Seolta Fraoch Ring Sling
This product is currently out of stock and unavailable.
Presenting a beautiful new handwoven collaboration with Fiona Daly. This is a very thick, blankety sling weighing over 370gsm. Yet it utilises very fine yarns and incredibly intricate patterns, including bands of pattern work along the borders and across the width. This is the original tester run and so prices have been reduced accordingly.
This cloth is handwoven by Fiona in her studio in Edinburgh on a 16 shaft manual dobby loom, taking 7 hours per metre to weave. Patterns are inspired by traditional Shetland patterns and geometric designs.
Fabric content : 60% Merino wool and 40% organic cotton. 1 size 5, 1 size 2 and 1 ring sling were woven.
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.

Whether you want a sling for a newborn or a carrier for a 1-year-old and beyond, our eco-friendly ring slings are a great choice. Packing up small and light our beautiful baby slings are an amazing tool for the busy parent.
Our stylish ring slings come in two shoulder options: Highland Pleated and Gathered.
Highland Pleated: 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. Those with narrower shoulders may prefer this option.
Gathered: Widely used on ring slings � it is a tried and tested favourite. This shoulder style is less structured with the fabric is gathered around the rings with no pleats, allowing the wearer to spread the fabric over the shoulder for extra adjustability.
Oscha's handmade ring slings can be worn on either shoulder, although some directional patterns may be 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.
