Natibaby Flamingos Bamboo Woven Wrap (Size 4)

By Natibaby

£10.00

Our View

The bamboo in this wrap makes it beautifully soft and lovely to wrap with. It was often oohed and ahhed at our sling meet. One side is blue with white flamingos and the other is white with blue flamingos, so it looks great in carries where you see both sides, such as a Robins hip carry. It looks gorgeous for special occasions such as a wedding, christening or day at the races.

Blend

This wrap is made from 70% bamboo and 30% cotton. I love bamboo blend wraps, they are super soft, but without the shimmer that silk often has. Bamboo is hypoallergenic, so is excellent for eczema and allergy sufferers or anyone with sensitive skin.

Bamboo is a natural fibre and 100% biodegradable however it does go through a lengthy process to make it useable in woven wraps. It is a sustainable plant, and doesnƒ??t require the use of pesticides or large amounts of water to cultivate. Bamboo has antibacterial qualities which are retained in the fabric ƒ?? great for reducing odours.

Bamboo blend wraps are lovely and buttery soft, they almost have a stretchiness and bounciness to them. However, bamboo can feel a little slippery, so may not be the best choice for a novice wrapper. Bamboo is often airy and has a light silky feel to it.

Bamboo is breathable, it has insulating properties that will keep you cool in summer and warm in winter. Bamboo fibre is filled with very small holes and therefore has very good moisture absorption and ventilation properties. Bamboo fabric is highly absorbent and is able to take up to three times its weight in water. This is means it pulls moisture away from the skin so that it can evaporate and keeps you cool.

Bamboo blend wraps are often my first choice for wrapping a squishy, they are lovely and soft and airy but far easier to care for than silk.

Care

Always check the manufacturerƒ??s instructions, but I recommend that bamboo wraps are best washed at 30 degrees centigrade. Be careful not to allow bamboo blend wraps to be wet for too long (45 minutes maximum ideally). As with all baby carriers and slings, it is best to use liquid detergent that is free of optical brighteners, bleach or softening agents. Its best to air dry bamboo wraps flat as it can shrink more than other fibres. Bamboo can be ironed on low or medium temperatures.

Always check the manufacturerƒ??s instructions, but in general, 100% cotton wraps and other cotton baby carriers can be washed at temperatures up to 60 degrees centigrade on the delicate cycle. It is best to use a liquid detergent that is free of optical brighteners, bleach or softening agents.

It should be noted that untreated cotton shrinks a little bit in the first wash. Most wrap companies either prewash the fabric or cut their wraps long to account for this.

You will not damage your cotton wrap by tumble drying it, but you may help prolong its life by line drying instead. It is recommended that you iron cotton wraps on a medium setting, as this prevents permanent creases and fold lines from forming and damaging the fabric.

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.

These are the steps needed to rent this wrap:
