Set against a jet black organic cotton backdrop, this striking fabric features 6 different yarns randomly alternating across the width of the fabric including wool, Cashwool and Bourette silk, creating a gorgeous pinstripe effect. 

Sekai Cian is one of our ‘ultra eco-fabrics’ – we use up a variety of small batches of left over yarns that would otherwise be thrown away and instead make something unique and beautiful.

This fabric is soft, bouncy and has a gentle cush for the shoulders. Cashwool is a superfine mulesing-free merino yarn which is wonderfully breathable making it great for all seasons. Wool’s temperature regulating properties will keep you warm on cooler days but will also keep you cool in warm weather.

The lovely texture of this fabric gives it a good balance of grip and glide making it easy to tie. A little stretch and a touch of extra strength borrowed from Bourette silk, a beautifully soft, slubby yarn,  makes this sling perfect for carrying newborns right through to toddlerhood.

This fabric is also woven with BCI organic cotton. 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.

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. Use a suitable wool detergent. 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.
