Baby wrap care

Our baby wraps will arrive unfinished and will need a couple of washes before using.

Please do not use the wrap before washing, the fabric needs to settle by washing, drying and ironing.

  • Please follow washing instructions on the attached label.
  • Use only a little liquid detergent without any optical whitener. Do not use softener.
  • For blends with wool, silk and cashmere, we recommend hand wash. Let it dry flat.
  • Do not tumble dry your wrap, though tumbling a dry wrap at low temperature will make it soft and fluffy.
  • (Steam) ironing your wrap will help, but please use low heat when ironing silk.

If you have any questions with regard to wrap care, please do not hesitate to contact us.
