TENCEL™Made with 100% Tencel fabric, guaranteeing a level of quality we’re proud to put our name to. Produced from wood pulp from sustainably managed tree farms, the fibres are compostable and biodegradable, with a much lower carbon footprint than traditional fabrics.
Lightweight and breathableLight as a feather and incredibly breathable, absorbing 70% more moisture than cotton for a drier sleeping environment (that’s for the baby, but you’re welcome to sleep in it too, Mum). The absorbency makes it almost impossible for any bacteria to grow on the fibre making it more hygienic than other fabrics.
Lasting softnessSofter than silk, our baby slings have a satin-smooth finish, ensuring comfort for the most sensitive skin. Tencel fibres are known to last longer and withstand repeated wash cycles compared to cotton, meaning our wraps won’t rub, chafe, or lose their hold while you’re wearing them. The softness will last until you don’t need us anymore - and even after that!

You can absolutely do it
Tying your baby sling is like tying your shoelaces, after a couple of goes it will become second nature. The more you try it, the better the fit. Check out our how-to video below.
“Love the wrap”
“I wish I’d had one with my first. Very easy to put on and feels very secure.”
“Love the freedom it gives”
“This has transformed my days alone with the two kids. Baby sleeps on me & hands are free for the toddler”
“It's so easy”
“Our expensive pram hasn't had a look in. My baby is so happy in it next to me.”
Better Bonding & Less Crying
During the early stages of your baby's life, being close to a parent is essential. It's been proven that babies that are held by parents have reduced anxiety and are able to develop quicker in the early months, mentally and emotionally. Plus studies show carried babies cry 43% less. Game changer.
Buttersoft Fabric For Endless Comfort
Produced from 100% Tencel™, the highest quality fabric in babywearing. Fits to your individual body shape and distributes baby's weight perfectly. The result? Cloud like comfort for both you and baby all day long. (And none of the back pain that comes with other carriers!)

Why is the no.1 choice for sustainability
- TENCELTM vs Viscose
- TENCELTM vs Cotton
- TENCELTM vs Organic Cotton
TENCELTM vs Viscose
There is virtually no waste from the process of making Tencel as more than 99% of the water and solvents used are recycled through the same process over and over again.
The solvents used to make standard viscose are not as friendly :( and not recycled, the waste is often dumped into our rivers and its emissions into our air
TENCELTM vs Cotton
Tencel uses very little water and land mass in its production in comparison to Cotton.
The excessive usage of water and land is the main environmental criticism of cotton production.The fibre yield of Tencel is also much greater for every 1 cotton shirt, 10 Tencel shirts can be made.
TENCELTM vs Organic Cotton
Many organic cotton products start from an organic cotton field, but during production many chemicals are used which no longer makes the fiber organic. Unless it is GOTS certified (like our organic cotton in our triangle bras), harmful chemicals may still be present in the production process. Only one non-toxic organic solvent is is used to make Tencel.
A little fiddly at first, I found watching a YouTube video more helpful than the pictures personally. Baby is close and snug-which he loves. Baby is long for his age and sits very high up- feeling like he’s squishing my throat sometimes and hard to put the strap o er to support his head. something to bare in mind if you have a long baby before they can move to the next position.
Love, love, LOVE my Freerider sling!
A friend lent me a sling of a different brand to try and I loved wearing a sling but it was a super stretchy material and baby would slide down leaving me with horrendous back pain! So I went searching for another sling and came across Freerider. I read some great reviews and placed my order and I was not disappointed! It’s perfect! Beautiful material, so comfortable for me and baby and so secure! I have a 5 week old who is only happy napping on me and this allows me to get out for walks and get the housework done whilst carrying baby around hands free. Freerider has saved my back and my sanity! Thank you! X
Lovely sling in such a soft fabric. Great customer service who answered my questions really quickly!
I’m in love with our almond sling. You can see it in our instagram @la_luizaa xx
Absolutely love the quality of my new sling! Baby due in March and this was on my must have list! Really easy to put on, I just can’t wait for my baby to be here and in the sling! It’s going to allow for lots of precious comfortable skinonskin time, and also super fashionable for when we are out and about!
I can’t wait to share some pictures!
