Organic combed cotton provides a strong base for the Ice cotton weft – with just a hint of texture from the Ice cotton this sling is soft and strong and wonderfully cooling. This handmade ring sling is perfect for little ones, and good for toddlers too when using multilayer carries.

Ice cotton is an innovative yarn that, through advanced spinning technology, makes a cool to touch and breathable fabric. It is made with 100% Supima cotton (the finest American Pima cotton) with no synthetic fibers, and is free from harmful chemicals.

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.

Both of our styles are comfy, if you’re really unsure then either contact us through Messenger or email for assistance or go for the Gathered style as it is slightly more universal.

Note: All of our fabrics are weight tested up to 45lbs (or about 5 years old). 

Woven ring slings are elegant and quick to use: perfect for short trips and for children who like to be up and down often.

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.

Oscha’s comfortable baby carriers bring many wonderful benefits to parents and children. Research shows that ring slings help babies sleep as well as soothing colic and reflux, baby carriers also support breastfeeding mothers and early bonding. Learn more.
