Two weeks in Italy, 2000 pictures ( 600 + with a wrap / carrier) and many happy memories….

I will be writing more about our trip in another blogpost, but first I wanted to list the wraps and carriers here.

As I’ve driven to Italy with my car and had enough room to bring many wraps along I didn’t have to make a smaller selection. I wanted to bring some short(er) wraps (size 3) as well as some exciting blends (seacell , tencel…) to see how good they do in higher temperatures.

I also brought a ringsling along which I’ve used during our stops on our roadtrip ūüôā

Even with higher temperatures I prefer a multi-layer carry (babywearing is sweaty anyway, I’d rather be sweaty and comfortable)

I can’t even decide which wrap is my favorite…..

 

Wraps:

Lovaloom Petalon Go Bananas
Blend: 25% Pima cotton, 18% linen, 48% viscose, 9% Sea Cell 305gsm

Great shorty, nice blend. Not too grippy, soft and mouldable, perfect for higher temperatures.

Meeyoo Lou Lou shorty (3m) 
Easy to wrap with, not very cushy but it’s still my favorite shorty!

Vatanai Pamir tester (with seacell)
Mr. P seems to be a babywearing legend. Something you only see in secret facebook groups, hard to find… and the new blend is very exciting (allthough I loved the high silk Pamirs too!)
The perfect neutral, a bit more ‘cream’ (or ‘yellow’) than other Pamir’s I’ve seen.

Hubertine Divine Joséphine B.
69% combed cotton 21% supima 10% linen 330 gsm
Perfect summer blend. Needs some breaking in, but even brand-new it’s not hard to wrap with.
My first experience with Hubertine. Great toddler wrap !

Lollik Vinger Harbinger of Spring
cotton 71%, merino 29%
360 g/m2
Soft, woolie, nice pattern! I love merino in summer!

Solnce Phases Bora Bora
58% Egyptian cotton, 29% Supima cotton, 13% seaweed, 295 gr/m2
The perfect blend in a great (very comfortable) weave. Pretty colours!
Nice shorty but I could imagine this to work well in a long size too, for pretty finishes!

 

Wildbird ringsling
Linen
Toddlerworthy, airy, comfortable!

Tula Woven Migaloo Happy

Tencel/cotton!
I love tencel for hot days! bright colours, nice design and soft from the start. It’s easy to wrap with, toddlerworthy but also suitable for a newborn. I love it!

Beloved Slings Sweet Tweet

100% combed cotton, 270 gsm
Easy to wrap with, soft straight from the bag.

Linuschka Ipomee Pink Paradise
38% organic super combed cotton 26% Egyptian long staples cotton 18% seacell 18% supima
320 g/m2
I love Linuschka wraps for a heavy toddler. This one is very cushy, doesn’t feel hot and offers great support.
Chunky, thick knot but has a nice grip so a half knot might work good enough too.

Agossie¬†¬†Hilda’s Orchid
100% cotton (34% organic cotton 66% mercerised Egyptian cotton). Gsm ca. 280.

My second Agossie wrap. Easy to wrap with, perfect for both a newborn and a toddler. A slight shine, stunning blue and makes a smooth chestpass without any effort!

Meeyoo Koru
Handwoven dream. Perfection has a name ūüėČ

Ankalia quarry citrine
30% tencel  70% cotton
Perfect summer blend. The pattern has a nice grip and texture. I would say it works great as a shorty!

Luluna Slings Geo Fly
100% combed cotton Approx. 260gsm
Easycare, I’ve used it with both Alice (4) and Emile. Not very cushy, but I’ve worn Emile on a long hike in a multi-layer carry and it didn’t dig in my shoulders.

Artipoppe Supernova Vincent
Great shorty, stunning blue! Not the most supportive wrap, but perfect for the RRR!

Linuschka Boutons Fairy Confetti
40% organic super combed cotton 25% egyptian long staples GIZA cotton 35% double twisted japanese silk
390 g/m²
Needs some breaking in…. Perfect toddler wrap, but I wouldn’t recommend it for a newborn. I love the grip of the silk. The boutons design makes one side very soft whilst the other is (very) grippy.

Hubertine Flora Rêverie 
100% combed cotton Oeko-tex certified 305 gsm
Easycare. Intricate pattern, beautiful colour combination of a soft mintgreen and champagne. Perfect for summer!

Oscha Cairis РRoses Candyfloss 

72% organic combed cotton, 28% Ice cotton
186gr/m²
Love these colours! and despite the low gsm it’s very comfortable!

 

Sjala Rowan Dusk
90% cotton 7% linen 5% cashmere
Toddlerworthy, perfect for a single layer carry and stunning pink!

POP by Artipoppe

Aloe slings
The double waistbelt is very comfortable! so many loving details I don’t even know where to start.

 

 

London Sling Company Voronoi Dunaway
cotton 80%, cashmere 20%
305 g/m2

Smooth wrapjob, soft cashmere.. This wrap already came along last year on our holiday to Italy. Perfect as a rucksack wrap!

  1. I live near Pietrasanta, it was a shame not to see us even just for exchanging greetings or drinking an aperitif … a big hug Veronica see you
