Kokadi Mary Poppins, Bonded Weave

Brand Name: Kokadi

Wrap Name: Mary Poppins

Reviewed by: Jenn Carter

Size of Wrap: 7

Fabric Content: 100% Cotton
Bonded Weave:
The Bonded (connected) is a brand new weave on the sling market.  
This was specially developed by Kokadi.  The benefits: Sling fabrics that overlap  The special advantage is that the woven layers are only connected to one another at the points where the patterns were woven.  




How long has this wrap been used by you?
2-3 weeks

What size is the wrappee?
18 months, 23 lbs, 33 inches.  

What is the thickness of this wrap?
medium thin wrap

Does it have cush?
Oh Yes! Completely soft and moldable. It actually took me by surprise when wearing it. For a wrap of it’s thinness I wasn’t expecting the comfort and fluffiness that I felt.

How does it feel on your shoulders?
My wrappee was in a single layer, ruck for about 10 minutes and my shoulders felt great. When I got him into a BWCC I felt as though I could have him up there for quite a while before having to change the way I was carrying him. 

How much diagonal stretch does the wrap have?
It has a good amount of stretch.

How supportive did you find it in a single layer carry?
Good support in a ruck with my 23 lb toddler.   


How supportive did you find it in a double layer carry?
We did a FWCC and a BWCC with the passes spread. He could have stayed like this for quite a while. 


Can you compare this wrap to another wrap already on the market?
My experience with wraps is pretty limited and nothing I’ve tried comes close to this wrap. It’s thin and double layered, yet only attached where the pattern is. It also allows for the “right” side to be true white and the “wrong” song to be a deep pink/burgundy color.  I love everything about this wrap. 

Who do you think this wrap would best be geared to?
 This would be a nice beginner wrap as it’s easy to tell if your passes are twisted. It’s soft enough for younger babies and supportive enough for bigger babies. 

Would you recommend this wrap to a friend? Why? What did you love about it?
Most definitely I would recommend this wrap to a friend. I love the uniqueness of the double layer and the cush when wearing. The print itself is one of the girliest prints out there and that I love! It’d look great with jeans and a t-shirt.   

Please tell us a little more about yourself:
I have been using woven wraps for about 8 months, prior to that I used a stretchy & SSC. I’m still learning my way around the world of wovens as my experience with wraps is quite limited with only about ten in my possession for any amount of time.

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.

     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
