Available Ring Colors
All rings are purchased from slingrings.com, and available colors are pictured here.
Slings are cut to allow for 8% shrinkage. The size lengths listed below indicate the length after washing and/or drying.
If you are unsure on which size ring sling to select, the general guideline is to select your t-shirt size. However, if you have a large chest or are carrying an older child you may want to go up one size. You will also want to consider how far down you would like the tail of your sling to hang. Some folks prefer it to be quite long, so they can use it to cover baby's head when sleeping or nursing. And other folks prefer it to be shorter, coming just to the wearer's hip. Feel free to contact us if you'd like help figuring out which size to purchase!
If you usually hold baby on your left hip, then you’ll wear your rings on your right shoulder.

Most of our fabric is woven with a gradient, where each rail (a term for the hem along the length of the carrier) is a different color. As you customize your sling, you get to pick which colored rail is closest to your face when wearing it on your preferred shoulder.
For example, this photo of Prism (Charcoal) shows the fabric oriented with the red rail up:

Our slings are converted with a gathered shoulder, with 7" from seam to rings.
The pattern is carefully aligned and neatly sewn so the sling can be worn inside-out to allow for either rail to be worn facing up. This photo of Dreamer Twill (Silver Linen) shows the visible seam when worn inside-out.
