F&H Fibres and their Wrapping Qualities
Please note most of the fibre qualities here have been described from wraps with a Cotton or Cottolin warp. e.g. Cotton + Tencel or Cotton +Rose/Silk
Cottons: soft, bandage like, grippy, good all rounder
Tencel: soft, drapes well, shiny, smooth, passes easily when tying, eco-friendly
Bamboo: very soft, smooth, glides easily, shiny, temperature regulating, good for sensitive skin. Some wearers say it isn’t strong for larger babies/children but I think it depends on the fibre it is paired with!
Banana Silk: textured, shiny, soft, bandage like
Merino/Tencel Blend: soft, wool like, gives a ‘bounce’ to the wrap, smooth, bandage like.
Cotton/Linen Blend: strong, floppy (though may need use to get like this), grippy, soft but firm, ideal for bigger babies/children. Feel/drape will improve with age
Rose/Silk: soft, wool like, gives a 'bounce' to the wrap, smooth, bandage like
Nettle/Silk: rustic feel, soft but strong, can have small nubs
Cotton/Cashmere: coming soon
Tussah Silk: coming soon
Camel Hair: coming soon
