Misfit "River"

Regular price $ 145.00

The perfect rich mix of blues flow in choppy waves across our house design, Misfit, in a recycled Eco2cotton / Tencel / cotton blend.

Misfit River woven wrap baby carrier, available now in limited quantities, offers all the support of Eco2cotton®, a nubby recycled yarn, combined with a low percentage of Tencel for softness. We call this blend, on a cotton warp, EcoCel. It's like buying the perfect newborn-to-toddler wrap already broken in!

The design is inspired by the large-scale camouflage painted on large ships during the World War I period. The camouflage was known as Razzle Dazzle and broke up the edges of the ship to keep its distance and size an unknown.

Hiding in plain sight? This idea rings true for some caregivers who have undergone a change in their identities ... having a child with you sometimes makes you invisible. Well, not with this stunning woven wrap!

Custom ring slings will be made to order. Please specify size in the comments as you check out. 

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!

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.

Choosing a size woven wrap or ring sling for babywearing

 

Woven Wraps

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):

Woven Wrap Size Chart Length Meters Baby Carrier for Babywearing

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).

Shrinkage:

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
