100% organic cotton
At a local sling meet I tried a Fraulein Hübsch wrap for the first time, I knew the brand because of the carriers but I didn’t know they also produce wraps now.
The wraps are produced in Austria and are made with 100% organic cotton.
I have ‘Mehndi’ and stars (‘Sterne türkis-grau), this review applies to both because they have similar wrapping qualities.
Mehndi has a ornamental design in anthracite and white, it looks very nice. I love the fact that the rails have different colours, this way you can easily tell the rails apart which can be a big help if you’re new to wrapping (or trying complicated carries) 🙂
The rails are very narrow, compared to other brands like Oscha and Fidella. The wrap itself measures 65cm in width. This is narrower than most other brands I own, but I didn’t have any problems with getting a good (deep) seat with my little girl, so it’s not TOO narrow.
After washing and ironing it got softer, but it took some wrapping/wearing before it felt broken in. I’ve used Mehndi a lot and you can feel the difference between Mehndi and the stars (with the stars being not as soft as Mehndi is). These wraps are thin, but supportive. I have both in a size 4, used them in RRRR, Rucksack carry and some other 2 or single layer carries. My favorite carry with Mehndi is a RRRR with a candy cane chestbelt, or if I’m in a hurry I pick a simple ruck.
With my little girl it’s still comfortable when I didn’t wrap very carefully, but with my heavy (15kg) toddler I need to pay attention to spreading the wrap on my shoulders and I prefer 2layer carries with this wrap. I’m writing this review with my youngest girl (9.5kg) in a imperfect rucksack carry, sleeping on my back. My shoulders don’t hurt, the wrap doesn’t dig in my shoulders.
Mehndi is easy to wrap with, I would say it’s suitable for a newborn and will still be comfortable if your baby is getting bigger and learning to walk. It wouldn’t be my pick for a pre-schooler/toddler. Mostly because of the width (with my big girl I prefer 68cm+). It’s a good choice for a beginner because of the different top and bottom rail colour. It’s a great wrap for summer, thin and light!
I’ve used Mehndi more because I love the completely different sides. It’s great for my video tutorials!
