Ice blue Japanese silk with melange confetti on ecru. The wrap is soft from the bag and will need minimum breaking in after the first wash. It will adjust to your body as your second skin while being gentle and supportive with perfect glide and grip. Supima cotton and seaweed add extra lush and softness.

* - this batch has a slight irregularity in hemming, which does not have impact on the safety of the wraps.
Linen and tussah silk are blended in this wrap. The roughness of the linen fiber is compensated with the softness and smoothness of the silk. The resulting yarn is soft, strong, a little hairy and shiny. The wrap is suitable for all ages. It will be soft enough for babies and strong enough for toddlers.

* - second grade, small flaw
A challenge for the brave only! The wrap is beastly right from the bag and requires a moderate breaking in period. A good wash and a steam iron will help you on your way to make it a strong, supportive and easy to handle wrap. Once the wrap is properly broken in, it will be suitable for most ages and most experience levels.Slubs and nubs are normal for this wrap as it has a rather high hemp content.
NB: this batch falls a little shorter than you are used to with Solnce wraps.
* this wrap has a weaving flaw which does not affect the safety of the wrap
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.
