Cool to wear, and perfect for all climates, linen is also easy to care for and becomes softer and stronger over time.
All Sakura Bloom slings are machine washable in cold water on a gentle cycle, fully reversible, designed to fit all body shapes and sizes, and easy to use with newborns and toddlers. Each comes with a detailed booklet with instructions, tips, and many photos. Whether a special treat for yourself or a gift for a friend or loved one, each of our slings is beautifully packaged and sent with care.
Sakura Bloom's Linen is amazing in its own right. Linen is naturally antibacterial with a built-in wicking property to it, so is fantastic for hot climates where baby might be sweating. It will wick moisture away from the baby and then dry quickly on it own keeping you both comfortable. Linen is made from Flax which is one of the world’s strongest natural fibers. Flax is 5 times stronger than cotton! Sakura Bloom linen slings breathe beautifully, keeping you warm in the winter and cool in the summer.
Wash it in cold water on the gentle cycle. Hang it to dry and steam iron it if you like. The silk will lose a bit of its sheen and the fibers will soften nicely. If you do choose to dry clean your sling, please use an environmentally friendly cleaner so that your child is not later inhaling dry cleaning fumes on the sling. Be sure to unthread your sling before you clean it, regardless of which cleaning method you use.
