How to make your woven wrap soft and floppy, otherwise known as breaking it in

You just received your wrap,but it's not as soft, floppy and cuddly as you were hoping for?
Don't despair!  We'll help you get that wrap buttery soft and floppy!


Okay, how do you get it to change?
There are several tried and true methods, but the simple answer....break down the fibers by moving them.   Friction against them will wear them down.


When you first get your wrap, give it a wash and dry (following the washing instructions per blend)  This step will dramatically change the wrap right away and you'll notice that it's not as stiff.

Give it a steam iron, or two or three (depending on the fiber) Steam ironing will break the fibers down quickly.  I've also noticed that when I steam iron it width wise it helps more then when I steam iron it moving the iron from side to side. That may just be my little quirk of mine though...


Pull it through sling rings,if you have them.   If not create a loop and pull the rest of the wrap through it.



Braid it: Remember it's the act…

How to fix a pull in your woven wrap

How to fix a pull in a woven wrap
     If you are just joining us. Welcome!!! Welcome to the best blog you will ever read, (hehe). We are currently doing a blog series called "How to care and fix that woven wrap of yours".  The first post was an introduction and gave you the run down on how to care for your woven wrap. From washing to ironing.
     Our second post in this series was focused on "How to fix Thread Shifting" in a woven wrap. In that post I walked you thru both in photos and text how to treat and fix thread shifting. 
     Today we are going to focus on how to fix a pull in a woven wrap. A pull in a woven wrap is very common and to be honest so common it would be rare for someone not to have ever had one or get one during their babywearing journey. Pulls can very easily happen, anything from a broken nail to just taking it out of the package and it catching on just the right thing. Fixing a pull is a very tedious task and we are setting upon this jou…
