Reviewed by: Sara Stephenson

Size of Wrap: 6

Fabric Content: 70% Cotton, 30% Hemp

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

What size is the wrappee?
21 months, 35 lbs, 34 inches tall

What is the thickness of this wrap?
I would say medium to thin.

Does it have cush?
The cotton is soft to the touch but the hemp is more dense feeling. It molds really well to my child and has just the right amount of cush for me. 

How does it feel on your shoulders?
A single layer on my shoulder wasn’t as comfortable for me. 

How much diagonal stretch does the wrap have?
It has enough diagonal stretch to make it mold really well to my child. 

How supportive did you find it in a single layer carry?
It was amazingly supportive in a simple ruck as long as care is taken to properly tighten rail to rail. Otherwise, it can get a little diggy on the shoulders, but I have really particular shoulders. 

How supportive did you find it in a double layer carry?
Extremely supportive in a double layer carry! My 35 lb child doesn't get worn in a FWCC often because he’s so heavy but I wore him for quite awhile in this and had no complaints! 

Can you compare this wrap to another wrap already on the market?
It felt similar to my cotton/linen blend natibaby wraps yet more supportive. 

Who do you think this wrap would best be geared to?
I would say this would be geared more towards toddlers because it is so supportive, yet would still be amazing for a baby too because it is so moldable. 

Would you recommend this wrap to a friend? Why? What did you love about it?
Yes for sure. The color is beautiful, the wrap is supportive, and it can take a beating, so it would be great for an all day outing somewhere. No need to baby this! 

Please tell us a little more about yourself:
I have been wearing for almost 4 years. I am a VBE for the Chicagoland chapter of BWI. I have two children, an almost 4 yr old and my almost 2 yr old. I have tried close to 200 different wraps I think, I have never sat down to count them ;)

How to fix a pull in a woven wrap

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
