Orange is an American Made Woven Baby Wrap, woven in the classic Herringbone weave. It is a medium-weight wrap and suitable to carry babies of all ages and stages.
Soft and pliable from the beginning, with an elegant drape, Herringbone only improves with time. A quintessentially classic textile, Herringbone lovingly caresses and supports your child without a lot of bulk or weight. Often associated with menswear, Herringbone is very Daddy friendly!
Breathable and light, the cotton yarns and a subtle ribbed texture leave skin cool and comfortable through the heat of summer, though substantial enough though all four seasons. The Cotton-Tencel® blend yields a luster, shine and softness the whole family will fall in love with.This wrap, wraps itself!
More on Tencel® Fiber:
Tencel® is the natural fiber of the future. It is manufactured by the Austrian company Lenzing and it is one step beyond organic cotton. It is produced from the eucalyptus trees, grown on farms.
As for the sustainability, its manufacture requires only 154.7 gallons of water for 1 pound of fiber, and it needs about half acre for any ton.
Furthermore, it is fully biodegradable: tests say it will take a maximum of six weeks for a Tencel® textile to dissolve.
But it is not interesting only for its sustainability. Also the peculiar characteristics of the Tencel® fiber are attractive, and make it a wonderful choice for children-related use.
It is particularly suitable for sensitive skin: the fiber is soft and smooth and it has great moisture absorption, 50% greater than cotton. This, together with its natural breathability, keeps the skin dry, avoiding rashes. The incredible moisture management of the fiber also makes Tencel® anti-bacterial.
Please be sure to review safety guidelines and instructions. Also, wraps will arrive in "loom state", and as such, we recommend that you wash before use as follows:
Wash on the gentle cycle in cold water, with a liquid detergent
Tumble dry on low, (I like to to add wool dryer or tennis balls, but they are not necessary)
Finish with a steam iron on the cotton setting before use
Approx. 10% shrinkage is customary
Your Poe will arrive lovingly packaged and include hand-made Vermont maple candy!
