The right size of a wrap is chosen according to your clothing size. Our Assistant will help you with this!

What kind of a wrap to choose in summer?

If you search for a pure summer wrap, we recommend you try the linen, silk, bamboo or tencel blends. These are perfect in removing sweat quickly and thus creating a very pleasant climate. Merino wool blend is also suitable for summer babywearing, however it is important to choose the right wrap that is not too thick and the wool percentage in it is lower or softened by silk, tencel and other blends.
100% cotton wrap still stays the most universal option for the whole year – and also good for summer days.

What kind of a wrap to choose in winter?

The typical winter yarn is wool. Our wraps contain the finer merino wool that is suitable even for people with sensitive skin, who normally do not support wool. Merino wool has great thermoregulatory properties, it can warm up but also prevents overheating and keeps the child and the parent dry.
The universal all-cotton wrap is also suitable for babywearing in winter just like for the whole year.

It is possible to have one universal wrap for the whole babywearing period?

Of course, it is possible to carry your baby for the whole period in just one wrap, we recommend choosing wraps with medium and high density. Although in some moments it is going to be about compromises, you can manage it without problems.
Nevertheless, most mothers choose the thinner wraps for their new-born babies, enjoying wearing their little ones in these soft and super-easy-to-wrap-with slings, and later change their wrap for something of higher density according to their preferences.

What is a wrap weave type and how it affects its characteristics?

Weave type is a way how the yarns of the warp and weft are interwoven. In most of our wraps we use the atlas weave that is smooth, shiny and pleasant to touch. If not stated otherwise, the wraps are woven by this technique. The wrap is thin in hand, has a soft bounce to it and is easy to tighten.
Besides that our offer also contains double weaves Airy Triweave and Rich Triweave. You can learn more about them in this blog.

What is a second grade wrap?

Wraps of second grades usually contain a visual flaw, e.g. skipped yarns, several weft knots, or the weft knot situated at a visible place (in the middle of the wrap, and we did not notice during cutting but only during the final control). Of course, these wraps too can be returned unused within 14 days; more about individual flaws can be find here.

Are your wraps safe?

wraps are solely made of yarns certified according to OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 Product Class 1 and the dyeing process meets the strictest criteria for children under three years of age. The quality of our products was also proved by an independent laboratory.
The wrap is also very strong and to be torn apart it would have to be loaded with hundreds of kilograms. Thus if all babywearing safety rules are met, the wrap poses absolutely no risk to the child.

Aký ľan je použitý vo vašich šatkách?

Can you make me a wrap that is already sold out in your e-shop?

Most of our wraps are made as limited editions. Some of them are continually woven and put in stock. To make a sold-out wrap it is necessary to dye a huge amount of yarn again, weave it, etc. Thus, it is not possible to make just one wrap.
If you are interested in a wrap that is already sold-out, be sure to write us via Messenger or hello@sestrice.com and we will inform you if the chosen wrap will be made again or we will offer you alternatives.

Caring instructions

Do I have to wash the wrap before first use?

Definitely yes – by washing the wrap shrinks to its final length, the fibres fit into each other and the production process is thus completed.
Washing is also recommended because of hygiene, seeing that the wrap is in direct contact with your child.

How should I take care about the wrap?

Each wrap has a label with wrap care instructions situated at its inclined hem. Besides that each wrap is packed with a leaflet with detailed information about washing and care. Special attention should be focused at wraps made of sensitive materials like silk or wool.
