A review of the J&J blackberry ripple woven wrap by Debi (the babywearingmac blog)
I was surprised how soft the wrap felt straight from new, it has a good stretch making the wrap very mouldable to you and your baby. At first I compared it to a Little Frog Sandy agate but I find it much softer than this, most likely down to the special mechanism whilst weaving. My wrapee wasn’t willing at first as she was teething, but once up I found it easy to use starting off with a ruck then a reinforced ruck and finally a RRRR (see Rucking Marvellous for tutorials). The wrap felt good on my shoulders, I didn’t feel there was a lot of pull and unlike some wraps it was easy to finish my double knot first time. We also used it as blanket to snug in at nap time and to make the dinner later that day. With multi pass carries the wrap works well on chillier days, whilst being lightweight has a slight thickness about it, I also liked how the wrap was wider than the norm, this made making my seat much easier and making a good deep seat which is very important to myself as I find my LO sleeps better with a deeper seat and that she is supported in our carry.
From Joy&Joe ltd: Thank you so much Debi for the review, looking forward to your views on the maxi-roses woven wrap too. Cheers
