In the city of glassteel which stuck in slushy and gray off-season most of the year, we now and then keep dreaming of the sun and the rich colors, keep hiding the spring in our souls and keep wrapping up in a warm and cozy. So this spring my warm-and-cozy was the most wonderful Woven Wings Stockinette Spring Greens wrap, this is what I’m eager to tell you about.
What I want to mention first of all is that this wrap was the first and only hi-end wrap in my stash, so as for me, it is incomparable in every sense.
Woven Wings Stockinette Spring Greens — has the canvas weaving, and feels like it has been woven from young leaves and morning dew by forest fairies and elves. The wrap is delicate and the very soft, its threads are like braids made entirely of leaves and droplets, and every of them is different. I don’t know how this can possible, but I can swear — each “droplet” has its unique color.
I had counted four colors in the wrap: cream, creme-brulee, lime and petrol. It seems that there is at least a yellow color too, but in fact there is not. How did they do it? Is it double weft? Double base? It’s a magic. Sure. Really amazing work has been done here and so this wrap with its quite simple pattern creates a real magic.
I think that wrap’s density 330 g/m2 already means a lot, but I would like to mention that 9% of merino and its magical weaving adds also some comfortable elasticity to this wrap. This wrap holds a baby as a basket made of twigs (well, you remember: fairies, elves ;-)). I’ve been wearing my baby (who was weighting 11 kilos and 82 cm in height) in a single layer FWCC for two-hour walk easily without pull-ups. For the third hour I spread the wrap’s outer layers to add support. Here I want to mention the famous “narrowness” of WW wraps. Yes, the wrap is narrow — 58 cm, but no inconvenience occurred when I was wearing the wrap, even in a single-layer carry.
So here it is — WWSSG, a rare bird, which was helping me to lure the summer when it was still spring outside.
