A woven wrap is a uniquely woven, long piece of material that is used to securely wrap your baby to your body. These wraps are woven in such a way that they are supportive, safe, and slightly stretchy to create a perfect carrier for babies of all ages. Woven wraps take a bit of practice, but once you get used to them you wonder how you ever went without it!
The fabric used in woven wraps is not the kind of fabric you can buy at fabric stores or make yourself, unless you are a weaver with a floor loom! The weaves of woven wraps can vary and provide unique wearing and carrying functions. You can find weaves that range from loose to tight, some with no stretch and others with lots of stretch, some are grippy in texture and others glide easily. If you are new to wrapping we recommend going with a simple weave in 100% cotton. Ovolo, Didymos, and Lenny Lamb would be perfect choices!
Most woven wraps have a center marker (generally a small label sewn in). This middle marker tells you how to line the wrap up on your body for each particular carry.
