Toto Kikoy Olpejeta Review

Brand Name: Toto Wrap

Wrap Name: Kikoy Olpejeta

Reviewed by: Tabitha Goins

Size of Wrap: 6

Fabric Content: 100% Cotton









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 in a ruck with my 5 1/2 year old for about 20 mins, and I found it supportive.

How supportive did you find it in a double layer carry?
It felt great in a double layer carry.  This wrap is thin and breathable, so it was nice in a multi layered carry to not feel like there was a ton of heavy fabric on either of us.

Who do you think this wrap would best be geared to?
I think this wrap is perfect for any caregiver in a warmer climate, or one that gets hot easily.  It's also one that makes for a great work horse wrap....take it to the beach, park, etc.  It's an easy to care for wrap, that because of the tight weave you really won't have to worry about any pulls.

Can you compare this wrap to another wrap already on the market?
It feels similar to the Hoppediz Light wraps, although I found the Toto Wrap softer.

Would you recommend this wrap to a friend? Why? What did you love about it?
Yes, I definitely would recommend the Toto Wrap.  They seem durable, are soft, wrap easy and for the price point this makes for a great wrap for all!   The colorways are beautiful too!

Please tell us a little more about yourself:
I am a Master Babywearing Educator and President of BWI of North Central Illinois.  I have been using wovens for over 5 years.  Even at 5 years old, my son still asks to get wrapped.  He still looks at it as a source of comfort and happiness!  I have wrapped with almost every brand and blend that's out there.  I love to geek out over the different colors, blends, textures, and designs.

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
