Poe Woven Herringbone Lake
Width: approximately 26″ or 66cm
Poe Wovens started as Poésie Tissée in the summer of 2013. In 2014 the business evolved which leaded into rebranding (and renaming) the brand.
The wraps are 100% made in the USA, even the packaging came with a sticker ‘made in the USA’ and some maple leaf candy from Vermont. Very nice!
The mission statement says they want to
”support the local economy by consistently producing exquisite quality woven baby wraps in stunning designs, from locally sourced natural fibers, without compromising social or environmental consciousness.”
About this wrap: the name says it all. Herringbone is the pattern, a classic pattern which you might recognize from the Didymos Lisca wraps. The herringbone pattern is a pointed twill weave where the zigzag isn’t continuous (where a chevron weave has continuous lines forming a ‘V’). The colourway is called lake because of the lake blue weft.
Compared to Didymos Lisca this wrap feels a bit thicker, but still medium weight (not thick at all!!). It’s less soft and has much less ‘glide’, it has a nice grip. The herringbone pattern gives it a nice stretch, with a perfect bounce. Not too much and definitely more supportive than my Lisca.
With 66cm the wrap is more narrow than most other brands, but I didn’t notice this when wrapping.
The pattern is very daddy-proof, I loved it as a everyday wrap. It’s subtile and suits almost every outfit.
Herringbone Lake is very comfortable on your shoulders, even in a single layer carry with a heavier child.
This wrap is suitable for a newborn (soft!) and will last until your baby starts walking (and beyond!).
I think it will make a great shorty, perfect for slipknot carries.
Although it has a nice grip, making a high backpass isn’t very hard. No struggles when learning a new carry.
This wrap is an all-rounder, not only for newbie wrappers, but also an experienced babywearer will appreciate this herringbone weave wrap.
The blend (all cotton) makes it easy to care for, which means you can just drag the tails through the mud when you’re wrapping outside & throw it in the washing machine when you get home.
I could call it a working horse, but somehow I usually use this term for wraps that can handle some mud-dragging and need some breaking in. This wrap won’t need a lot of breaking in, it softens up quickly!
Herringbone Lake is sold out, but there are still some other colourways available at the Poe wovens website.
You can keep an eye on their Facebook page too, for information on upcoming releases, colourways and designs.
