Reviewed by: Sarah Montgomery

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

What size is the wrapee (ex: age, height & lbs):
20 months, 30 inches tall, 24lbs

What were/are the exact measurements (ex: Length & Width):
4.3 meters long, 27” wide

What is the thickness of this wrap (ex: thin, Med, Thick): 
Medium thickness

Did/Does it have cush:
(The Definition of Cush varies but could be described as marshmellowyness, soft, moldable, comfortable, ability to adapt to your body)
It was very moldable and easy to wrap with, very soft to the touch.

How did it feel on your shoulders: 
Comfortable, not diggy at all even with a sloppy wrap job, It is a bit slippery in a Ruck unless you make sure to twist then shoulders well.
How much diagonal stretch does the wrap have (ex: none- ace bandage like): 
Some diagonal stretch.

How supportive did you find it in a single layer carry? 
It was supportive and comfortable for a single layer carry. I used it in a Ruck for about 30 minutes at a time and found it very comfy.

How supportive did you find it in a double layer carry? 
It was very supportive in a double layer carry. Wearing my daughter while shopping she felt very light. I did again find the fabric to be more on the slippery side and needed to make sure my passes and knots were very tight.

Who do you think this wrap would best be geared to (ex: babies, toddlers, New Babywearers, Advanced Babywearers): 
I think this wrap would be good for semi-experienced wearers. I think it would be fine for either babies or toddlers. I think it would be a great wrap for someone just starting out with back wrapping as I found it especially easy to get a seat with and it is also easy to slide the passes when doing multiple layers. I think it might be a challenging wrap for a brand new wrapper to learn to tighten with though.

Would you recommend this wrap to a friend? Why? What did you love about it?
I would recommend this to someone who wanted a supportive and soft blend that is easy to wrap with. It knots a little on the thicker side and is a bit slipper for tightening knots. But I loved how easy I found getting a seat to be in it and I felt like it molded well to my daughter so it was harder for her to pop the seat once she was in.


Please tell us a little more about yourself (ex: how long have you been wearing, how many different wraps have you tried, what is your babywearing background): 
I have been wearing for almost 2 years, and have tried several different wraps in that time period. I am a Volunteer Babywearing Education with BWI of North Central Illinois and help teach babywearing at 1-2 meetings per month.

How to fix a broken thread in your woven wrap:

If you have been following along with our series of  "How to care for your woven wrap" you will see that we are working our way down the list of common issues with woven wraps and the care for them. I hope that these have helped you along your way, and in your ownership of a woven wrap. This blog post will show you how to fix that dreaded and all too common broken thread, that so many fear.

I will tell you later what would be a problem with broken threads in a woven wrap and what to look for.


Ok, let's get started. First, grab your woven wrap and let's figure out what type of broken thread you're dealing with. Do you have two threads visible? If so, follow the first set of directions. This is a full broken thread and should be tied back together with one another. These threads will go tow…

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…

How to Fix Thread Shifting in a Woven Wrap


     Thread shifting is where an area of the thread "shifts". This can make a weak spot in the wrap or can create a gap. Thread shifting is very common in thinner wraps or wraps that have a loose weave. And it can also be done by holding your wrap too hard while wrapping or tugging on your wrap. Thread shifting is fixable.
The following picture shows thread shifting in a woven wrap.




1) Take a sewing needle and use it to gently slide the threads straight back in their correct lines, gently pulling diagonally to edge them back in straight.  You will follow the line pattern of the rest of the wrap and will be able to tell when they are in their correct spot.




This is what it should look like when done. You will want to get those threads as close to each other as you can:




2) Follow up with a warm wash. This will tighten the fibers of the thread back up.

3) Tumble dry (if blend allows)if not then please skip this.
4) Iron
