Laura is one of our customers and she has done a review to compare the sateen weave of her SMP auratiaco woven wrap and the double weave of her traditional Moorish timbre woven wrap. This comparison will hopefully will useful to anyone curious about the different weaves we offer with our woven wraps. Enjoy your read!
From the start SMP has felt like it needed more breaking in as the New Moorish so in the washing machine they went , after the wash and ironing they already became softer and a bit easier to handle.
Then the wrapping began.
SMP feels a bit thinner that makes it easier to wrap with as Moorish , but when wrapped with Moorish it sits like a house . And even with my toddler in strike I could do a bad wrapping job with New Moorish with a DH still he could not go anywhere and gave up the fight eventually and I had no trouble holding him on my back while he was trying to get out . No digging what so ever so the ultimate toddler wrap and that with 100% cotton I don t think you will find that in any other wrap.
I Love the texture of the SMP it gives so much grip so it will be easy to handle for every newbie that just started wrapping to. Compared to New Moorish that feels softer and smoother then the SMP from the beginning , but because it is thicker you will have to put some strength in it to make a nice knot.
I like to use SMP for my baby boy ,not so much for my toddler because of the sateen weave it feels thinner and with a thin shirt it will dig a bit , but maybe with a longer wrap and a DH knot and a non striking toddler it will feel different .
I took Moorish with me to the hospital when my baby boy got his groin rupture surgery and I was so glad I did we had to wait for 4 hours until the surgery that made 10 hours without him feeding because he needed to be sober for the anaesthesia don t know what I had done without this wrap I wrapped him and he fell asleep for the complete waiting time .
For the wrapping qualities of these two wraps they are both amazing wraps cannot really compare them as they are totally different in feel and weft.
With New Moorish I got a nice surprise as it was my first Non SMP wrap from Joy and Joe and I fell in love with it , it Feels soft and so strong at the same time makes you feel so safe with you baby close to your heart.
Don't think Moorish is going to leave anytime soon but I am sure that my stash will get more wraps in it of these awesome designs of Joy and Joe .
Made a promise to myself to always keep at least 1
