Spotlight on Carriers – February – Size 4 Woven Wrap

Woven wraps come in various sizes from size 2 to size 8. This chapter will cover a size 4 woven wrap. Note that sizes that are larger can also do many of the carries featured, just they will have excessive “tail”. A size 4 is usually 3.6 meters long.

Fabrics

Woven wraps come in several different fabric blends. These are usually 100% cotton, silk/cotton, linen/cotton, wool/cotton, cashmere/cotton, and hemp/cotton. They can have different percentages, such as 50% woven cotton and 50% silk, ect. Something with silk, would be “slippery”, thinner and soft, where as something made with linen would be thicker. DIY wraps are usually Osnaburg or 100% cotton.

Carries

These are some videos of carries you can do with a woven wrap. Please note, especially when using back carries, these should not be tried with stretch wraps even of the same lengths.
