Is the wrap being reviewed a reweave of another original release? If so please tell which version you have?

This is a standard line wrap


Does it have cush?
It is so beautifully cushy! I want a blanket made out of it. It is perfectly soft and cushy for my newborn and also has enough cush to be comfortable on my shoulders when wearing my older kids. It molds really well around all of my children.

How does it feel on your shoulders?
 It felt marvelous on my shoulders thanks to the cushiness. I really loved this wrap.

How much diagonal stretch does the wrap have?
It has enough diagonal stretch to make it mold really well to my child but not too much to make it saggy for the older kids. Can you tell I'm smitten with this wrap?

How supportive did you find it in a single layer carry?
I tried both a kangaroo carry with the newborn and a ruck with the older kids and both were very comfortable and supportive.


How supportive did you find it in a double layer carry?
It couldn't have been more perfect in a double layer carry! It was easy to tighten too. It slid nicely while tightening but then stayed solid once in place.

Can you compare this wrap to another wrap already on the market?
It reminds me of a well loved girasol or storch leo. Perfectly soft, comfortable, and moldable.

Who do you think this wrap would best be geared to?
I would say this would be perfect for everyone. It wraps easily and is comfortable which makes it perfect for new babywearers. It was also supportive with all three of my kids of varying ages. It has a price that can't be beat too!



Would you recommend this wrap to a friend? Why? What did you love about it?
Yes for sure. The color is beautiful, the wrap is supportive, and because it is all cotton, I don't feel the need to baby it at all, so it would be great for an all day outing somewhere. I've been showing it to everyone the past few weeks and they have all loved it! I'm definitely going to recommend this brand to everyone looking to try out a new brand.


Please tell us a little more about yourself:
I have been wearing for almost 5 years. I am a trained CBWS (Center for Babywearing Studies) consultant and am a VBE (Volunteer Babywearing Educator) and the President of Babywearing International of Chicagoland. I have three children: an almost 5 yr old, an almost 3 yr old, and a 2 month old.

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.

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
