Bloomylooms woven wrap review

Hungarian company  Bloomylooms certainly have their graphics under control and on trend! 

This cute all-cotton owl wrap came to me in a size 4 that's perfect for FWCC tied in front, half FWCC, a quick ruck or a tight DH. 

Owls is quite light in hand, around 230gsm, and will be a nice summery wrap as the weather warms. Washing lifted the pattern and gave the weave a little more texture, but I found it to glide and knot quite easily. You can see how mouldable this was and and how nicely it pleats in a pass! 

While this felt quite comfortable in a multi-pass carry with Audrey (2yo, 12kgs), I would call it more of a baby wrap than a toddler wrap. In a ruck this needed some careful tightening to remain  evenly spread and doesn't have a lot of cush to mask a sloppy wrap job. Of course, this means you can coax it into wrapping like a second skin, so this is very much about your personal preferences as a wrapper."

I do love the cool color palette and retro styling of the pattern- the owls are top-and-tailed, so there's no such thing as upside-down, and wrong side out looks just as lovely as right.
