A new year’s beginning always makes you want to start fresh. Be a better person, a better parent a thinner version of yourself. Only problem is, that your job is the same, your family is the same and your surroundings are the same on that 1st January Morning. Making a real life changing decision is therefore often only managed by those who have a true and deep desire to change something. Be the change and make the sacrifices. We did that in 2016. We had a burning desire to create Lollik and on this January morning of 2017, we couldn’t help but look back and evaluate our first year with our little company.
We realised that one of the key factors that had made this journey possible was, that we have done this as a family. We have included our children and invited them along with us on this journey. They are traveling with us and have recently been with us to visit our Mill and the wrap show 'Carry on London'. We still do all the things we did before like enjoying the nature on the weekends, baking, drawing and playing with Lego for hours. The new thing is, that we also have days where our 4 year old daughter is helping us fold boxes, silk paper and pick out colours and yarns for new releases. She feels so envolved and that we really need her help. At this point, we have learned that her favorite part of a release is, when we go to the post office. That really proud look on her face just gets us every time. That tiny person in front of the big counter, paitently waiting until each box has been processed.
When we show her pictures from our chatter group, Lollik Lounge, where all the Lollik owners are so kind to flash their babies and wraps, she says: Look, look that is one of our wraps.
Isabell had this wrap as a favorite among our strike off samples for this winter (mostly based on the rose colour we think) and when we chose to release it, the name was easy How could we call it anything else than Isabell?
This wrap is something really special. We just love how the two wefts of the dusty rose silk and mottled virgin wool makes an almost 3D like effect. It feels thin in hand but can easily hold your toddler. It has a lot of grip and texture while being stretchy, mouldable and cushy on the shoulders.
This is however, not a wrap for you, if you are wool sensitive.
