Designed in collaboration with the True Colours pre-order group, this sling is woven with a gorgeous rainbow fade.
Alternating Bourette silk and machine washable Cashwool bring a woolie softness and a wonderfully grippy texture to this colourful fabric.
This sling is woven with BCI organic cotton. By using BCI cotton we ensure that our cotton meets the Better Cotton Initiative’s high standards of environmental, economic and social responsibility. Our BCI cotton is also organic, meaning it is grown with care and without chemicals keeping the land, and farmers, healthy.
Bourette silk is strong, supportive and with a hint of cush making it perfect for carrying bigger kids. Characteristic nubs and slubs speckle this yarn to give a lovely unique look to each piece of fabric.
Machine washable cashwool is an easy-care superfine merino wool yarn, which is wonderfully soft and supportive with less bulk than traditional wools, it’s lovely drape makes it easy to wrap with. This yarn is made from mulesing-free wool.
*Please note the top of this fabric is the red side, carriers will be made with this side at the top. Items marked as ‘top’ or ‘bottom’ only show the noted half of the fabric.
