Bloomyloom choco-grass swirls
100% combed cotton, 220g/m2
(Officially the wraps are max 75cm before washing and minimum 70cm after. The tester was pretty wide with 80cm.)
Bloomyloom is a brand from Hungary, with woven wraps & matching bags (and soon they will add carriers!). The people behind this brand are graduated designers, product design and architectural design. They both work as interior and furniture designer and are close to home textiles. I love the modern style of the Bloomyloom designs.
I already own a Bloomyloom bag in the swirl design for a while & I loved testing the matching wrap. Green is not really my colour, but in combination with brown I actually liked it 🙂
The wrap softens up very quick & is easy to wrap with. It has a nice diagonal stretch, without giving to much bounce.
With my little girl (around 10kg) it’s surprisingly comfortable in a one layer carry, but with my heavier toddler I prefer a double hammock.
The tester is pretty wide with 80cm, which is great for bigger children but might be a bit overwhelming with a little baby. Bloomyloom told me that the wraps normally should be around 75 pre wash and a minimum of 70cm post wash. This shoulde be easier for newbie wrappers to handle with their newborn babies.
This wrap is suitable for all, 100% cotton makes it easy to wash & a great everyday wrap.
It’s supportive enough to use with a heavier child, but if you really want a toddler wrap you can take a look at their linen blends too.
The wrap is airy, I think it will be nice in summer. It’s very smooth, the pattern doesn’t really provide any texture or grip.
High backpasses slide into place without any effort, but it also makes it less suitable for a knotless carry. With a heavier child you might need to re-tighten your knotless finish after a while.
The linen wrap provides more grip, but also needs more breaking in.
If it comes to the size I would say you can’t go wrong with this one. It’s a nice shorty for hipcarries, but will also shine in a longer size for FWCC or Double Hammock (and fance finishes!).
Fun & great detail about the wrap: both rails are hemmed differently. This way the wrap doesn’t have a ‘wrong’ or ‘right’ side. I love it!
With a price close to 100 euro for a size 6 I consider this brand as being ‘affordable’, you can buy their products on etsy.
