Shoulder Style


This ring sling has a pleated shoulder. A pleated shoulder means that the fabric is sewed in place and so you may not be able to spread the fabric as much as with a gathered shoulder. May be more comfortable for those with narrower shoulders.



Danu slings are designed, woven and handmade in Ireland. Find out all about them here

This particular ring sling is a cotton linen blend - 52% Irish Linen, 48% cotton.

Linen blend wraps are often recommended for those looking for a supportive wrap. Linen is amazingly popular, many of the most highly sought after woven wraps are linen blends. Linen has been cultivated for over 10,000 years and is made from the fibres of the flax plant. The longer the flax used, the finer and less coarse the linen will feel. Italy, Ireland and Belgium are all highly regarded for their high quality linen production.

Many linen blend wraps can be tough to break in, but they are worth it. They break in to be buttery soft and usually have a silky soft quality to them. Linen is a strong and supportive fibre, but it has poor elasticity, and can feel hard and diggy on the shoulders unless blended with another fibre. However, a broken in linen wrap can actually be amazingly cushy.

Linen is smooth and cool to the touch. Its coolness, and its ability to gain up to 20% moisture without feeling damp to the touch, makes it ideal for wearing in warmer weather. It is one of the few fibres that is stronger when wet than when dry.

Linen wraps are virtually indestructible. If you are looking for a sought-after, supportive and cool wrap, then linen is where it's at!

To find out more about other blends available, please see our guide to woven wrap blends.



You can use a ring sling to carry your baby on your front with baby facing in, or on either of your hips with baby facing in.

Additionally, you can also use a ring sling to carry your child on your back or on your front with your child facing out. However, both of these positions are more advanced so we would generally recommend these positions to experienced babywearers.




We want you to be able to get the most out of your sling hire, so we offer a large range of accessories available for you to add on to your sling hire. Only accessories appropriate to the sling or carrier you are hiring will be offered.

Check out our guide to available accessory add on options for more information on the choices offered above.

Rental Period


When you are renting a sling for the first time you will get 2 days added on to the end of your rental period to allow for posting so that you hopefully get the full amount of time requested, actually with the sling.

So, if you choose a 2 week rental starting on the 1st of the month, your hire end date will be the 16th (14 days plus 2 days extra)

The sling will be posted to you on the 1st, hopefully arrive (dependent on Royal Mail) the 2nd and you will need to post it on or before the 15th to ensure it arrives with us by the 16th.

If you are extending your hire then no extra days are added, so a 2 week extension means that the sling will be due back 14 days later than originally agreed.

How to Rent


These are the steps needed to rent this carrier:

1) Select a type of hire -you can choose from postal hire and extension of existing hire. Only use extension of existing hire if you currently have the sling in your possession.
