Here's what Kristina had to say about the wrap, after testing and photographing it:
"This wrap is *SO* supportive with my 1 year old AND my 3 year old. It has good drape and texture. It glides into place when wrapping and stays put. It pleats nicely on my shoulders and holds a half knot. It is thicker and less snuggly then Under the Sea and Morning Glory but makes up for it with it's amazing support! Don't take the thickness the wrong way....it's actually quite airy too! The weft sits slightly raised from the warp in a way that creates these air pockets.
I am pleasantly surprised by how comfy I am with my big gal up there. The colors are a bit chameleon like... sometimes the magenta in the weft pops and looks quite pink but other times it's this lovely flow of pinks, periwinkle and purples. I have never seen my girls take to a wrap so quickly. They were literally tug of warring over it earlier today. I'll just end by saying Magenta weft is magical."
This is the third release from this warp and the magenta weft combines with the blues to create a beautifully rich purple! Just like our previous releases, the thicker yarn and airy weave means that there is no "breaking in" period of trying to soften your wrap. After the first hot wash and steam iron to set the weave, your wrap will be so soft and easy to wrap with. In fact, you might just find that the rest of your family tries to swipe it for cuddling on the couch!
Please note the drastic difference in GSM between a wrap that has been pressed and hung to dry versus a wrap that has been tumbled dry on low heat. If you do not care for beastly wraps, we strongly recommend that you always hang dry your wrap.

Care: Your wrap will be shipped in loom state. It is absolutely necessary to wash and iron your wrap before using it. If you wrap with it before washing, even just briefly, you can cause thread shifting which will lead to weak spots in the cloth. The fabric needs to be washed in hot water and given a hard press to set the weave before it can bear any weight.
Instructions for the first wash:
- Wash in hot* water on delicate/gentle cycle using a detergent free of optical brighteners. Do not use bleach.
- While still damp from the wash, steam iron on low heat pressing hard to set the fibers. Make sure to iron both sides of the wrap.
- Hang to dry.
