Bijou WCRS

Bijou wraps are woven in the US from planet-friendly yarns like Eco2cottonŽ (recycled fibers from the production process) and Tencel (long a favorite at SBP). With a dense weave and lovely jacquard-woven patterns, these wraps made into ring slings are a stellar choice for heavier babies and toddlers, but are still soft and giving enough for your newborn.



If you have concerns about the photos here (and my lighting setup is far from ideal!), I recommend doing a quick Image search for the colorway you're looking at.

*As always, the color on your monitor may differ from mine. I have done the best I can to color-correct the photos for my monitor, but there is such a wide variety of devices in use now, it's impossible for me to guarantee that what I see on my computer will be the same as what you see on your device. If the accuracy of color is absolutely vital to you and you are not sure you're seeing the correct color, please email before ordering, as I do not provide returns or exchanges for color.

Excerpted from the Bijou washing and care page: When you buy a new woven wrap or ring sling, it comes to you in "loom state." It was woven on a loom and then finished, but it has not yet been washed and IS NOT YET READY TO BE WORN.

The fabric needs to be washed to set the weave. Wearing before a wash could cause thread shifting. Do not use bleach, fabric softener, powdered detergent, or detergent with optical brighteners.

SHRINKAGE: During its first bath your wrap or ring sling will shrink, which is normal. We cut the fabric so that it will shrink to the size that you ordered (within tolerances).

WASH: Wash before wearing the first time. Wash gently alone in cold water, no spin, with liquid detergent that does not contain optical brighteners. No bleach, no fabric softener. For ring slings, putting the rings in an old sock and/or putting the whole thing in a pillowcase is a good idea.

DRY: You may tumble dry low heat. Hanging dry is also great, especially for Tencel, which dries very quickly and doesn't like heat. If you tug the fabric as it hangs, some blends will hang dry with no wrinkles.

IRON: For all-cotton blends, steam iron with medium heat if you like, which helps break in the fabric even more. The other fiber blends should only be ironed on warm (one dot) if necessary. Refer to the care tag for instructions specific to your fiber blend.

I hope to have more colors in stock within the next 2-4 months; unfortunately, communication with and shipping from Austria is on the slower side. Also, please keep in mind that your device may not display the same color mine does. If you feel very strongly about the color, please email me with your concerns.

 

Generally your snug-fitting t-shirt size. Click the Size calculator tab above for a calculator, or see the sizing page for more in-depth information.

 

Colors can vary slightly from batch to batch, and may not match the photo exactly. If you feel very strongly about the color, please email me with your concerns.

 

Choices can be seen on the shoulder styles page.

 

You do not have to pick a primary shoulder -- the one you will be wearing the sling on the most often -- if your sling does not have a directional element (like fish, birds, or asymmetrical stripes), if you will be switching shoulders frequently, or if the directional element doesn't matter to you. As an example, the same sling is used in both figures at right -- worn on the right shoulder, the red rail is on top; and worn on the left shoulder, the pink rail is on top. (The bottom rail doesn't show when worn because it's tucked under the baby's knees.) So if you specify in the special instructions box that you want the pink rail to be on top, I need to know which shoulder you'll be wearing the sling on, since the color shown on the top rail will change depending on which shoulder you wear the sling on. This "primary shoulder" is only for orienting patterns, since both shoulder styles can be worn on either shoulder. However, if you specify an orientation preference, I must know which shoulder you will be wearing the sling on -- selecting "doesn't matter" means I can't take the orientation into account and will have to email you for clarification, resulting in a sewing delay.

 Which side out (colored or off-white), other things I should know.
Is this sling for a new user? 

Select Yes if you or the recipient has not previously used a ring sling. If you or the recipient is familiar with using a ring sling, select No.
