This particular design - Shiva spirit - is particularly appealing to me, garnished with Oms, lotus flowers, and Shiva depicted as a goddess sitting in the lotus position. Audrey was delighted with "Blue!" and promptly fell asleep ten minutes after being wrapped, so I'm calling that a winning endorsement from her.
At a generous 80 cms wide, this wrap is particularly suited to toddlers, and I'm looking forward to exercising it in something more strenuous than front wrap cross carry to see how the "thin" holds up. I don't think I would love this as a shortie, but it could be a fantastic summer wrap and it's very soft and easy to work with straight from the bag (yes, I naughtily wrapped it BEFORE I washed... BAD me.)
In a beginner-friendly move, Fidella hem their rails on different sides, making it very easy to distinguish top from bottom and check nothing has twisted behind your back. The thinness of the weave let it spread easily across my shoulders and our bedtime FWCC that mutated into a weird cradle FWCC was surprisingly comfortable. I walked about the house and did a few odd tasks for about an hour with 12 kgs of unconscious two-year-old quite happily.
As you can see, the flip side is a stunning emerald green and my husband was quite taken with the colour (he has three green tee shirts. Every week I wash three green tee shirts) so I suspect he's eyeing this off as a bit of a daddy wrap.
My assessment? Fantastic baby wrap. Very soft and floppy and thin for new babes, is going to be great in summer (feels quite similar to Vatanai Koira), has a tiny knot, and a beautiful subtle design.
The best part? Thanks to the generosity of the lovely people at Fidella, I have one to GIVE AWAY!
