✔ Great for newborns  ✔ Soft & strong  ✔ Plant-based yarns 

Woven on a midnight blue warp with a natural linen weft, this gorgeous new Misty Mountains fabric is speckled with the natural nubs and slubs so loved in linen yarns. The natural variation of colour along the length of these yarns gives a wonderfully textural effect as the slivery linen lightly shimmers in the light.
This lightweight linen yarn is perfect for all ages, soft with a lovely drape it will be perfect from newborn right through to toddlerhood. Strong with a touch of stretch, Misty Mountains Coldfells will quickly become buttery soft with wear.

The formidable mountain range, which cuts across Middle-earth is shown in a lovely illustrative style, with a verse sung by Thorin Oakenshield & Co. in The Hobbit™ running in runes along the borders:

Far over the misty mountains cold
To dungeons deep and caverns old
We must away, ere break of day,
To find our long-forgotten gold.

The organic cotton we use is softer and stronger than most normal cottons, produced ethically this cotton is grown with care and without chemicals keeping the land, and farmers, healthy. This lightweight wetspun linen yarn brings the strength associated with linen, but being a thinner yarn, makes this baby wrap mouldable, breathable and soft.

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.

  1. Kristin Rae

    This is my first ring sling and right out of the bag, it was soft, flexible, and gorgeous. The indigo blue positively glows. I was able to get my toddler up quickly for a test run and the sleepy dust worked its magic immediately. Thank you Oscha!
