What is a Ring Sling?
Ring slings are made from a length of intricately woven fabric, secured on the shoulder through a set of rings. Quick to use, they are perfect for carrying your child on short trips and for children who like to be up and down often.
Lightweight & Elegant
The elegant style of an Oscha ring sling is wonderful for special occasions such as christenings and weddings. They are lightweight & pack up small, making for an amazing tool for the busy parent. Ring slings are suitable from birth through to toddlerhood.
The Oscha ring slings have been approved by the International Hip Dysplasia Institute as a ‘Hip Healthy’ product, this means it will hold your child in the ‘M’ position which is optimum for hip development.
Oscha ring slings come with two shoulder options, Pleated and Gathered, to best suit your unique shape and carry style.
Our unique Highland Pleated shoulder was exclusively developed by Oscha, inspired by the Kingussie Kilt with its use of both box and knife pleats, it ensures an even distribution of weight and a streamlined aesthetic. Often the best option for those with narrower shoulders.
The Gathered shoulder is widely used and is a tried and tested favourite. This shoulder style is less structured than the Pleated shoulder as the fabric is gathered directly through the rings with no folds, allowing you to spread the fabric over the shoulder for better weight distribution & adjustability.
Left or Right?
Ring slings are most commonly used for hip and front carries, although back carries with toddlers are possible.Learn How
Different fabric compositions (yarns) have different qualities, including softness, grippiness and glide. Your choice of blend will also affect how warm/cool your sling is. Some slings are made from 1, 2 or even 3 different yarns. A 100% Cotton sling is generally considered to be a good all-rounder.
GSM (Grams per Square Metre) is an indication of the weight and density of a sling. The density of a sling can affect how the wrap ties & feels when worn; breathability, warmth, ease of tying & grip. A density of between 230gsm and 280gsm is widely considered to be a medium weight.
