This wrap is made from combed Egyptian cotton and a luxury blend of natural bamboo and tussah silk. The new wrap feels solid and dense in hand. But the first wash will make it floppy, moldable and cushy wrap, with just enough bounce to stay gentle for your shoulders. The wraps requires a moderate breaking in period. The natural bamboo and tussah silk blended yarn makes the wrap soft enough for newborns, but perfectly strong and supportive for toddlers.
The natural bamboo / tussah silk yarn is not even, with nubs and slubs, which is totally normal for this type of yarn. Your wrap might contain small nubs, slubs, pieces of uneven yarn. I would recommend this wrap to those, who can appreciate the natural beauty of this yarn.
More information about natural bamboo (bamboo linen)
There are two ways of processing the bamboo plant to create yarn. The first is a mechanical process, creating what is informally called bamboo linen, and the second, more popular approach, is the chemical process used for producing rayon or viscose fabric.
Mechanically produced bamboo - natural bamboo (bamboo linen)
Mechanically produced bamboo yarn requires no chemicals, pesticides or fungicides. Using a process similar to the one that produces linen from flax, bamboo fibers are raked and combed into long strands. The fibers are then drawn out and spun into a yarn that is silky and smooth to the touch.
There is very little natural bamboo on the market and the yarn is hard to find, becuse the production process is more labor intensive and costly.
Chemically processed bamboo
The method for producing bamboo viscose yarn requires a series of steps similar to those used for other rayon yarns. The process uses chemical solvents to dissolve the bamboo cellulose into a viscose solution.
Hydrogen peroxide is added as a stabilizer and the solution is forced through spinnerets into a hardening bath which causes thin streams of viscose bamboo solution to harden into bamboo cellulose fiber threads.
The hardening bath is usually a solution of water and methanol, ethanol or a similar alcohol. The regenerated bamboo fiber threads can then be spun into bamboo yarn for weaving into fabric.
This is a medium-heavyweight wrap. It is soft even unwashed and will get even more soft after washing. 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.
No itch guaranteed!
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.
