Blast "Firecracker" announces its presence in a cheerful summer orange.
The 45% TENCEL® and 55% undyed cotton blend offers unparalleled softness after just one wash. The snuggliness! The floppiness! As soft as your baby's blankey right off the bat with an almost peachy veneer like a favorite sweater or a well-loved t-shirt. We cannot overstate how dreamy yet thin and sturdy Firecracker is in hand despite being medium weight.
The jaquard weave fabric of Blast Firecracker is a paradox. Its design and color are bold, yet subtle, at every turn. It is orange! But a flattering, creamy orange. It is bright yet not overpowering. It evokes explosions, but in a soft artistic way. It is a firecracker, but one you turn to when you need a soft baby carrier that's easy to use.
The pattern's tiled squares are filled with radiating streaks of color, some solid, and some a lighter tint due to changes in the weave. The variations achieve inspiring bursts of color that look great in both bunched and spread passes.
Tencel® is a fiber made from sustainably harvested trees. It behaves like wool's low-maintenance cousin ... cozy and almost fuzzy and smooshy in hand like wool, but machine washable.
The fiber blend offers amazing softness immediately after the first wash and wear. This is the sort of wrap that any new wrapper could pick up and enjoy because of how easily it glides, because it tightens nicely, and because it is lovely for newborns but will be great all the way through toddlerhood, too.
Blast Firecracker ring sling features a floating gathered shoulder for cushion (without the bulk of extra padding) and silver SlingRings. It can be worn on either the right or left shoulder. Bijou Wear ring slings tend to run a few inches longer than standard.
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).
