It was really nice to use this certainly high quality Oscha Ancients of Gondor Mallorn wrap. Not yet washed and not used at all the wrap feels very soft, comfortable to wear it right on the naked body. My experience of ‘communicating’ with a well worn-linen from Oscha tells me that after washing, and a dozen of carries you can safely put a three months old baby in it. And famous carrying abilities of Oscha’s linen allow you to stay pleased when your squish becomes a weighty Toddler (12 kilos of my ‘personal’ Toddler felt absolutely weightless).
55% organic cotton
The combination of linen with Tencel gives excellent thermoregulation, the wrap is not ‘hot’, but relatively tight, not loose. Bounce has not been noticed by me: the wrap belongs to the category of “both nailed and keeps”. By the way, it keeps the carry with the one knot, although I haven’t noticed some any palpable relief of wrap’s pattern – apparently it has tenacity because of interweaving of threads of different thicknesses.
Rainbow gradation is made up of warm and bright colors. The direction of gradation allowed me to put the wrap on only one side up. Outfit of this wrap is surely going to win husbands and children hearts. It is splashy, going to be the star of your outfit and requires careful selection of clothes. And certainly it looks like a fashion accessory.
And finally it will surely be adored by Tolkien admirers. If you know who are elves, where the Shire is and who are hobbits, you really need this wrap!
