How long has this wrap been used by you?
One week

What size is the wrappee?
8 months, 25 inches, 19 lbs

What is the thickness of this wrap?
I've felt thinner, but it is not quite medium.

Does it have cush?
It does!  It molds perfectly to my body and feels extremely comfortable on me from all angles.

How does it feel on your shoulders?
It was very comfortable, and not diggy at all.  I can imagine it feeling a little diggy if she were maybe 10lbs heavier.

How much diagonal stretch does the wrap have?
It has a great amount of stretch!  Not ace-bandage like, but close.

How supportive did you find it in a single layer carry?
I found it to be more supportive than I expected!  I could comfortably do a front wrap cross carry tied under bum and felt certain that Maxine wouldn't be able to bend back out of it.  

How supportive did you find it in a double layer carry?
Extremely supportive!  I did a double hammock tied at my shoulder and not only did my daughter feel weightless, I knew that she was not going to budge.


Can you compare this wrap to another wrap already on the market?
I'd compare this to Didymos Iris.  It is easy to wrap with and I could see a new wrapper using this easily, especially since the rails are different colors.


Who do you think this wrap would best be geared to?
I think this wrap is best for babies and new babywearers, though an advanced babywearer would love it just as much.

Would you recommend this wrap to a friend? Why? What did you love about it?
I would definitely recommend this wrap to a friend.  It is very easy to wrap with and it is so beautiful!  The pattern made me fall in love with floral wraps and I hope that Didymos releases this in multiple colors.  I cannot stop raving about this wrap.


Please tell us a little more about yourself:
I'm a 26 year old college student and first time mom.  I've been babywearing for 8 months since my daughter was born.  I have tried over a dozen wraps and counting.  I am used to many babywearing carriers and slings, but my strongest point is ring slings.  Babywearing is a huge passion of mine!

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.

     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
