Pavo Textiles - LINEN De La Sol review

Pavo's cotton De la sol has lived here and become a favorite cushy shorty; the pattern is a particular favorite of mine (lace doily, anyone?) and I wear it wrong side out often as not. 

When a LINEN version arrived I was not too sure about this imposter version. Oh, how wrong I was. My only complaint is that it's printed, and therefore not reversible... But it's everything I love about linen. 
It's taken a right beating with a heavy (13-15kgs child!) to get to its current floppy state, but Pavo linen is worth the work. Rock-solid, flattish and geared to precision tightening, easy to get a sleek wrap job in, doesn't shift an inch. Yay. 


 Width lends itself to pleating or sandwiching the shoulders, which creates a little more cush, but this is: shortlist for fresh, glamorous summer beater.

 In comparison to Oscha linen, this is more substantial, and has taken longer to feel loose in hand than my lewlewbelle linens. The print is the big advantage- it lends texture and grip, which is ideal when wrapping an older child. 

 Verdict? If you're prepared to work at it, this could be a delightful love affair. 

Of course, now I want one in every color...!
