✔ Toddlerworthy  ✔ Strong & cushy ✔ Temperature regulating ✔ Ethically made in Scotland 

Thick in hand with a wonderful cush for the shoulders, Ivy Hedera is a dream come true for those who love woolie fabrics. Woven with luxurious Merino lambswool and Mohair tweed yarns, this fabric is an absolute must have for those living in colder climates as wool’s temperature regulating properties will keep you warm on cooler days but will also keep you cool in warm weather. This strong and supportive fabric is perfect for carrying heavier children and toddlers. 

Beautiful multicoloured flecks, a unique quality of Mohair tweed, speckle across this stunning fabric creating a lively effect. A cascade of golden and natural white ivy flows across a gorgeous forest green, cotton, backdrop evoking autumnal walks through the woods. 

Merino lambswool is a superfine mulesing-free merino yarn which is super soft and wonderfully breathable.

What is a Luxe blend?

Our exclusive Luxe blends are made from the finest, most sought after yarns available, or with more complex weave structures. These fabrics are chosen especially for their luxurious wrapping qualities and are sure to give you a truly special babywearing experience. Quality, not quantity: Luxe wraps are often more limited in number and will never be rewoven.

*Please note the top of this fabric is the XXX side, ring slings will have this side at the top if the correct left/right-hand option is chosen.

Oscha Slings are ethically handcrafted in Scotland and come with a Peace Of Mind Guarantee.

CARE INSTRUCTIONS: Hand washing is recommended, although a wool cycle on a known reliable machine may be used at your own risk. Do not use bleach. Lay flat to dry and iron on a cool setting.

Left or Right Shoulder?

As Ring Slings are worn on one shoulder, you will sometimes see an option for a left or right shoulder sling, this refers to which shoulder the rings sit on, your baby will sit on the opposite hip. For example, if you want to carry your baby on your right hip, you would need to choose a left shoulder Ring Sling. 

We have these options because some of our fabrics are directional – it means that the design has a top and a bottom. It is also because a lot of our fabrics have colour gradients. If you choose your preferred shoulder this will ensure that the pattern is placed correctly and/or that the preferred colour is at the top when you are wearing the sling. 

Most people will choose the side of the arm they would like to have free as the baby will sit on the opposite hip and restrict your use of that arm somewhat. Imagine holding a baby, which hip do you want to place them on? If it is on your left hip then choose a right shouldered sling and vice versa.

All of our Ring Slings can be worn on either shoulder and we always recommend moving it from side to side regularly to keep your body in balance. Selecting the shoulder side just allows you to have the fabric sitting the way you’d like it on your dominant side.

Highland Pleat or Gathered?

Highland Pleat: This unique shoulder style has been exclusively designed by Oscha. The material is folded and stitched into the pleated shoulder, this means the fabric takes up less space on your shoulder.

Gathered: Widely used in the babywearing community, this style is less structured than the Pleated shoulder meaning it is worn pulled down over your shoulder.

The main difference between the two styles is how the fabric sits on and around your shoulder. The Highland Pleat shoulder has a little more padding and takes up less space on your shoulder, while the Gathered shoulder takes up more space and can be spread right down the top of your arm. While the Pleated shoulder gives much more freedom of movement, the Gathered shoulder allows you to spread the fabric more.
