WHICH MAY BE RIGHT FOR YOU!
Chambray is a term to describe how the fabric is made. Chambray is two colors of yarn woven together to create a fabric. WildBird features a 100% Linen Chambray as well as a blend of 55% Linen and 45% Cotton. Chambray gives fabric beautiful color variations throughout because the yarn is dyed before it is woven. This gives each thread line a unique shade of color which adds some dimension to the fabric. Our Chambrays come crisp right out of the box, but break in beautifully with use.
Simply said...we love the look of Chambray!
DOUBLE LAYER //
Both the single layer and double layer slings are great for babies and toddlers up to 35 pounds. Single layer slings are light, cool and breathable. Typically people prefer single layers for newborns and smaller children. Double layer slings are thicker and heavier. Each one has two layers of fabric. With that thickness comes lots of extra support and comfiness, allowing parents to wear their children at heavier weights and/or for longer periods of time.
The double layers take a little bit longer to break in, but once done, they achieve the soft nature of a single layer.
Our solids are all 100% Linen. Linen is a completely natural woven fabric made from the flax plant. Flax fibers are extremely durable and when woven into Linen become extremely strong. Known to be the world’s strongest natural fiber, Linen lasts a very long time and will never lose its shape. New Linen has a slight crispiness to it, but with time and use it becomes buttery soft.
Linen is highly recommended for children and adults due to its non-allergic features and great microclimate for skin. Linen is amazingly suitable for hot Summer climates because of its cooling and refreshing effect. On the other hand, it has a warming effect in Winter. Flax absorbs sudden temperature changes and has outstanding moisture absorbance. Linen also reduces radiation impact by half and protects from harmful ultraviolet radiation.
There's no wonder why it was our first choice for our slings.
Our Bamboo fabric is a mix of 45% bamboo and 55% linen. Known for its hypoallergenic and antimicrobial properties, bamboo is also highly absorbent and wicks moisture away from the skin. The bamboo fiber itself is filled with tiny gaps that improve ventilation in warm weather and provide insulation in the cold.
Bamboo has a super soft, silky feel right out of the box with a beautiful drape as it hangs from the rings. We love the way it pairs perfectly with the more solid, crisp linen, contributing stretch and moldability for the perfect fit!
