Girasol Rainbow Baby is a unique artisan piece, as it is handwoven on traditional looms in Guatemala and EXTRAS ARE NOW LISTED 🙂
A brand new design created for me by the amazing Kalleigh Designs, this is a true rainbow made to celebrate the babies that bring light and color back into our lives after a loss. And it’s just a stunning rainbow to wrap any baby!
CHOOSE WEFT COLOR
The rainbow stripes in the Rainbow Baby design are called “warp threads” and they are the most prominent colors.
The weft are the threads that run across the warp threads, going over and under the warp. In the Rainbow Baby pictures above, the warp runs right to left and the weft runs up and down. The weft color has a more subtle effect on the wrap, changing the tint of the rainbow striped warp threads.
Rainbow Baby is woven with a twill weave which means the weft is very subtle and the solid rainbow stripes are plain. It means the colors of the rainbow are bolder.
This graphic will help you identify your base size – the wrap length you would use for full length carries.
You can choose to get your base size for the widest range of carries, or a shorter length for shorter carries with fewer layers. 2 sizes smaller than your base size is a good size for still having a lot of options if you prefer less fabric.
Or get any size you prefer.
Girasol Rainbow Baby is easy to use and care for
This wrap is 100% cotton so it is easy to care for and does not need babying. The Girasol Rainbow Baby wrap can be machine washed, may be ironed and occasionally – if haste is required – even dried in tumble-driers.
Girasol Rainbow Baby– different color rails
Because of the rainbow stripes, Rainbow Baby makes it easy to keep track of your rails – meaning that you always know which side of the wrap is which and can tell if it had become twisted.
You can wrap with either the Reds on top or the Violet, and can see whether the wrap has been twisted by whether that color remains on top as you bring it around your body. This helps you get a smooth and even wrap carry that will stay comfortable for hours with even heavy toddlers!
Woven Wraps Compared to Other Baby Carriers
Woven wraps are the best way to carry your baby close from newborn through toddler so you never have to size up and they never outgrow it!
They are always a custom fit so there’s no adjustments when a different caregiver needs to use it or when your baby grows. No attachments or accessories, no buckles or weight bearing seams – just beautiful hand-woven fabric for the most comfort and versatility.
You are sure to love the convenience of hands free comfort and a content baby!
