*** 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.
Examples of our wraps made of 100% Combed cotton:
- Tsuki Sugar Night
- Always Night Aurora
- Runes Eclipse Waters
- Remember Circle of Life

*** 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. From start it can feel rough and stiff, but it changes with every wear. It carries strong and is suitable for toddlers and when broken in, also babies. It has a very good grip and doesn’t need a lot of tightening to be comfortable. It has a little bit of bounce and no stretch.

*** SHANTUNG VISCOSE BLEND ***
Long time since last blend series so here you go one of your fav blend!
What is viscose?
This fabric is made as a result of chemical processing of cellulose.
Cellulose for viscose is most often made from wood pulp, usually from coniferous trees. Viscose is classified as a plant fiber, just like linen or cotton. Shantung is a type of silk fabric with characteristic irregular ridges known as slubs. Despite its subtly irregular texture. So it the general look it reminds tussah silk (jaspe shantung type). The properties of viscose can be compared to those of cotton, but the material feels more like silk. Allergy sufferers can wear viscose. It cools moisture well and allows the skin to breathe.
* Viscose breathes!
In fact, it is breathable like cotton or linen. You can wear it on hot days. What's more, even a small admixture of this fiber makes the clothes more airy.
* Viscose absorbs moisture!
As a fabric of natural - plant origin, it absorbs moisture, which is very good for your skin.* Viscose is delicate and soft to the touch
* Viscose fibers create one of the most pleasant to the touch materials. They can successfully compete with the delicacy of silk.Viscose is hypoallergenic
Not only is it pleasant to wear on bare skin in summer or winter, people with extremely sensitive skin also do not have to worry about it. Well, viscose, as a material made of wood cellulose, should not cause allergies, so it is hypoallergenic.
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.

* Yggdrasil Emerald Forest
* Always Night Light
* Driada Golden Night
* Nomeolvides Monochrome

Silk with a unique color of turmeric falling into copper.This silk is referred to as "non-violent silk" because the Eri silkworms are not killed during the silk-making process. Eri pupae can develop into adults, and only cocoons left by the butterfly are used to obtain silk fibers. Eri silkworms are the only ones apart from the mulberry silkworm - Bombyx mori, that have been completely domesticated. Because of its softness and warmth, it is popularly used to make scarves and bedspreads. ERI silk yarns are highly useful in the production of various fabrics, as well as perfect for knitted fabrics. The properties of Eri fabrics - drapeability, air permeability, fabric fluffiness, coverage factor, crease recovery, fabric stretch - are comparable to mulberry silk.
This silk is extremely durable, but uncoiling and spinning is not as easy as wool.
*** BLEND SERIES – MERINO WOOL ***
Merino sheep live in the mountainous areas of New Zealand. The weather conditions here are extremely difficult, requiring perfect adaptation to the changing climate. These sheep are among the largest and oldest sheep species in the world. Their wool is constructed in such a way that individuals of this species can survive in changing conditions. Their wool, also known as merino wool, is dense, but its fibers are very thin and delicate. The fleece of these sheep perfectly protects against low temperatures and does not cause discomfort during hot weather. In summer, merino wool breathes and prevents the sheep's body from overheating, and in winter it warms, protecting against low temperatures, snow and rain. Merino wool allows you to maintain optimal body temperature even in difficult conditions and with great physical exertion. Additionally, the appropriate breathability of merino allows for good moisture removal from the skin, ensuring a sense of comfort. It is able to absorb moisture up to 35% of its own weight. The basic advantages of merino wool include: Lightness – merino wool has an excellent warmth to weight ratio. Good quality fibers provide warmth regardless of the thickness of the sweater - the sweater is light to wear and yet provides maximum warmth. Moisture absorption – merino wool can absorb up to 35% of its weight. At the same time, it draws moisture out, making the skin feel dry even when the clothes are damp. Thermoregulation – merino wool is characterized by minimal thermal conductivity. The thinner the fiber and the denser the fleece, the better the thermal insulation. Odor resistance – merino wool is naturally resistant to absorbing odors from the environment. Antistatic – merino wool is resistant to electrostatic forces, which means it does not stick to other materials. Flexibility – merino wool clothes are very flexible and retain their shape for many years. Even when stretched, they return to their original form. Breathability – regardless of the thickness of the material, merino provides great breathability. All thanks to the scales covering the wool fibers, which create pores enabling air exchange. Easy to clean - thanks to the high content of natural fats, merino wool does not get dirty and is easier to clean. Additionally, clothes made of this material do not require frequent washing because the wool regenerates automatically when in contact with oxygen. Fire resistance – unlike other fibers, merino wool does not melt under the influence of high temperatures. It is the least flammable and the safest - it is self-extinguishing and in case of contact with fire it will not melt or stick to the skin. UV protection – merino wool has a UPF filter of at least 50, which provides complete sun protection. This is much more than the protection provided by cotton or synthetic materials.
We obtain our merino wool only from trusted sources, because animal welfare is priceless to us.
We have made many models with merino because we think it is very special and amazing blend, examples:
- ALICE HERBAL WONDERLAND
- RUNES HONEY
- FAINRY WING SMOOLIGHT
- PRINCESSA TEAL
- THE WOLF MONOCHROME
- SELENE VIOLET SKY
… and many others!
Due to the common opinion that wool is pungent, some people may be sensitive to wool, but merino wool is not just wool, it is something more than wool. We encourage everyone, even skeptics, to try a merino wool wrap at least once and see if this blend is for them :)
*** BLEND SERIES – KBT WOOL ***

What does kbT mean?
Kbt means controlled biological farming. So its oekological proofed. Only from living sheeps. Yarn is under GOTS Standard. We kabe kbT woll that is merino.

It has all the same properties as merino wool. It can be worn both in summer and winter because it has thermoregulatory properties. Wonderfully airy and wicks moisture away from the body. It is much more delicate to the touch than its traditional counterpart. This is due to its thin and flexible fibers that adapt to the human body. For comparison, woolen sweaters, which many people remember from childhood, have much thicker fibers without elasticity. They resemble small pins that stick into the body, causing skin irritation. Merino wool is free from these disadvantages. According to many people, it is characterized by softness and delicacy. It can therefore be worn on the body.
