Following the commencement of the travelling of our two SL tester wraps, we have enjoyed reading your reviews so far, admiring your beautiful actions photos and closely listening to your feedback.
As the travelling of our tester wraps continues, we will be making some adjustments to the final teaching wraps based on your suggestions while continuing to focus on producing a very high-end quality teaching SL wrap.
Our happy faces teaching wrap was woven using the same luxurious weave as our FOL but the weave was simplified to reduce weft floats so that it will be easier for new babywearers to maintain. Our FOL weave itself took approximately 12 months to be developed by our team of textile experts and you can tell from the wrapping quality of our happy faces that the wool-like soft handle and worsted drape is a very unique to Joy and Joe.
The following are some of the proposed changes based on your feedback so far
1: The vertical stripes will be adjusted to become horizontal stripes.
2: The top and bottom rails will be more defined by using a different colour for each of them.
3: Reducing the spaces between the happy faces in our design and this can be used to help beginner wrappers understand 'strand-by-strand' tightening
4: Making longer sizes available. Please note that our current tester sizes are only samples. We are yet to weave the final teaching wraps which explains why we couldn't make variable/longer sizes available at the start of this testing process. However, longer sizes will be available and shorter ones will also be made available on request.
Please note that our teaching wraps are not going to be sold the conventional way our other wraps are sold. Instead, it will be loaned out to you with a fee of only £60 and this will be refunded to you in FULL (only excluding your shipping fees) when you return your wrap in good condition so that other libraries can benefit from re-using and enjoying the same wrap.
We are constantly working hard to make our slings more delightful to use. We would love your input and your thoughts on how we can make our teaching wraps perfect for sling librarians. Please let us know by completing our poll below. Remember that from the beginning of this year 2015, a weaving loom was set aside, solely dedicated to the weaving of our new woven wraps. So the possibilities of our product development are endless.
You can tell us the colour ways that you would like us to weave and also vote on the proposed amendments. We will announce a date for the pre-order of our teaching wraps and this is so that we get a good idea of the number of sling libraries that would like to have our teaching wraps.
Please don't forget that with our other wraps, we have a fantastic 35% discount for sling libraries and baby-wearing groups with the code 'DEMO' and this covers our new trillusion, feathers and SMP wraps etc. Sling libraries with their special discount codes for their sling library parents can also continue to benefit from that scheme. We are also introducing some newer colours for our new quality stretchy wraps. Please sign up to our newsletters for more updates.. Thank you so much xx
