Sshacchi demonstrating a Double Hammock Carry with this beautiful Sherwood wrap ^^^
NEW GIRASOL PRE-ORDER NOW OPEN!! Because so many people missed out on the pre-order, I have asked Girasol to weave ANOTHER batch of Sherwood and these are expected around the end of February.
The first Sherwood Girasol pre-order sold out. If you ordered before 25 November, your wrap should arrive in December.
This intricate honeycomb weave is beautiful in the dancing earthy shades of Girasol Sherwood, a design inspired by sunlight filtered through a leafy canopy. Designed by Kali Designs and brought to life by Girasol.
Named for the greenwood of the Robin Hood legends, Sherwood is all the colors of the woods through the seasons of Winter, Spring, Summer, and Autumn. The harvest hues create an ombre from brown to red, through orange, yellow, and green, with darker edges in a dusty brown belotta weft.

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.
CHOOSE THIN OR THICK (Doubleweft)
Doubleweft option only available through this weekend! Then doubleweft, as an option disappears.
Choose standard weave (thin) if you are a new wrapper or have a small baby.
Choose toddler weave (thick) only if you have already wrapped, have a toddler, and know you want an especially thick wrap.
Girasol’s Standard Weave is one of my favorite wraps to sell because it is soft, floppy, and easy to use – even for brand new wrappers. It also wraps beautifully around a newborn baby or small baby. But it is still comfortable and supportive through toddlerhood. For you wrap geeks, the fabric weight of this honeycomb weave is about 228.26 g/m² (grams per square meter).
Girasol’s Toddler Weave – or Double Weft – is a thick and super supportive weave made sturdy because it has twice as many threads running through the weave. It is excellent for toddler support for those who want the most sturdy wrap. But it is stiff brand new, and can be difficult to use until broken in so I don’t recommend it for new wrappers. It is also not very good for wrapping around newborns. The fabric weight of Sherwood double weft wraps are approximately 305 g/m² (grams per square meter).
CHOOSE TAPERED OR FRINGED ENDS
Girasol wraps are usually finished with hemmed, tapered ends on the wrap but I am able to offer you a choice between two finishes for further customization!
You can choose the hemmed, tapered ends OR you can choose to have fringe. See the pictures above
Fringe option only available through this weekend then this option disappears! If you want to get fringe, place your order for the size and thickness that you want, and then email me to let me know you would like fringe. I’ll let you know how to pay the extra $10 and I’ll make sure the weavers know to make your wrap fringed.
CHOOSE MATCHING SLING BAG
Width: 42 cm
Length: app. 43 cm
Length of strap: 155 cm
Width of strap: 19 cm
The long strap uses sling rings to adjust to whatever size you want.
The bag has two inside pockets: one is 26 cm wide, the other 16 cm. There is also a compartment for a bottle. The bag can be closed with a button, which is covered with the matching fabric, and a loop. Thanks to the long strap and the rings you can easily adjust the length of the strap.
Your bag will be made from the same material as your Sherwood wrap. In the pictures above you can see a picture of Girasol’s sling bag in the Rainbow Love design.
Girasol Sherwood is a handwoven artisan piece
This wrap was handwoven in Guatemala under fair trade practices, making it an ethical consumer choice and perfect for those who wish to support artisans.
Girasol Sherwood 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 Sherwood Girasol can be machine washed, may be ironed and occasionally – if haste is required – even dried in tumble-driers. This Girasol Sherwood is a soft and cuddly choice for wrapping your baby. It is soft brand new which makes it easier for a new wrapper to learn to use. Comfortable and safe for front, back, and hip carries for newborns through toddlers.
Girasol Sherwood – different color rails
Because of the color gradient, Sherwood Girasol 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. 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 can choose a size 5, 6, 7, 8, or 9 for full length carries (see the sizing tab) or a shorter wrap for shorter, faster carries that have fewer layers. Whichever way you go, you are sure to love the convenience of hands free comfort and a content baby!
