Kick Provence Baby Wrap

Our chrysanthemum pattern in gentle blossom hues and soft ecru. Woven specially for those who want the coolest, softest sling this summer and in the heat. This soft, open weave is also perfect for those who love a thin wrap for its ease of use. 

Ice cotton utilises advanced spinning technology to create very long, twisted fibres; making the fabric feel fresh, light and breathable. It is made from naturally grown Supima cotton, with no synthetic fibers, and is free from harmful chemicals. Supima cotton is the finest American Pima cotton, its fineness and longer staple makes luxurious, strong and durable fabrics.

28% Ice Cotton, 72% organic combed cotton, approx 187gsm.

*Please note that some thread shifting is to be expected as part of the character of this weave, it does not affect the integrity of the product. Ensure you wash before use to tighten the weave.

 

Washing


Our cotton, linen, hemp and bamboo only needs to be washed at 30 degrees. We don’t recommend bleach as it can damage fabric.

Do not use fabric softener with your slings - it reduces the life of the fabric and makes it lose grip.

It is recommended to put ring slings inside a pillow cover when washing so the rings don’t get damaged.

Tumble drying


We do not recommend tumble drying in our washing instructions as it decreases the life of any fabric. Having said that, running it on a low temperature can help soften and ‘break in’ your sling. Do not tumble dry bamboo.

Ironing


It is a good idea to steam iron your cotton and linen slings after washing. Not only does it make them pretty and help to soften the fabric but it avoids the fabric creasing along the same lines repeatedly, which can lead to wear.

Try not to let linen dry completely if you are going to iron – linen is much easier to iron whilst damp. If you dry linen completely in the tumble dryer it may appear to have drastically shrunk. The fibres have just been compacted together and will return to normal after a quick press with an iron (and a spray of water). Using your sling will also stretch it back out again.

Silk, Wool, Cashmere


We recommend hand washing these fabrics. Run some lukewarm water into a bath or sink, add some suitable wool/silk/cashmere soap and place your sling in the water. Let it sit for a while, gently agitating the wrap, then rinse. Gently squeeze off any excess water (without wringing), roll in towels and step on it to dry further. For silk wraps, without wool in them, you can use the silk or hand wash setting on your washing machine if it has one, otherwise, hand wash. Wool and cashmere should be laid flat to dry. You should avoid drying silk in direct sunlight. They can be ironed on a very cool setting.
