How to fix a Broken Thread in your woven wrap.

How to fix a broken thread in your woven wrap:

If you have been following along with our series of  "How to care for your woven wrap" you will see that we are working our way down the list of common issues with woven wraps and the care for them. I hope that these have helped you along your way, and in your ownership of a woven wrap. This blog post will show you how to fix that dreaded and all too common broken thread, that so many fear. Please do not fear a broken thread!  One broken thread (even two or three) will not hurt you, your baby or the safety of the wrap. I will tell you later what would be a problem with broken threads in a woven wrap and what to look for.


Ok, let's get started. First, grab your woven wrap and let's figure out what type of broken thread you're dealing with. Do you have two threads visible? If so, follow the first set of directions. This is a full broken thread and should be tied back together with one another. These threads will go tow…

How to fix a pull in your woven wrap

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.

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

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
