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. It is thicker than French twill or linen, and may not be ideal for very hot or humid climates; however, if you live in such a region but do most of your babywearing in the air conditioning, it would be fine. Large rings and the retro SBP pleats are standard due to the thickness.

All stretch twill slings are now pre-sewn with Retro pleats and a ring color that I feel best suits the color of the fabric. They were sewn prior to January 30, 2018, to comply with the exemption to testing on items sewn before that date. Length can still be customized as I have left the pieces long and will cut to length as ordered.

Loving my first-ever ring sling!

- 04/30/2018

I purchased this cotton twill ring sling in purple as my first one when my daughter was 4 months old. I couldn't be happier with it. The material is nice and warm for Minnesota winter and springtime, but still breathable and doesn't leave us feeling sweaty after babywearing for long periods. The stitching is perfect and the color is gorgeous, and we always get a ton of compliments when we're out and about. I'll be purchasing more slings in different materials and colors for sure. Thanks, SBP!
