    Didymos Silva

      AT A GLANCE Brand / weave: Didymos / Silva Fibre: 78% cotton, 12% linen, 10% silk Measurements: 488cm long , 67cm wide, 324gsm Key words: Cushy, supportive     EEEEE! You’ll have to forgive me. I know, opening a review with a squeal is not ideal. But I have been so excited to get the chance to review this wrap! Didymos has previewed/teased Silva a number of times, and each time I have been intrigued by it. So, let’s find out: has Silva lived up to my expectations?     When you first handle this wrap, you don’t think of it as heavyweight. It has a gauzy texture and…

     Didymos Facett Tethys

    ​ AT A GLANCE Brand / weave: Didymos / Facett Fibre: 100% cotton Measurements: 499cm long, 67.5cm wide, 207gsm Key words: Soft, waffle, glide, thin     I’ve been curious about the Facett weave for a while, so I’m delighted I’ve had the chance to try one for myself.

    AT A GLANCE Brand / weave: Didymos / Prima Fibre: 100% cotton Measurements: 471 cm long, 69.5 cm wide, 240 gsm Key words: Mouldability, glide.   Two things stood out to me when I first wrapped with Sage: the mouldability and the ease of tightening. Combined, these two characteristics allow me to get extremely snug wrap jobs (particularly in back carries) – I feel as though I’m gluing my toddler to me! This snugness is what makes Sage so comfortable for me. It’s not cushy, but (with proper tightening) it isn’t diggy. Having Isaac hugged so closely to my body distributes his weight fantastically.       The lovely mouldability/glide…

    Accidental Loveliness

    I recently took a stash shot featuring the indios I currently own. It was a nice shot.   Then I set up a few of the indios for a taper comparison shot, since one has deeper tapers than unsual. (I really love geekery details like this!)     I was all set to bundle the wraps up and take them back into my house, when my eye was caught by the ‘messy’ edge of the wraps. I’d lined up the tapers oh-so-neatly, but behind that I’d pushed the wraps around any-old-how, letting them fold and drape towards the ground.   And actually, it was really gorgeous. One of the things…
