Woven wraps are amazing for carrying! (And for impromptu sun shades, blankets, hammocks… !)
Yes, there’s a level of skill and practice required, but what you can achieve with just a length of great quality woven fabric is amazing. From the different carries (front, hip, back) to the different finishes (candy cane chest belts, flat reef knots, fancy twists and knotless secure tucks…) it’s a whole geeky subculture of carrying!
This wrap is a size 3-4, so for the majority of people it’s a below-your-base-size wrap. This means that it’s probably not for brand new beginners with a tiny newborn (the typical starting point is a Front Wrap Cross Carry with your base size wrap). But if you’re into wrapping, it’s super handy to have a below-your base size wrap for carries that don’t require that much fabric.
You can read lots more about wrap sizing and carries, but for me (a fairly average base size 6) I’d use this for:
- Front carries: Front Wrap Cross Carry Tied Under Bum, a Kangaroo front carry,
- Hip Carries: Hip Cross Carries, Robins Hip Carry, Poppin’s Hip Carry
- Back Carries: Ruck Tied in Front
