
13" size: 13" diameter and 16.5" height
14" size: 14" diameter and 18" height
We wanted the sleeves to be taller than the bowls so you can fold them over and protect the rims of your bowls. This height of sleeve will work for most bowls. The sleeves are not made to accommodate the length of the handle of our practitioner handle bowls. The sleeves will work with appropriately sized featherlight, opaque and clear bowls. These sleeves are also a great solution for protecting metal bowls without having a bulky case.
Nesting crystal bowls is always done with a 2" difference in size to accommodate the padding from the sleeves of both bowls. An 8" bowl inside of a 10" bowl, inside of a 12" bowl is a perfect and compact stack that can easily be transported in one of our 9-12" cases. An 8-14" seven bowl nesting set can be transported in two 13-16" cases by nesting the 8", 10", 12" and 14" in one case and the 9", 11", and 13" in the second. The same set can be broken into three cases for a lighter load on the person transporting the bowls. In this instance you would pack the 12" and 14" bowls in a 13-16" case, the 9", 11" and 13" bowl in a second 13-16" case and the 8" and 10" bowl in a 9-12" case.
Sleeves are sold individually and as sets. A 7-bowl 8-14" set will include one sleeve for each bowl in the set (8",9",10",11" 12", 13", and 14" sleeves).
