This week's message:

I plan to reopen on the morning of August 4, rather than the evening of Aug. 3 as I had previously announced (I think this will make it easier for people to get orders in, and will allow me to keep a better eye on the numbers). I will be requesting that orders be placed only by those who do not already have a sling they can use, so that people without a sling have a chance to get an order in. Because I'd like to take a break with my kids before school starts again, I will be capping orders at no more than 250 slings -- I have had almost no time to just be with and enjoy my children this summer, and they need me, too.

I will be posting regular updates about the precise time I will reopen the store on my Facebook page. If you "like" my page on Facebook you can get them easily, and if you select "get notifications", Facebook will tell you when I post, which is likely the best way to get reminders. Otherwise, you can always refresh the home page here and check the Facebook feed in the lower right to see what I've posted.

While the store is closed, the "add to cart" button has been removed to keep new orders from being placed. (Clicking "next" will just take you to the next product, not the next step in ordering.)


Basic fabric slings are best for everyday, frequent use. Simple and sophisticated or colorful and bold, these fabrics are lovely unadorned, or you can add a tail accent to spice things up a little.

Key to symbols:
Soft and snuggly for newborns: soft and snuggly for newborns (8-20 lbs) Best for 8-28 lbs: best for babies (8-28 lbs) Suitable for heavy babies and toddlers: suitable for babies and toddlers (8-35 lbs)
Good for cold weather: good for cold weather Good for hot weather: good for hot weather
Please note: every wearer will have her/his own weight tolerance. The slings will hold up to at least 35 lbs, but your own body may not.

100% linen

Linen may just be the best sling fabric there is. Before cotton was widely cultivated, linen was the go-to fabric for just about everything -- daily wear, bedclothes, accessories... if it was sewn, it was made with linen. It's strong, supportive, long-wearing, and is especially terrific for hot climates. [more]

French twill

100% cotton, brushed on one side for strokable softness; the other side is smooth and almost like sateen, with a slight sheen. Its light weight makes it ideal for warmer climates, while giving it a drape one doesn't usually find in twills. [more]

Stretch cotton twill

97% Cotton, 3% Spandex. The spandex gives it a very slight stretch across the width, which adds a bit of a "hug" without adding any bounce. The result is a supportive, comfortable fabric that's terrific for newborns to toddlers.
