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 and Elegant
The elegant style of an Oscha ring sling is wonderful for special occasions such as christenings and weddings. They are light weight & pack up small, making for an amazing tool for the busy parent. Ring Slings are suitable from birth through to toddlerhood.
Oscha ring slings come with two shoulder options, Pleated and Gathered, to best suit your unique shape and carry style. A gathered shoulder is considered to be the best all rounder.
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?
Some patterns are directional, meaning the design has a top and a bottom. If this is the case, you will be given a ‘left-hand’ or ‘right-hand’ option. Choose left-hand if you want the rings to sit on your left shoulder and choose right-hand if you prefer the rings on your right. For non-directional patterns, a ring sling can be worn on either shoulder.
Choosing a fabric
The 2 things to consider when choosing a fabric for your sling are blend and weight, which effect how the material will feel and behave.
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.
Wraps can be worn by any size, where length of wrap determines the type of carries possible.

Oscha wraps are made from the highest quality yarns we can find, but as with any jacquard woven textiles, a little bit of care is required to keep your wrap happy. The more you wear your wrap, the softer and more flexible it will become.
Wraps have many benefits when used correctly, so follow our simple safety guide to get the most out of your sling. Make sure your baby's well supported in the sling without allowing their chin to rest on their chest. Ensure mouth and nose are clear.
We use unique patterns and weaving techniques to make baby carrying a beautiful & comfortable experience for all. Our slings are woven in the British Isles from responsibly sourced yarns & handcrafted in Scotland.
