Mad Hatter Warped & Woven – Open Heart Enchantment (handwoven)
I got the chance to try a Mad Hatter, I feel very lucky: ‘open heart enchantment’ visited us!
I have to say that my expectations were very high. I love the looks and I’ve heard my friends rave about the wrapping qualities since the first release, so I was eager to try one!
The heart-pattern is cute, the selvedges are perfect and I was a bit surprised how thin it actually is. (It isn’t ‘thin’ but I just expected it to be quite thick… which it isn’t.)
This weaving pattern is prone to pulls, but it’s also very airy and I can imagine it to be very suitable for hot summer days. It’s soft and fluffy, cushy, easy to wrap with, cozy for a tiny newborn and toddlerworthy enough for a big kid! It’s easy to make the passes, I loved practicing new (to me) carries with this wrap.
These wraps are very hard to find and I almost feel sorry for saying that it’s perfect for beginners but it is! 🙂 you don’t need to be an experienced babywearer, this wrap is very forgiving and it stays in place without being too grippy. I’ve worn it in FWCC and different back carries with my youngest daughter (Alice!!!!) and I’ve tested the wrap with my toddler in a single layer carry (rucksack) and a multi layer carry (double hammock). I must say that I would prefer a multi layer carry with my toddler, but I am pretty spoiled with nice blends and this wrap has a bit too much stretch for my toddler in a single layer carry. (I do love the stretch with my youngest daughter!)
This wrap wraps very similar to a Chunky slings customs which I’ve tried, but chunky slings is a lot thicker and heavier. This Mad Hatter doesn’t feel heavy at all. It’s very cuddly, a nice snuggly wrap which definitely stands out of the crowd!
I love it when a wrap makes you feel special. This wrap comes with its own kind of magical feeling, I’ve had a lot of fun creating beautiful memories with this wrap. I’ll share a couple of pictures of our adventures 😉
