wild slings silence – l’ortie sauvage (nettle)
Dear Wild Slings' Friends,
The sound of silence balms my soul. It soothes, hugs you like your best friend, allows you to rest and focus and a moment of meditation. When I hear silence, I can immerse myself, feel at one with my soul, find a connection and regain my balance. During my last mountain trip, I had the honor to hear the silence of the universe, to feel like a part of a larger whole, like a small piece of a larger puzzle, the meaning of which is not yet known to us, but we deeply feel that where we are going - is good. Stunning peace combined with the beauty of the surrounding world enchanted me, absorbed the whole, giving inspiration to weave my new wrap.
The silence, nature and mysticism that inspired me to create this wrap enchant me every day. That is why I am proud to present the Silence wrap in a completely new version - I used not only wonderful cotton but also nettle fibers to weave it - but do not worry, the nettle fibers do not sting! I decided to weave only 12 wraps in this pattern and composition, never no more of them will be created, which makes them even more special and unique.
Let me tell you about the characteristics of the nettle yarn. It is made of 100% natural materials, without any added chemicals, Himalayan nettle sourced ethically from the indigenous people of Nepal. It is wild and at the same time extremely soft, has long fibers to the touch resembling baby hair. It is irregular like linen and as strong as linen, but as delicate as milk yarn. Breathable, natural in every detail and incredibly eco-friendly, just perfect! The wrap is decorated with three foggy runes that appear above the treetops. Mannaz, Algiz and Berkano denoting three symbols in symbiosis, three powerful forces guarding the child.
The new color "Silence - L'ortie sauvage" was created to pay tribute to nature, which always gives me a little respite and tranquility in the daily rush. I hope that these wonderful colors: velvety deep green combined with deep black will also make you feel calm and soothing in your heart. This wrap definitely combines the secrets of the forest with peace, quiet and gentleness worthy of the first touch of a newborn's skin. By wrapping your baby in a wrap that is incredibly soft to the touch, you also wrap your baby around them with your love and give them the best. Caring for a child is so natural and primal, it allows us to connect with nature and feel part of the circle of life. During these amazing moments, you can visualize how good we feel when we do something that is in harmony with our nature, slowly catching every priceless memory.
As usual, this wrap has a unique and noble blend, very soft, perfect both for the first reeling for newborns and for carrying older children, because I made sure that it was extremely supportive. I am sure that this wrap will also have a magical effect on your beloved child and help him calm down and fall asleep with a peaceful, safe sleep in your arms.
I weave Wild Slings wraps on my own loom which guarantees them the highest quality and attention to every detail. Every wrap is also steam cleaned before being sent.
