Aesthetics aside – as I already said, Olive is a bit rough to touch, which is due to its twill. The twill is dense; however, made of teeny weeny threads that are quite loose in particular places of the pattern – these are the ˈlocus minoris resistentiaeˈ and the pulls are a real pain in the, ehm, bottom to repair. The wrap is broken in through by through after all the time it has been travelling around for testing, well cooperating while tying, not slippery at all, on contrary – very grippy and did not move an inch in the carry. I like grippy wraps much more than the slippery ones, but Olive was grippy a bit too much – it even scratched my skin a little bit which was not very pleasant. On the other hand, when I counted its weight I was pretty surprised – I thought the weight would be around 260 or 270 g/m² – maybe, it is the effect of the specific twill? Anyway, this all-cotton skinny is surprisingly supportive and is able to carry much more than it seems. We wore the wrap for a half-day trip to zoo with 9kg Emilka and it was OK in a multi-layer carry; however, in a single-layer carry Olive was not supportive enough and my shoulders felt sore in a short while.
In conclusion – an interesting wrap with interesting twill and surprisingly supportive considering its low weight. It could serve as a good universal wrap for most of the babywearing years.
My thanks for the opportunity to test this wrap go to the group Nosíme děti (i.e. We wear our babies)!
