Vanamo Kide Keijukainen is a special hemp blend that was custom made for a Finnish babywearing group. A stunning mixture of turquoise green linen, night blue and baby blue hemp! Black warp made of organic cotton brings out the beautiful Kide pattern and deepens the colors.
The cotton-hemp Vanamo woven wrap is cool and airy for the summer, but you can enjoy using it during all seasons. Kide weave is diagonally elastic which means that the baby wrap gives optimum support for the baby and feels comfortable for both the wearer and baby. Hemp and linen offer extra strength for this wrap making it the perfect baby carrier for heavier babies and toddlers. A new hemp wrap can feel quite stiff and even rough at first but it will become softer and more moldable with using and wearing.
The word ”kide” means ice chrystals and the Kide pattern was inspired by the traditional hand woven Finnish linen textiles. The Kide weave is a complex mixture of twill and tabby weaves which create the unique stuctured, porous and comfortable weave. Kide pattern is designed by textile designer Katja Hynninen.

How to care for your Vanamo wrap: Machine wash in warm water (40 celcius), hang dry, iron with medium heat. Ironing while still a little damp or use steam. Tumble dryer (with low heat) can be used occasionally and it will speed up the softening process, but please keep in mind that tumble drying will also wear out the fabric faster.
PLEASE NOTICE! We recommend washing the wrap before starting to use it. The weave will tighten up and obtain the final dencity & thickness. Each wrap includes some extra length to compansate shrinking.
