This is a medium-heavyweight wrap. It is soft even unwashed and will get even more soft aftervwashing. The wrap is easy to warp with and is suitable for all levels of experience. It is soft and gentle even for the bare skin of the newborns, and will provide a great support for the toddlers.
Alpacas have been bred in South America for thousands of years. Vicugnas were first domesticated and bred into alpacas by the ancient tribes of the Andean highlands of Peru, Argentina, Chile and Bolivia. Two thousand-year-old Paracas textiles are thought to include alpaca fiber. Also known as “The Fiber of the Gods”, Alpaca was used to make clothing for royalty (wikipepdia).
The best alaca yarn is known as royal baby alpaca. This yarn rivals cashmere for softness and silk for smooth feeling and subtle sheen. The royal baby alpaca is lighter than wool and is much warmer. It has kept the people of the Andean highlands warm for thousands of years. This yarn is also stronger than wool and is naturally water resistant. Items made from royal baby alpaca will last for years with minimum care. The royal baby alpaca yarn is made from the finest, carefully selected fibers. It is free from the coars fibers which give the prickly sensation and can be worn against bare skin.
Solnce has evolved as a result of my passion for unique textiles and fine natural fibers. It all has started with the babywearing of my first child, expanded into one of the first babywearing shops in the Netherlands. Thousands of all kinds of wraps have passed through my hands and I started appreciating not only all the great benefits of the woven wraps for the parenting, but also the creative part of making wraps.
Making of textile has always been an art in the history of human kind. I have travelled to Prague to study the art of handweaing from the master, artist and an established legend in the world of babywearing. There, in the small studio I learned not only to weave the legendary wrap, but to see the art in every yarn, every knot, every shift of the handloom.
This has inspired me to start the Solnce wraps production. Even though my wraps are woven on the machine loom, I'm involved into the production at every stage. The Solnce wraps are made in the Netherlands of the premium yarns from the best and trusted manufacturers.
The time when our children are small is a very intense, wonderful and rewarding time in our lives. I believe that babywearing is one of the ways to get the most out of it. And it is my pleasure to accompany you during this period with the Solnce wraps which I make with lots of love and passion.
