Deep in the Scandinavian forest blooms the small and delicate twinflower (Linnea borealis). Vanamo Kide Linnea is a bold combination of bright spring green & hot pink. A small amount of grey gives a calming & softening effect on the colour. The blend: 25 % of linen is just perfect to make this wrap strong and supportive. The fabric will also soften up quickly along wearing and using. Vanamo ring slings are ecological and ethically produced from pure natural materials & carefully hand sewn in our own work room.
Vanamo Ring sling is a great baby carrier for situations where you want to get the baby quickly into the carrier but the time of carrying does not necessarily take very long. The ring sling is easy to put on and adjusting takes only little time once you have learned to do it properly. Ring slings are a great help for caring newborn babies. Breastfeeding is also fairly easy with the ringsling. Vanamo ring sling works equally well with toddlers, too: for quick ups and downs. Toddlers want to explore the world but often they become tired and can't walk very long. Ring sling is easy to take along for day trips and shopping, or keep one in a car just in case.
Although the cotton-linen Vanamo sling is cool and airy for the summer, the ring sling can very well be used 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. This is quite a thick sling and it's perfect for heavier babies and toddlers. A new linen sling can feel a little stiff at the beginning but the fabric will softern up quite quickly by washing, ironing 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. After the first washing the fabric will fluff up and the unique texture appears.
Vanamo ring slings are carefully handmade by the local seamstress. We use high quality & strong sewing thread and the rings are secured with three rows of stitches. Large aluminium sling rings are specially made for baby slings and tested.
The shoulder of Vanamo ring slings is a hybrid type or partially folded: small fanned pleats are on each side of the sling and the center part is left unfolded. This allows you to adjust the width of the sling to fit perfectly on your shoulder. You can wear the sling wide over your shoulder and upper arm or gather the fabric on top of your shoulder, when needed.
