Out of the bag Gotham was quite stiff and not at all malleable, which scared me a little. However, after a wash the fibres tightened and relaxed all at once - this felt very textured and bumpy, but a few twists and a brief hammocking later it's a cushy cotton with a nice amount of grip and texture. Getting the second pass to spread well is a little challenging, but once it's there it locks in beautifully.
With a 27lb/12kg toddler this all-cotton is cushy and supportive. It doesn't dig at all and it's fluffed up a little more with subsequent washings. I would choose a smoother-textured wrap for a very new baby, but broken-in, Gotham doesn't disappoint.
(Just briefly... I love the very Australian Aboriginal feel of this wrap. It's like wearing a piece of art.)
