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.
Video instructions really helped explain how to use the sling. After a couple of attempts it becomes really quick and easy. Fabric is lovely and baby is happy and comfy!
I got the eucalyptus sling and I absolutely adore the print. The sling itself is super easy to use and my baby is soo comfortable he falls asleep straight away. It has been such a help because if baby gets upset or distressed I’m able to put him in the sling and within a few minutes baby is asleep again. This has really helped me be able to get on with daily activities and take of my family. I am so happy I made this purchase and you will not regret doing so they are brilliant.
I cannot recommend this wrap enough ! I have a very demanding baby , she screams constantly I purchased this wrap feeling apprehensive.... but it actually works like a dream I can carry her around whilst being able to do my house work and it’s so light you can’t even feel it and only takes 2 seconds to put on once you know how !
We absolutely love the our sling. We also have a more structured baby carrier too but the Freerider one is so lightweight and easy to have on me to use. The fabric really is super soft and obviously the range of prints are amazing. Definitely worth investing in.
Haven't used the sling yet as my baby isn't due for another two weeks but love the material and I'm sure my baby will be comfortable. Received sling within four days of ordering. Excellent service.
