Pellicano Baby Pastell
Combed & twisted cotton
It’s not a secret that I’m a rainbow fan. With the rainbow warp Pellicano Baby made wraps that stand out of the crowd and suit my haircolour perfectly!
I tried Zamira Vari in August and it kept me hoping to try a linen blend soon.
In the meantime there are some other designs released in a linen blend, but I haven’t tried them yet.
They also released some all cotton wraps with more gr/m2. Where zamira vari weighs 220gr/m2, pastell weighs 250gr/m2. That’s very promising if you want some more support.
After I received the wrap I gave it a wash first. I wash hoping for the wrap to fluff up a little bit, but because the pellicano wraps already arrive finished, the body of the wrap doesn’t really change with the initial wash. In hand i couldnt believe this thin wrap would really be 250gr/m2 and ‘a lot’ heavier than zamira vari. I think i’ve checked the weight a couple of times and it seemed to be right.
The wrapping feels pretty much the same as zamira vari. A little bit slippery, a smooth and thin wrap, perfect for a newborn and a great choice for hot climates. Once wrapped it surprised me and I’m happy to say it feels more supportive than zamira vari!
This is such a moldable wrap, it’s very easy to wrap with. It would be a good choice for beginners, but it’s not very forgiving so you need to tighten carefully if you don’t want to end up with the toprail digging in your shoulders or neck. If you don’t wrap neatly, you will notice it soon enough. But if you pay some attention to strand-by-strand tightening this will stay in place and won’t dig at all.
Pastell is the perfect bright rainbow. Where zamira vari was a dark rainbow, this one has a light weft which gives it a lovely soft pastell look. Not all my pictures are true to colour, but i can ensure you this wrap will be noticed!
I think it will be the perfect newborn wrap, but you can use it with your toddler too. I have worn this beauty with my youngest daughter for long walks in a double hammock and it felt very comfortable.
With a heavy (10 kg+) toddler I wouldn’t pick a rucksack carry, but even when you do so, it can be comfortable if it’s perfectly tightened.
It makes a nice small knot and I also found a candycane chestbelt very comfortable because the wrap is thin and soft.
I brought this wrap along to the dutch babywearing conference and to my babywearing consultant course in Cologne. It seems to attract a lot of attention, it’s as pretty in real life as it is in pictures.
Many mamas gave it a go and it was great to hear their thoughts. It’s one of those wraps that slide in to place without any effort.
Okay, it’s on the thinner side, but that makes it easier to handle.
This wrap doesn’t need any breaking in, it’s very soft from the start.
I’m hoping to try a linen blend soon, I’m curious to see how that compares to this wrap.
