|In-stock slots: 0||Week of May 20: 0|

Please read at left for explanation!
I've started using the sewing slot system again. I hate to do it, but I simply can't keep up with the order volume that's been consistently high for months now. Please click the link for an explanation of how it works and why I need to use it.
At right, In-stock slots are for fabrics I have on hand (basic and organic fabrics) and will be sewing from scratch; WCRS slots are for things you're having sent to me like wrap pieces, custom fabric, or sling shoulder redos. Next refresh is the date and time I will be adding more sewing slots.
I've changed from sewing a mix of WCRS and in-stock slings each week, to just doing WCRS one week and in-stocks the next. I think this will be more efficient and allow me to sew more slings, and may also may sewing slots easier to get. Sewing slots for both types will be added every other week, in a several batches to give people in different time zones the opportunity to order. If these present a difficulty for you, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know.
Summer-weight fabric slings are lighter or have a more open weave than those that do not have the "hot thermometer" symbol. They are great for warm, humid climates, or hot summer days up North. The fabrics are suitable for hot weather, but keep in mind that no fabric will magically keep you perfectly cool in the heat. Babywearing is inherently warm, just as holding a baby is, so while these fabrics will be more comfortable than some of the others, they will not be cooler than not having a little bundle of heat pressed up next to you. (Of course, I think babywearing is still worthwhile in the summer; it just tends to get a little sweaty, no matter what you're wearing, compared to cool-weather babywearing.) All of these slings (aside from the water mesh) can also be used in the winter, especially considering you'll likely be wearing warmer clothes, so please don't think they are only summer slings.
Key to symbols:
: soft and snuggly for newborns (8-20 lbs) : best for babies (8-28 lbs) : suitable for babies and toddlers (8-35 lbs)
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.
