Gorgeous slubby bourette silk speckles this rich navy organic combed cotton warp as our Selkies tumble and turn across this new design. Designed by Ali Yee this gorgeous pattern is inspired by the Celtic heritage of her grandmother, who was part of Clan Macfie.
Nubs and slubs from the bourette silk give this sling a magical quality as ecru and grey flecks make each sling truly unique. This 2ply bourette silk is strong, supportive and wonderfully cushy making it perfect for carrying bigger kids. This wrap may need a little love to become fully broken in, but will soon become lovely and soft with wear.
Our testers Felicia says: "Selkie Silvia is a toddlerworthy dream— strong and sturdy with a slight cush. Bourette silk has lovely texture which adds grip as well as a beautiful aesthetic"
Hand washing is recommended, although a silk cycle on a known reliable machine may be used at your own risk. Use a suitable silk detergent.
Hang to dry, avoiding direct sunlight and iron on a cool setting. It is recommended to put ring slings inside a pillow cover when washing to avoid damaging the rings.
Ring slings are around 190 - 200cm long x 70cm wide.
About Ring Slings
Woven baby slings are elegant and quick to use: perfect for short trips and for children who like to be up and down often. Packing up small and light these ring slings are an amazing tool for the busy parent.
Our baby ring slings come with two shoulder options: Pleated and Gathered.
Our unique Highland Pleated shouldered ring sling 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.
The Gathered shoulder has been widely used for some time – it 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 the wearer to spread the fabric over the shoulder for extra adjustability of the baby sling.
The choice of shoulder for your baby sling is down to personal preference, although those with narrower shoulders may prefer the Pleated option for their baby ring sling.
Oscha ring slings can be worn on either shoulder, although some directional patterns may by listed as Left Hand or Right Hand. This refers to the shoulder on which you would have the rings sitting if you wished the pattern to hang the correct way up.
Baby Slings are most commonly used for hip & front carries, although back carries with toddlers is possible. These ring slings are a popular choice for Weddings & Christenings.
All of our baby slings are woven in the British Isles from responsibly sourced yarns & handcrafted in Scotland.Delivery
