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 was awesome in a ruck. No need to double knot. It still felt cushy with my squirmy toddler. He was able to pop the seat, though! Stinker.

How supportive did you find it in a double layer carry?
Very, very supportive!! I nursed in a poppins and then switched him to my back in a DH. He was snoozing immediately. I was in smooshy-fluffy-sleepy baby love with Autumn Blaze at this moment. Then I got to looking at my dirty nasty rugs and OCD Sara took over. I literally steam cleaned my rugs - on my hands and knees - for close to TWO hours while wearing Autumn Blaze. I am not going to lie - it was a bit warm - but seriously, soooo comfortable. LO did not budge! Shoulders did not fall! Seat did not pop! And it felt supportive the whole time. Now I am not saying that buying this wrap will make you steam clean your carpets. But if you wanted to, you could.




Can you compare this wrap to another wrap already on the market?
Its hard for me to compare, since this is my first crack at a woolie. If I had to though, I would say that Autumn Blaze is the love child of Natibaby’s silks and linen blends. It has that rock solid support that linen provides, but with a melt in your hand softless that silk offers.

Who do you think this wrap would best be geared to?
Anyone and everyone can love this wrap. Its not too heavy for a squish… and totally strong enough for toddlers. It is very easy to wrap with and has an interestingly beautiful weave that all babywearers will appreciate.











Would you recommend this wrap to a friend? Why? What did you love about it?
I absolutely loved the comfort of this wrap. I was expecting wool to feel scratchy and it is the absolute opposite. It is warm and soft and so, so lovely. The color is breathtaking. I do not typically gravitate towards reds and even I could appreciate the fierceness of this red. It shines in certain lights and just blazes red in others. It’s the kind of wrap that makes you want to go put on red lipstick and black stilettos. But you settle for tinted chapstick instead because let’s face it - you’re a mom.

Please tell us a little more about yourself:
I have only been babywearing for a year. I started with my son, Cameron the day we came home from the hospital. I am a SAHM mom so I wear VERY often. I also nanny for two other babies. Another toddler and a squish. So someone is always strapped to me. I would say I’ve probably sampled around 40-50 wraps. I’ve just fallen in love with the whole world. Down the rabbit hole I go!
