About the design:
This design depicts our beautiful native Toetoe, something so familiar to NZers we probably look right past it sometimes.
Toetoe is part of the scenery of life here. It reminds us of fond childhood memories at the beach - hunting and gathering, pretending we had wizard wands. Or beards. And all through the years to the present day, it is part of coastal strolls, bush walks, road trips.
Feathery, fluttery, deceptively tough...lovely whimsical fluff.
Falkor at Dusk is a smooshy and strong quad blend of cotton, possum, merino, and silk. It has grip and cush and wonderful support with a gentle touch of stretch and a perfect bit of bounce. In hand it feels blankety and medium to thick. If you have felt Sweetheart Deep Purple, our first possum blend, then you will recognise many of the same gorgeous wrapping qualities in Falkor. There is more texture here and a loftier feel, it slinks into place and then stays put. The remaining fabric available contains some minor weaving flaws that do not affect its use for carrying and after the first wash are virtually undetectable visually on the blue weft side.
I really loved this for carrying a newborn - so much squish-worthy snuggle factor and breathable softness. It has likewise shown it’s strength and support, and proven itself fantastic for cuddle bouncing the smile back onto an older sibling’s face. And i shifted to a ring sling version once that newborn was bigger, one of our ALL time favourite ring slings right through his toddlerhood...sigh...they just don't stay little do they?!
We are able to ship ring slings to New Zealand and Australia only.
Your ring sling will arrive in loom state and requires washing before use to set the weave. We feel it's better to leave the choice of washing detergent up to you in case of any sensitivities. Images of the wrap version are to show the design and colour when in use.
We hope you enjoy wrapping your babies in Aroha, made with love in New Zealand ❤
