Firespiral Slings - Heath Glasto Kaleidoscope Woven Wrap

$ 105.00

Released May 26th 2016

100% combed cotton, Alchemy Weave, Medium Weight

Brown can often be relegated to the ‘autumn’ box of colours, but actually it can be incredibly summery. We’ve gone for a cool shade reminiscent of the dry bare earth underneath tree canopies and the dancing heads of ribwort flowers under hawthorn hedges. It helps to bring out the blue tones in the Glasto warp. This wrap is woven using our oh so soft and cushy Alchemy weave, and is soft enough from new to carry a delicate newborn in comfort, and strong enough to comfortably support the weight of a toddler. This is a medium weight wrap at approximately 240 gsm.

About the Cloth

There may be slight variances in the thickness of natural fibres, little ‘nubs’ slubs or inclusions. These are just like birthmarks, and we sometimes use a purposefully slubby yarn for added texture in the cloth. You may notice a small joining knot where the end of one thread cone has been fastened to the start of the next. Some yarns may initially shed some loose fibres during the ‘breaking in’ process but these will disappear in time. Our  loose and open weave shows the yarns in more of their natural state, rather than their appearance/texture being disguised by lots of tight crossovers between warp and weft.

**Please note that these wraps are 'loom state' and will require washing before first wear. This first wash will set the weave, fluff up the cotton and clean out dust that has accumulated during weaving and hemming, so is an essential part of the process
