Brand Name: Natibaby
Wrap Name: Faelinh

Reviewed by: Christi Bedell
Size of Wrap: 6
Fabric Content: 70% Cotton/30% hemp


How long has this wrap been used by you? 
Two weeks
What size is the wrapee (ex: age, height & lbs): 
2 years, 32 inches, 20 lbs and 4 years, 38 inches, 35 lbs. 
What is the thickness of this wrap (ex: thin, Med, Thick): 
Medium Thick 
Is the wrap being reviewed a reweave of another original release? If so please tell which version you have?   No 
Did/Does it have cush: 
Yes, this wrap softens quickly and is comfortable to wear, even with larger babies.
How did it feel on your shoulders: 
Faelinh felt comfortable on my shoulders even with my 35 lb, 4 year old.
How much diagonal stretch does the wrap have (ex: none- ace bandage like): 
This wrap is mildly stretchy but thicker and not as moldable as most newer Natibaby wraps I have tried. However, because it’s supportive and cushy, I would recommend it especially for larger babies and children.
How supportive did you find it in a single layer carry?
Very supportive both front and back.
How supportive did you find it in a double layer carry? 
I did not try this in a double layer carry.
Can you compare this wrap to another wrap already on the market? 
Faelinh most reminds me of Natural Hemp India made by Didymos. However, Faelinh is softer with more cush and less grip. Passes glide easily but remain in place because of the mild, but not overwhelming grip. 
Who do you think this wrap would best be geared to (ex: babies, toddlers, New Babywearers, Advanced Babywearers): 
I think this is a great wrap for larger babies and experienced wearers. I feel as though Faelinh is thicker than most wraps and may be difficult for new wearers to tigthen. I also think that it work well for larger babies. It may be overwhelming to wrap a smaller baby in such a wrap. 
Would you recommend this wrap to a friend? Why? What did you love about it? 
Yes! This wrap is very comfortable on the shoulders and incredibly supportive even in single passes with heavy toddlers and preschoolers. Though the wrap felt rough when I first received it, a quick wash and running it through sling rings for 10-15 minutes softened the wrap dramatically. It’s soft, strong, supportive and cushy with just a little grip.

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 babywearing for four years and wrapping for two years. I have tried hundreds of wraps from many companies.

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
