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 much diagonal stretch does the wrap have?
Each one has a slight bit of stretch, with the dual having more than the tri

How supportive did you find it in a single layer carry?
Tri-Weave was very supportive in a single layer carry.  Dual was a bit less supportive but still very comfortable in a single layer carry.    


How supportive did you find it in a double layer carry?
The tri-weave was extremely supportive in a double layer carry.  I wore my 20 lb daughter in a back wrap cross carry for a long time.  The dual colored was equally as supportive in a double layer carry.    


Can you compare this wrap to another wrap already on the market?
I don't have a lot of experience with linen wraps, but I would say that they are more supportive than my cotton Gira, especially with my 3 year old.  

Who do you think this wrap would best be geared to?
I wouldn't necessarily recommend the tri-weave for new wearers or little babies.  Because of the bulk of the wrap, I think it might be a difficult way to start out.  The two colored however, would be a great wrap for a beginning wrapper.  It was a little bit easier to wrap with.  

Would you recommend this wrap to a friend? Why? What did you love about it?
Yes, I would recommend both for different reasons.  The tri would be great for an older baby or toddler because of its supportiveness.  I would recommend the two colored for a less experienced wrapper or maybe someone with a newer baby.  

Please tell us a little more about yourself:
I am currently a VBE for BWI of North Central Illinois.  I've been wearing for about 3 years, wrapping for about a year and a half after my second was born.  I tend to prefer cotton wraps, but have ventured into trying other blends more recently, hence trying out linen.

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
