How to wash a wool woven wrap.

Wool wraps have become some of my favorite to use throughout the years.   For a long time, I was scared of wool and wasn't sure how to care for it.  Once I realized that it really wasn't hard to wash the wool wraps, I jump right on into that rabbit hole and I'm so thankful that I did! We hope you enjoy this step by step picture tutorial and enjoy wrapping your little one in the softest, cushiest woven wrap blend.

It is the third version of Natibaby’s Exclusive Marsupial Mamas design. I have also tried both Autumn Blaze (50% Wool) and Cherry Tree (60% Linen).
Does it have cush? If anything is going to make you love Winter is it this wrap! Winter Elm is incredibly moldable, fluffy and so easy to wrap with. I was pleasantly surprised! In hand, my first opinion was that it felt stiff. I did not expect it be be so comfy when wrapping!

What size is the wrappee? 15 months, 30 in, 20lbs

What is the thickness of this wrap? Thick
Does it have cush? Look up cush in the dictionary - it probably says Autumn Blaze. This is the cushiest wrap I have ever wrapped with! Marshmallowy soft. Super moldable! Nice grip! How does it feel on your shoulders? At first wrap I had a difficult time with the shoulders. There seemed to be so much fabric I just couldn’t get it to sit comfortably. The wrap kept slipping off my shoulders. Then I tried sandwiching and it did a world of difference! It folded beautifully and felt so comfortable. Perfect weight distribution. Awesomely fluffy! How much diagonal stretch does the wrap have? I would classify this wrap as medium stretchiness.
How supportive did you find it in a single layer carry? Autumn Blaze is totally supportive in a single layer carry. The grip…
