Joy and Joe's delicious Blackberry Ripple

This is so cuddly. And PURPLE! Joy and Joe sent me their 100% organic cotton Blackberry ripple to try and I couldn't be happier with it. Woven in the UK on a modern dobby loom (you can SEE it being woven here: http://joyandjoebaby.co.uk/product/the-blackberry-ripple-woven-wrap-2/)

It's a hefty 276g/m2, and after one wash drapes beautifully. The weave is quite open (broken twill) and feels very cushy. The simple striped design makes it an easy wear for parents and carers who might be a bit self-conscious in a complex design or statement color scheme. 

I FWCC'd my 11kg toddler comfortably and found this quite easy to wrap in a double hammock- not grippy enough to make passes difficult, but certainly thick enough for comfortable ruck straps. It's 80cms wide so certainly enough for toddler wrapping.

After I beat it up a little bit I lent it to a friend to wrap her squish and she absolutely raved about it- also mentioning that the contrasting color rails made it easier for her to tighten accurately and check she wasn't twisting anywhere. 

It has become delightfully cuddly and floofy after only a couple washes and line dries (I don't "do" ironing!) and is an amazing quality wrap at its price point.  
I can see this being a great workhorse wrap that does the job well and comfortably with children of varying weight and size, and washes and wears beautifully.

  3. This wrap is GORGEOUS!! Purple is my favorite color, and different colored rails are always a huge help, and I consider myself a fairly experienced wrapper.

    I'm also a babywearing group leader and this would be an amazing addition to our library, letting new parents try out the wonderful world of wovens!

  74. Oh, wow this is so simply beautiful! Purple is my favourite colour but because I have a little boy I thought I should buy a more "manly" colour wrap instead of a pretty one and because I cannot afford to buy another my dream of owning a purple one is just that right now... Fingers crossed I might get lucky! Thank you very much for this chance. :)

  83. Gorgeous! It's so nice to find cotton wraps that are wide enough and sturdy enough for toddlers! Would love to have to be able to loan out to friends and acquaintances who want to babywear; living in a small town, one does not see many babywearers around here.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  88. It sounds like it didn't have a long breaking in period! I really like that! Who has time to braid a wrap a thousand times before you can really use it?

    ReplyDelete
  89. It's absolutely gorgeous! I don't have the funds to purchase such an amazing wrap. I'd love to have a wrap to carry my next child, or even carry my 30lb 3.5 year old. :)

    ReplyDelete
  98. I am getting certified as a doula and would love to have some wraps on hand to show my families and help new mamas practice! I want them to be able to try some wraps and carriers so they have some experience before making any purchases. Hopefully having some wraps mastered early on will make the first few months postpartum blissful (as they should be!) instead of stressful :)

It is on it's way to me AS I TYPE! :) AND NOOOOWWWWWW there is a J&J giveaway for one in MY DDs favorite color?!?!?! Coincidence?

I'm small framed but my husband is a mountain man so the only wrap we have is a 7 so that we both can use it... I'd love this slightly smaller so I can try new carries without so many tails to tuck! plus its purple and gorgeous. and we're having a girl and what girl shouldnt have a purple wrap?! i mean REALLY! :)

    ReplyDelete

  137. I love the color and I definitely LOVE that it's organic cotton. I have a toddler and 4 month old. Both love being carried with the toddler often bringing me my ergo saying, 'cawee me Mummy!' And then giggles the whole time I carry her. Purple is her favorite color to do she would enjoy it just as much as me.
