Yaro Slings Pomegranate
By now you all might know Yaro Slings as a European brand that features a size 6 for €49 (some designs or materials will be a bit more expensive).
I wrote a review on Yaro Slings ‘Shah’, ‘turtle’ and ‘leaves’ a while ago, all 100% cotton wraps. Now I’ve received a tester with wool and one with bourette silk.
These blends will be more expensive (this one with wool costs 95 euro for a size 6).
I love the fact that Yaro is adding some blends to their product range. I love a woolie for the winter and due to the temperature regulating qualities wool is also great for higher temperatures!
If you haven’t tried a wrap with wool yet, you might think that it will be like that itchy sweater your grandma gave you long ago….. No, wool can be soft, cozy and very comfortable!
This Yaro feels less woolie than I’m used to. It doesn’t have a hairy feeling, no itch and is surprisingly smooth for a wrap with animal hair.
It also has less bounce than other wool wraps I’ve tried. This makes it more supportive and a great choice for heavier children too.
The label says handwash, but it survived the wool washing program on my washing machine without any problems. No need to be scared of washing your woolie, just make sure you don’t agitate it.
A high temperature combined with movement can cause felting. High spin & 40°C wash won’t be my recommendation, but most washing machines have a wool program with low spin (or no spin) for wool.
Never put a woolie in the dryer. (Some ‘superwash’ woolies will be fine, but otherwise: NEVER!)
I lay my wool wraps flat to dry (on towels).
Back to the wrap: the white colour looks almost silver and has a nice shimmer. The marine looks more green than blue to me, a perfect dark winter colour.
I’ve tested a size 6, but I would say this wrap will do great in every size. It’s supportive enough for one layer carries and will make a nice shorty.
It’s suitable for both newbie and experienced wrappers, it’s easy to wrap with and has a nice width (76cm) for bigger kids.
This is a wrap that can last from newborn up to the end of your wearing days. With my 15kg+ 3,5 year old I prefer multi layer carries but with my youngest (almost 2) a rucksack was still fine.
The wool provides a nice cush on the shoulders, which makes the wrap more forgiving. Sloppy wrapjobs will still be comfortable.
I love how Yaro offers affordable wraps that are definitely not less comfortable. A nice starter wrap, but it also won’t disappointed a more experienced babywearer.
There are still some wraps with wool available at the retailers, you can find a list of the retailers at their Facebook page.
