Ring slings are elegant and are often used for special occasions such as Christenings and weddings. They are quick to use, especially handy for short trips from the car to shop, or for a child that wants up and down a lot. They are also light and pack up small.
We offer two shoulder styles - Our original Highland Pleat Shoulder mimics the pleat work from the Kingussie kilt, which is one of the oldest styles and is unique in utilising both box and knife pleats. Symmetrical pleats move away from the centre of the sling to ensure an even distribution of the baby's weight whilst moulding easily around the wearer's shoulder, for an elegant look.
The Gathered Ring Sling Shoulder has been widely used by babywearers for quite some time now and is a tried and tested favourite. This shoulder style is relatively unstructured as the fabric is gathered directly through the rings with no folds, this allows you to spread and move the fabric very easily and is ideal for those who like to cap the fabric over their shoulder.
The choice of shoulder style is personal preference, although some people feel that those with narrower shoulders prefer the pleated style.
Oscha ring slings can also be worn on either shoulder. We do have some directional patterns, which means they will hang upside down if worn on the opposite side. In this case, select left or right hand according to which side you want the rings to sit on.
We include an instruction brochure with each sling, please take time to study this and practice as ring slings are extremely comfy and easy to use but it can take a little time and some adjustment to hit the sweet spot!
