Gray-blue Wildthing, with a gloriously nubby gray Eco2cotton and soft blue TENCEL® weft combination on an undyed cotton warp, blends softness and strength perfectly.
This stunning blue-gray color provides "every day" fashion that seems to coordinate with any look. The Wildthing pattern is a classic floral, with a bold twist in the tiger-striped petals.
The "EcoCel" USA-made jacquard woven fabric of Everyday feels medium in hand and soft and cushy immediately after the first wash. Any babywearer, new or well-versed, would find this woven wrap up to the task of either newborns or toddlers. It's everyday awesomeness, available June 13th in a small release from Bijou Wear.
Eco2cotton® yarn is made of recycled cotton products -- think of the cuttings that would otherwise fall to the floor at a t-shirt factory. What a fabulous idea! It is undyed after it is spun into yarn, creating no new pollutants and using no more water to make. However, it retains its own special mix of colors from the dyes that were in its source fabrics.
TENCEL® is a fiber made from sustainably harvested trees. It behaves like wool's low-maintenance cousin ... cozy and smooshy in hand like wool, but machine washable.
The color changes with the light, and though the pictures here attempt to show it in its range from blue-gray to gray-blue, the fabric may appear different in hand than it does on your screen. The recycled yarn offers interesting nubs and slubs that add to the natural beauty of this fabric, as well as unexpected flecks of color.
If you do not know where to start, please read this page and also see our infographic for determining your "base" size HERE.
Woven wraps are long parallelograms of fabric. The size indicates the length along one rail (a long edge) as follows (all plus or minus 0.1 meters):
Size 2 = 2.7 meters // Size 3 = 3.2 meters // Size 4 = 3.7 meters // Size 5 = 4.2 meters // Size 6 = 4.7 meters // Size 7 = 5.2 meters // Size 8 = 5.7 meters // Size 9 = 6.2 meters // Size 10 = 6.7 meters
Which size should you buy?
Many people with a baby can do a front wrap cross carry (see the FWCC tutorial here) in a size 6 woven wrap, which means that person's "base" size is a 6. Larger frames, those with larger ribcages or busts, or those with big toddlers might be base 7 or 8 or 9, and smaller frames might be base 5 or occasionally base 4. However, any person can use any size woven wrap.
With a woven wrap, you can wear your baby or toddler in a variety of ways: on your front, hip, and/or back (instruction manual provided) -- and no need to "size up" as baby grows if you have a Bijou! We are also proud that any person can wear any size woven wrap Bijou makes (3 through 9, generally). The size simply determines the carries done by that person with that wrap.
There are hundreds of ways to babywear with a woven. A short wrap is nice for on-the-go. Long wraps are great for reinforcing passes that add support. Medium wraps are versatile; some love them for nursing in a front wrap cross carry tied under bum (see the FWCC TUB How To).
During its first bath your wrap will shrink slightly, which is normal. We cut the fabric so that it will shrink to the size that you ordered (within tolerances).
ENJOY! See the included instructional booklet for carries specific to your purchase, find the same instructions at the how-to link above in the menu, or watch video tutorials HERE!
