Wrap Name: Nautical Two Colored and Tri-Weave Versions

Reviewed by: Katy Meyer
Size of Wrap: 6
Fabric Content: 70% Cotton, 30% Linen




How long has this wrap been used by you? about a month

What size is the wrappee? Primary wrapee is 16 months, 22lb and 30 inches.  I also used it a bit with my 3 year old, 35 lb.  

What is the thickness of this wrap? Dual and Tri-Weave are both medium thickness, with the tri colored being thicker.

Does it have cush? Dual colored has a bit of cush.  Enough to make it feel squishy, but not an overwhelming amount.  The Tri-Weave doesn't feel like it has cush.  
How does it feel on your shoulders? The dual colored felt nice and comfortable.  It was squishy and very soft.  I felt like I could be a little more lax with how I passed it over my shoulders because the cush was forgiving.  
The Tri-Weave was still comfortable but a bit tougher on my shoulders.  Because of the crisp feel linen, I had to be more careful about how I wrapped with it.

How long has this wrap been used by you? a little over a month

What size is the wrappee? I've used it to wrap my 5 1/2 year old (40lbs) as well as my cousin's baby (roughly 20 lbs)

What is the thickness of this wrap? Thin  

Does it have cush? no it's flat and does not have cush.  But because of how wide this wrap is (it's very wide, which was great with my big kid!), it allows for a cushy feeling on your shoulders when bunched. 
How does it feel on your shoulders? My shoulders felt really good.  This wrap doesn't have a lot of give to it, so once you wrap it holds the carry in place well so there wasn't any sag pulling my shoulders.  

How much diagonal stretch does the wrap have? there's a little diagonal stretch to it, just enough to allow for a wrap that molds into your carry easily.
How supportive did you find it in a single layer carry? I only used it …

What size is the wrappee? 14 months, 21 lb. 2 yr 10 months, 34 lb.


What were/are the exact measurement (ex; Length & width): 
Post-Wash:  width- 32 in. Length- 4.44 meters.
What is the thickness of this wrap? Thin  

Does it have cush? I wouldn't say it has cush.  
How does it feel on your shoulders? It felt nice, pretty comfortable overall.  Although because of its thinness, I had to be pretty particular of how I passed over my shoulders.  It felt better gathered instead of rolled with ruck straps for me.  It did get diggy with my 2.5 year old.  

How much diagonal stretch does the wrap have? None
How supportive did you find it in a single layer carry? It felt quite supportive. And surprisingly so, given its thinness.  It was even alright with my bigger kid.  Although more comfortable with my smaller baby. .

What size is the wrappee? 21 months old, 32 inches, 20 pounds

What is the thickness of this wrap? This wrap is a medium weight wrap.
