The weave is specially designed to allow the threads to move within its construction; this helps the cloth to mould snugly round you and your baby. Being able to get the wrap neatly and evenly tightened around you provides more support as you don’t trap sneaky pockets of slack that will work their way out and lead to sagging after a while. As the warp and weft fibres aren’t tightly meshed together they can expand into the space and remain thick and cushioning yet airy.
These properties give the wraps longevity- they are forgiving and pliable for successfully mastering those first few carries, and that quality comes into its own again when your once tiny baby is now a big hulking toddler and you need to fully support their weight with an evenly tightened, snug wrap job.
Firespiral wraps are cut and hemmed by hand by a small, local company. There are no use of automated cutting machines or industrial scale hemming machines. Instructional booklets are made using traditional methods rather than digital printing. Firespiral Baby Slings likes the handmade touch that comes from utilising time-honoured skills. Their packaging is all locally sourced, and their plastic packaging is biodegradable and recyclable.
