Our very first handwoven jacquard in 50% banana and 50% cotton blend. Approximately 490gsm (but don’t be mislead by numbers – banana is very lightweight and airy, despite high gsm it feels medium thin in hand).
This sling is very strong and supportive, yet soft at the same time. It is moldable, fluffy and super cushy, it has wonderful diagonal stretch. It feels a little soapy, not scratchy like some bananas.
It will be a perfect ring sling both for smaller babies and for heavy toddlers – you can use it throughout your babywearing journey!
We care for our Planet, so we search for most eco-friendly and sustainable solutions. Since the world is wasting about a billion tons of banana stems each year, we want to use some of it to upcycle them into this amazing yarn. So, not only is this blend favorable to our environment, but it also has exceptional qualities.
It has an amazing, wild and uneven, sometimes striped structure, with lots of nubs, irregularities and curls. This brings life to fabric and creates a raw and fabulous look, very different from all other fibers.
