West of Fourth Wrap Jubilee SG50 Flax weft by Jacqueline De Roza October 22, 2015 22:12

My almost 3 year old only wants to be carried in ring slings. So my most impt criteria for rs is that it must be comfy for one shoulder carry of this almost 14kg boy. I've tried various ring slings with linen, hemp etc & so far I've found flax to be the most supportive & comfortable. It's also thin & airy enough cos my boy sweats really easily. Plus it folds up small which is great cos he doesn't always want to be carried & I don't want to lug along too much bulky stuff. And it was soft right from the start, no breaking in needed! So soft, that my elder kid love to snuggle with it as in the photo!

I am so grateful and thankful for Afifah for this chance to get to try on this lovely wrap.

As I received, it's already soft in hand and if i wasn't be reminded, I won't guess it's a linen blend.. it's so soft and thin in hands too and I had 'that' impression of it could sag once I carry my 10kg girl. I love it's earthy colour.

I first tried on DoubleHammock and it scrap off my 1st impression. It has a beautiful amount of stretch, it glides smoothly on passes. It's a no-brainer wrap, so easy to manipulate. will be great for a beginner wrapper, imho.

It's mouldable and it wraps well. I don't feel 10kg baby on my back. Wore it for almost 2 hours for grocery shopping and it stay put despite of Sofea bouncing when her brother teased her. I have no problem or don't need any re-tie. As I wore it in mall, it's cause me no sweat at all. Cushy on my 
shoulder

I had the chance of getting my 16kg boy in it at home for his meltdown time. But sorry, no picture here. Wrap him in a ruck tie in front with extra careful wrapping. We went up and down the stairs, out to our yard for laundry and he keeps jumping and bouncing on my back. It's magically supported him well. He wasn't sag and he stayed high on the back.

This is great for baby and toddler. The width is just nice for toddler and not too overwhelming for baby. We loved it so much. Nancy is surely has that magic hands to produce magic wrap!

The first impression:
Nice packaging in a box, came with care instructions and some basic carries. I liked the pinstripey gradation look. I don't normally like brown but it really is the epitome of earth.


The feel:
Soft, so extremely soft and it felt thin in hand.

The design:
Warp colors consists of soft gradation of beige, brown, orange, burgundy. Weft color seems silver-greyish with a brilliant sheen. I thought it was very gender neutral and classy.

The experience:
Our go to carry is double hammock tied in front. It was moldable and easy to tighten. It forms a nice thin bunch on my shoulders and didn't feel warm in the heat.
However, as I'm carrying almost 14kg on my back for close to an hour, I could feel the strain on the shoulders. Worst if not spread properly.

The conclusion:
Nancy always delivers. The rails is unhemmed so you can see the raw selvedges which is perfect. The tiny tactile 'w' as a middle marker is totally adorable.
I would highly recommend this to a beginner wrapper, it's very easy to wrap with and not overwhelming as the wrap is not dense. But it's probably not for moms with heavy weights like mine.

First impression of the wrap is that it doesn't feel like a cottonlin blend. Soft to touch.
Comfy on the shoulders with a 16mo toddler.

 

DH in this, very supportive. My boy feels weightless! The wrap is also very mouldable. Easy to get the 2nd pass up

Ace. So comfy!
Felt really soft and thin in hand when I first got it. We only managed our first up today in this wrap. Definitely feels different from other cottonlin wraps that I have tried. I have tried other thin cotton wraps but they've gotten diggy even in a FWCC. So far, it feels great on my shoulders.


Little girl screaming makes for a bad wrapping day.
But nonetheless, she was weightless in a DH and it was comfortable on my shoulders. 
Tightening the chest pass took some effort on my part with a screaming and kicking baby on my back. Could have done better with the chest pass and the last pass over her back. Still a solid DH

 

I'm not the biggest fan of FCC as the weight distribution doesn't work as well for me. But this is surprisingly comfortable for me. Flipped the shoulders so that the wrap doesn't overwhelm this little one.

I have just received the tester and someone is excited to unbox
smile emoticon Nice clean looking package with a lovely brochure for front and ruck carry and ring sling use. Definitely like the washcare instructions as some wraps don't come with such tips

Beautifully soft in hand. If you told me there's linen in this, I would have said no way! I had to get prepping to go out, so he gets up in a DH. When I made the seat it felt generously wide for my 9.5mth old and passes glide easily across and with nice soft stretch after the carry is done, the type that just lets you blow your lungs up and gently settles in comfort. I'm not a huge fan of crinkles on my linen and hemp wraps, so the drape on this is just lovely.

 

Lights out for wrapee. Wide and just the right thickness for cushy shoulder straps. Wrapee has moved twice against this carry so I loosened it a little but it doesn't sag much

 

The Terracotta tones grows on you and I find that the reddish tones are flattering if you are not very fair. Trying a DH with Xena's ruckless finish, the reds are definitely the best part.

Took the wrap for our morning school run; the walk to school and home, which has 2 ascending roads and a steep ascending stone ramp to the lift lobby. Seat is solid and wearing my 9.5month old abt 9kg is not a problem at all. Slight stretch that showed my shoulders the weight of the baby, but not uncomfortable. Here we are enjoying the morning breeze on the roof

 

Conclusion:
This is a beautifully hand woven, which works well for the inbetween-infant-toddler baby, and I think wonderful for babies being so soft, unexpected of flax and lyocell, and possibly will be great as a shorty too. I'm running at the back o
f some mamas who tested before me, so not sure if there's any breaking in needed or it's just that awesome. Middle marker, umm, sometimes a little hard to find since the similar colour pin stripes runs close to it, but I don't think more should be added to it either so that it remains comfortable.
