Qualities & Care
Our cotton, linen, hemp and bamboo only needs to be washed at 30 degrees. We don’t recommend bleach as it can damage fabric.
Do not use fabric softener with your slings - it reduces the life of the fabric and makes it lose grip.
It is recommended to put ring slings inside a pillow cover when washing so the rings don’t get damaged.
We do not recommend tumble drying in our washing instructions as it decreases the life of any fabric. Having said that, running it on a low temperature can help soften and ‘break in’ your sling. Do not tumble dry bamboo.
It is a good idea to steam iron your cotton and linen slings after washing. Not only does it make them pretty and help to soften the fabric but it avoids the fabric creasing along the same lines repeatedly, which can lead to wear.
Try not to let linen dry completely if you are going to iron – linen is much easier to iron whilst damp. If you dry linen completely in the tumble dryer it may appear to have drastically shrunk. The fibres have just been compacted together and will return to normal after a quick press with an iron (and a spray of water). Using your sling will also stretch it back out again.
Silk, Wool, Cashmere
We recommend hand washing these fabrics. Run some lukewarm water into a bath or sink, add some suitable wool/silk/cashmere soap and place your sling in the water. Let it sit for a while, gently agitating the wrap, then rinse. Gently squeeze off any excess water (without wringing), roll in towels and step on it to dry further. For silk wraps, without wool in them, you can use the silk or hand wash setting on your washing machine if it has one, otherwise, hand wash. Wool and cashmere should be laid flat to dry. You should avoid drying silk in direct sunlight. They can be ironed on a very cool setting.
Your choice of wrap will depend on the type of carries you intend/prefer to use and your size and height.
A size 6 wrap is a good choice for a general use sling, which is suitable for most sizes and carries. If you have very long tails in certain carries just wrap them around your body again and tie off.
If you are buying a wrap to share and are unsure which size to buy, it is generally recommended to buy with the main user in mind. If you are carrying a toddler as opposed to a baby, you may need a slightly longer sling.
For more information, please refer to our sizing chart.
About Baby Wraps
Baby wraps, or wraparound slings, can be used to carry your baby from birth onwards. Correctly used, a wrap distributes the baby’s weight beautifully, making for an extremely comfortable, supported and snug carry.
Wraps are highly adjustable. Not only can you carry your child on your front, back and hip, in each position you have a myriad of choices about the kind of carry you want to use (see Carrying Instructions for more). This means that you can tailor your wrap exactly to suit you, yet the same sling can be adjusted for someone else too!
Although using a wrap can look intimidating at first, with a little practice you can get into the swing of things and they will become simple to use in no time. You will soon be amazing your friends and family with how quickly and easily you’ve wrapped up and soothed your baby.
Oscha slings soften beautifully with use and come with a handy bag to carry them in.
