Whinlatter Midnight Birch trees will be released on Saturday October 20th, and it is definitely a wrap one should try. It is most suitable for bigger babies and up, but I would probably have used it with my second as well from when he was a squish since I never bothered to have a pile for each kid and just used all my wraps with both. My boys are 3 years about 15 kilos and 1,5 years and about 12-13 kilos. I have used Whinlatter mostly with different DH variations and FWCC, but it is also super for a simple ruck. I will try to write a small review on it, and I hope you will get my take on it.
First of all, the colours of this wrap are amazing. All the four different linen colours make it shine like bronze and makes the perfect colour for this season. I love that no wrap is like the other making them all unique. The daaaark blue cotton almost looks like black in some lights and it complements the linen colours in a great way, making the “wrong side” mysterious and so different from the “right side”. Whinlatter is a beast at first, and yes, it’s probably still a beast after lots of wearing, but a lovely beast. It is heavy in hand, but not at all hard to wrap with. It has a lot of grip which makes it very forgiving, but it is not challenging using double layers either since the cotton side adds some glide to it. The cotton also gives the wrap some stretch which feels like nice hugs, but the linen makes it steady and it doesn’t have any significant bounce. It is, as I mentioned, a thick wrap and the knot gets really nice and big. Normally my shoulders don’t care that much for linen, but this wrap is couchy and the weave somehow makes it work. My poor shoulders didn’t scream for help once. I have it in a base, but have also used it for different ruck-variations and it is a really great toddler wrap, both as a shorty and as a base.
