*** COMBED COTTON ***
Cotton is the basic fiber that is used in the production of clothing. It has plant origin and is obtained from the seeds of the cotton plant. After their coloration, the seed capsule is formed, which breaks during maturation and releases cotton wool outside. Cotton, after harvesting, is cleaned and selected. The longer fibers will go to the combing necessary to start the spinning process. Combing adds softness and bounce to the cotton. Even and straight grains. The fibers prepared in this way form a kind of smooth belt, from which the roving is formed, and then yarn is obtained from the roving in the spinning mill. The next step is twisting the yarn to strengthen it and give it continuity. Cotton really absorbs moisture from the environment very well. Moreover, it retains heat. Of course, it depends on the type and thickness of cotton. The thicker one adds a pleasant warmth, and the thin one cools and gives air to the skin.
Cotton doesn't sensitize, if there are such cases, it is rather the fault of the dyes, not the fiber itself. Cotton is also just amazingly nice to touch. It can be successfully worn on the naked body (without a T-shirt) because it does not give you the feeling of itching or biting. In our wraps we use combed cotton mostly 2-ply.
In addition, cotton is easy - care, doesn't require special care and can be washed and ironed at higher temperatures.
Cotton is found in almost all of our slings because it is durable, strong and soft at the same time. Cotton is recommended for parents who are just starting their adventure with babywearing, because it is easy-care and easier to learn to tie and finish the first wraps. From the experience collected from parents who have our wraps, we observe that cotton is great for both newborns and toddlers, and it is great for every season, which gives it the character of the most universal blend.
Our 100% combed cotton wraps are one of the cheaper ones on offer.

*** HEMP FIBER ***
Do you resign of buying wrap because of hemp ?
How hemp fibers are made.
Hemp fiber is obtained primarily from straw, which undergoes a retting process. The purpose of this process is to separate the bast fibers from the rest of the stem. Retting is essentially the fact that the straw is fermented through the action of organic substances. Thanks to this, pectin decomposes, which act as a "glue" connecting the lignified part of the hemp with its fibers.
Hemp fabrics are characterized by extraordinary durability and health benefits that are worth remembering. They have antibacterial and antifungal properties and absorb moisture. The lignins contained in the hemp plant protect against the penetration of ultraviolet rays - another great reason to make caps, hats, summer clothes out of them.
We know there are many myths in babywearing about hemp fiber that it is stiff, non-ironable, uncomfortable and rough. It is true that hemp, like linen, is a durable fiber, therefore it must be slightly stiffer than bamboo or silk, but proper care and washing can make it soft and delicate. In fact, you can only judge hemp fiber if you wash it several times and tie it several times. Hemp will thank your skin on hot days!
Now admint lovelies, how many of you give up buying a wrap just because it is made of hemp? How may times did you try hemp blend? And let's show us your hemp wraps!

*** TUSSAH SILK BLEND ***
Tussah silk is derived from a variety of silkworms that eat oak leaves and other tannin-rich leaves. The tannins in the leaves give the tussah silk its characteristic pale golden color. Tussah silk fibers are much thicker and stronger than standard silk and are oval rather than round. The silk tussah fabric has a thicker grip than regular silk because the initial threads are not that thin.
Tussah silkworms are much more hardy and can survive in the wild much more easily. Due to the rougher texture of silk and the sparse wild populations of tussah silkworms that are harvested for silk, tussah silk is sometimes referred to as "wild silk". Tussah silk fabrics are characterized by having lots of little tucks and knots that add a beautiful and wild look to the fabric. Tussah silk is a fiber that is suitable for every season.
This silk is very raw and full of nubs. Its really strong, and it needs to be broken in. When fully broken in, its floppy and soft but still has its characteristic nubs.

Linen is distinguished by timeless elegance and never goes out of style! This unique blend was produced by mankind in antiquity. Linen fabric is made of natural plant fiber obtained from the stalk of flax. The term linen material covers both fabrics made of pure linen yarn and those with an admixture of wool, cotton or polyester. The addition of other fibers allows to reduce the negative qualities of linen. They eliminate, for example, the susceptibility to creasing, while maintaining its characteristic, positive properties (such as airiness and durability). In our wraps we mainly use pure linen, if it has other blends, we inform you about it in the description.
Fabrics made of natural linen yarn are distinguished by a number of unique properties. The linen material is antiallergic and has an antibacterial effect. It is very strong, has a high resistance to abrasion and stretching. Moreover, linen does not pick up static. It is also distinguished by high moisture absorption, airiness. Linen fabric has cooling properties. That is why it is especially eagerly used for sewing summer clothes - it gives a pleasant feeling of coolness on hot days. Linen products are more durable than other natural, delicate fabrics. However, many people still avoid flax fabrics due to the fabric's reputation for being difficult to care for. Fortunately, with these few simple tricks, properly caring for your linen fabric will be a pleasure! Many people are afraid to buy linen wraps because there is a myth that linen is stiff. Yes, linen is not a super soft fiber like bamboo and micro tencel, but it should not be assessed before washing and ironing. After a few washes, linen becomes soft and does not lose its strength, but remember not to wash it at too high a temperature - you can iron it wet, which will additionally soften it. Linen will be great for both newborns and older children, because it is a durable material, you will not feel the weight of the baby longer than with other fabrics. Of course, this is an individual matter and everyone loves different admixtures, we know it perfectly well.
