What is a Baby Wrap?
Oscha wraps are a long length of intricately woven fabric specially designed to carry your child.
Being fully adjustable, they offer the most comfortable & snug fit allowing you to carry for longer.
With an infinite number of carries possible, baby wraps are great for carrying children of all ages.
Choosing the right wrap
There are 3 main things to consider when choosing a wrap for you and your child: Wrap Size, Fabric Blend & Fabric Weight.
Wraps are available from sizes 2-8, where larger sizes signify longer lengths of material. The right length will depend on your size, height and the carry you wish to use. A size 6 wrap is a good choice for general use, which is suitable for most sizes and carries.
Different fabric compositions (yarns) have different qualities, including softness, grippiness and glide. Your choice of blend will also affect how warm/cool the wrap is. Some wraps are made from 1, 2 or even 3 different yarns. A 100% Cotton wrap is generally considered to be a good all-rounder.
GSM (Grams per Square Metre) is an indication of the weight and density of a wrap. The density of a wrap can affect how the wrap ties & feels when worn; breathability, warmth, ease of tying & grip. A density of between 230gsm and 280gsm is widely considered to be a medium weight.
Oscha wraps are made from the highest quality yarns we can find, but as with any jacquard woven textiles, a little bit of care is required to keep your wrap happy. The more you wear your wrap, the softer and more flexible it will become.
Wraps have many benefits when used correctly, so follow our simple safety guide to get the most out of your sling. Make sure your baby's well supported in the sling without allowing their chin to rest on their chest. Ensure mouth and nose are clear.
We use unique patterns and weaving techniques to make baby carrying a beautiful & comfortable experience for all. Our slings are woven in the British Isles from responsibly sourced yarns & handcrafted in Scotland.
