Vanamo Ahven Vire woven wrap contains 70 % Merino wool and 30 % Bourette silk. The grey silk mixed with black and natural creme wool make the classic herringbone pattern pop! Bourette silk is very lively and bumpy, and it gives a lovely texture for the wrap. Merino wool is superwash quality, soft and not itchy at all!
The Vanamo Ahven baby wrap combines all the good qualities of natural silk and wool. Wool gives the wrap softness, fluffyness and a great bounce - small amount of silk on the other hand makes the wrap a little more solid. Silk and wool help keeping you and baby comfortable in both hot and cold conditions. They absorb great amount of moisture and direct moist away from your body keeping the skin dry.
The Ahven weave is diagonally elastic and the baby wrap gives optimum support for the baby and feels comfortable for both the wearer and the child. The weight of the wrap is about 270 g/m2. This medium weight wrap is lovely for babies of all ages and small toddlers as well. If you love the feeling of wool wraps, you might want to try this one for a heavy toddler, too. Wool-silk wraps are very soft already when new and they are good to go after the first washing and ironing!
"Ahven" is a Finnish word for a perch fish and it is the perfect name for this lovely weave. Herringbone weave works great for baby wraps because it is easy to tie and molds well around the carrier and child. The weave is also quite porous and airy.
