Bloomyloom linen lime swirls
40% linen 60% combed cotton
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 dark swirl design (all cotton) and I loved trying the linen version too.
The colour is very bright, it just screams ‘spring!’ and ‘summer!’ and makes you wish for sunny days.
The wrap arrived used (worn appr. 10-15 times) and washed & ironed 2 times. It came with a linen bag so I could feel the difference.
Every linen wrap needs breaking in and this tester proves that it’s not impossible…. because it’s soft!! yay!
Let’s face it: not everyone likes to tame a beast. Wraps that are stiff and wrinkly because of the linen, where you keep doubting if it will be worth all the effort at the end (or asking yourself will it ever get softer ??)
The (unworn) bag doesn’t scare me off at all, no it’s not soft from the start, but I think it’s not one of those wraps that will stand up by themselves if you throw them in the corner.
The tester is almost perfectly broken in, it’s soft, easy to wrap with, mouldable. At least I can tell you it’s worth the effort 😉
This is a perfect summer wrap for your toddler. It’s supportive and will do great in higher temperatures.
Once it’s broken in, you can use it for your newborn too, it will be almost as soft as the all cotton Bloomyloom wraps.
It has a nice grip, after more use it will get a bit less grippy but that makes it easier to wrap with (not slippery).
Linen wraps can have some irregularities, due to the yarn. This is considered to be ‘normal’ and if you don’t like those irregularities, stay away from linen.
I love that the rails are sewn differently, this way the wrap doesn’t have a ‘wrong’ and ‘right’ side.
This tester is pretty wide with 80cm, but usually bloomyloom wraps are between 70 and 75cm post wash.
I love wider wraps, but with a little baby it’s pretty overwhelming. 70-75 is fine, even with a bigger child.
It’s hard to recommend a size for this wrap. It depends on your favourite carries. I think this will make a great shorty, for slipknot (rebozo) carries, or ruck variations like RRRR.
It’s supportive and makes a small package if you’re not wearing the wrap. This way a shorty would easily fit in your bag.
Longer sizes are great for different double hammock variations, but I think I would pick a shorty!
Just imagine this wrap on the beach, a size 2, rebozo with a slipknot. Yes, I wish it would be summer now!
(sorry, I wore it underneath babywearing coats mostly 🙁 )
