What is the thickness of this wrap? I’d say this wrap is on the thinner side.

Does it have cush? This wrap is very moldable. Like putty in your hands. The passes glide ever so smoothly and fit your body like a snug, but soft, old t-shirt. It is not necessarily cushy but definitely soft and moldable.


How does it feel on your shoulders? Not at all diggy. Supportiv

How long has this wrap been used by you? 3 weeks

What size is the wrappee? 14 months, 29 in, 20lbs

What is the thickness of this wrap? Thick!
Does it have cush? Yes! Argyle is super cushy, bouncy, springy! It absorbed impact like shocks on a car. When it arrived to me it felt somewhat like a two by four in hand and I have to admit, I was quite hesitant to see its wrapping qualities. After a hot wash, tumble dry and steam iron, this baby softened up a great deal. While I still wouldn’t describe it as super moldable post-wash, it definitely relaxed enough to be deemed CUSHY! How does it feel on your shoulders? Incredibly supportive. Secure. Firm. How much diagonal stretch does the wrap have? Just a bit of stretch.

How supportive did you find it in a single layer carry? The single layer carries are where it’s at with Argyle. This puppy is supportive with a c…

A Tale of Two Giras

Brand Name: Girasol
Wrap Name: Earth Rainbow Standard Weave vs. Boy or Girl Thick Weave

What size is the wrappee? 14 months, 29 in, 20lbs

What is the thickness of this wrap?
Medium, the second was thick for a Gira
Does it have cush? I found both weaves to be really easy to wrap with, but the standard weave was not at all cushy or comfortable with my toddler. The thicker weave didn’t feel soft and moldable straight out of the bag like a typical Gira, but I had no problem wrapping tightly to my body. DS napped in a double hammock tied at shoulder for a good hour, maybe longer, and that boy did not budge. I’m talking plastered to my back solid. And he’s a wiggly toddler. I think from now on I’ll just call the thicker weave the toddler-tamer. Seriously. I think with some breaking in, this wrap could definitely be called marshmallowy soft, too.

What size is the wrappee? 23lbs, 28-19 inches, 14 months old

What were/are the exact measurements (ex: Length & Width):
(This may vary by brand as some brands prewash their tester wraps before being sent out) 
Pre-Wash: Did not have it pre-wash
Post-Wash: 190 inches, 4.8m long

27 inches wide

What is the thickness of this wrap? Medium thin

Does it have cush? Rainbow song is a solid wrap. It is on the thinner side, but has a lot of cush after a good steam iron. It easily molds to the wrapper and wrapee. How does it feel on your shoulders? I love how this wrap felt on my shoulders. It was moldable and cushy. Therefore, it was comfortable in any carry that I tried. How much diagonal stretch does the wrap have? This wrap has some stretch. I assume that the stretch has much to do with the modability. How supportive did you …

How long has this wrap been used by you? 4-5 weeks

What size is the wrappee? 23lbs, 28-19 inches, 14 months old

What is the thickness of this wrap? Thin

Does it have cush? Rainbow song is a solid wrap, but it does not have cush because it is a thin wrap. How does it feel on your shoulders? Let me start by saying I have very picky shoulders. I had a difficult time getting this wrap comfortable on my shoulders without sandwiching it. However, it felt best in a double hammock with sandwiched shoulders and doubled up chest pass.

How much diagonal stretch does the wrap have? Little to no stretch for this wrap. How supportive did you find it in a single layer carry? Ruck carry was very easy to get into place with this wrap. My little is not very heavy yet, but I assume that this single layer carry would still be very sturdy as she gains weight. How supportive did you fin…

What size is the wrappee? 4.5 months, 15 lbs 8 oz, just over 25 inches / 3.5 years, 31 pounds, 3 feet 3 inches (39 inches)

What were/are the exact measurements (ex: Length & Width): Pre-Wash: unknown Post-Wash: 4.50m, .67m(26.5 in)
What was the weight of the wrap (ex: g/m^2): Pre-Wash: 278 g/m2 from Danu Slings page Post-Wash: 345 g/m2

What is the thickness of this wrap? Medium but dense so don’t let the g/m2 scare you.

Does it have cush? It is not marshmellowy but does have cush. The density of the weave and the width of the wrap provided a cushiness. 

How does it feel on your shoulders?
Cushy with both the baby and the toddler. No diggyness at all.

How much diagonal stretch does the wrap have? Due to the high linen blend, it has very little stretch which was expected. The stretch is similar to 50% linen blends that I …

How long has this wrap been used by you? 4-5 weeks

What size is the wrappee? 23lbs, 28-19 inches, 14 months old

What is the thickness of this wrap? Thick before breaking in. After initial wash and steam iron it is medium thickness.

Does it have cush? This wrap has so much cush. It is mashmallowy and OMG that stretch! This seemed like it was going to be a very thick wrap and difficult to break in. Oh… was I wrong!!! It became floppy and molded right to me and baby with any carry we tried.

How does it feel on your shoulders? This wrap was perfect on my shoulders. It seemed as though the baby was not even on my back. The wrap appears to be beastly, but is so soft and cushy on the shoulder after a short breaking in period.

How much diagonal stretch does the wrap have? This wrap has a lot of stretch for a linen/cotton blend. It's to the wrappers advantage though. This stret…
