Ancients of Gondor™ Amaurëa Ring Sling
✔ Great all-rounder ✔ Soft ✔ Temperature regulating ✔ Luxurious yarns ✔ Ethically made in Scotland
This beautiful ring sling is woven on a gentle gradation of blues that move from deep midnight tones through lighter hues to a pale, icy blue mist. What makes this baby sling truly special is its weft: alternating cashwool and natural red Peace silk blend. The silk yarn has a beautiful natural golden tone, which alternates alongside white Cashwool to give a subtle pinstriped effect. The smooth cashwool also balances out the unique nubs and slubs of the Peace silk.
This ring sling is soft, mouldable and has a great balance of grip and glide. Peace silk gets its name from the production process in which the butterfly flies away from the cocoon before it's harvested. This ethical yarn has a very low water footprint and is made from silk leftovers that would otherwise go to landfill.
Cashwool is a superfine mulesing-free merino yarn which is super soft and wonderfully breathable. It has great temperature regulating properties which means that you and your little one will stay cool in hot weather and warm in cold weather.
Ancients of Gondor Amaurëa offers good support and is suitable for use with children of all ages. It will become buttery soft with just a little wear to use with smaller babies.
By using BCI cotton we ensure that our cotton meets the Better Cotton Initiative’s high standards of environmental, economic and social responsibility. Our BCI cotton is also organic, meaning it is grown with care and without chemicals keeping the land, and farmers, healthy.
