Does it have cush? Being all cotton this wrap has some moldability. It is thin but wide and the width layered on my shoulders gave me some cushiness.

How does it feel on your shoulders?
I was comfortable and I did not feel any diggyness with the baby or the toddler on my shoulders. How much diagonal stretch does the wrap have? There is a little diagonal stretch to this all cotton wrap but the weave is not too stretchy. I did not have any problems with it sagging either.

How supportive did you find …

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…

Breaking in a woven wrap

You just received your wrap,
but it's not as soft, floppy and cuddly as you were hoping for? Don't despair!
I remember when I purchased my first woven wrap years ago, after wrapping with a Moby for awhile.  I was a bit shocked at how crunchy and stiff it was.  I almost gave up on wrapping, thinking that it wasn't for me (lol, imagine that!)  At the time, I had no wrapper friends locally so I'd never felt what a woven wrap was supposed to feel like and I was disappointed to be quite honest.  Long story short, I sold that woven and purchased an old used Didymos Paul.  It was love at first feel!  Paul was everything I dreamt woven wraps would be, moldable, cuddly and soft like a baby blanket.

I started purchasing other wovens and found that I really enjoyed the "breaking in" process of it.  It's interesting to see how the fibers and the tactile of the threads change throughout time.

Okay, but how do you get it to change?
There are several tried and true meth…

What size is the wrappee? 23lbs, 29 inches, 14 months old


What is the thickness of this wrap? Medium thin

Does it have cush? Believe it or not this wrap is cushy and soft. It molds so nicely to the wrapper and baby. Not to mention how solid this wrap it. It’s not marshmalloy or pillowy, but when doubled over it’s very nice on the shoulders.

How does it feel on your shoulders? This was very nice and flat on my shoulders due to the thin nature. It was easily spread out or doubled over while wrapping.

How much diagonal stretch does the wrap have? Milori does not have a lot of stretch, but I would assume with some more time to break in it might develop more stretch over time. It’s more like a pair of soft all cotton pajamas. The more it’s worn the more it will break down and soften up. I …
