DidySling Prima Aurora (100% Organic Cotton)
A Timeless Classic!
The Prima weave is a complex jacquard weave that features fine and graphic patterns. The pattern is the same on both fabric sides but with the colours reversed. The Prima has been a classic design since Didymos was first founded in 1972 and continues to be one of the most popular patterns today! The pattern has been produced in a vast array of colour combinations, weights and fibre blends over the years. There is something for everyone’s tastes in this timeless pattern that is one of the trademarks of modern babywearing.
Didymos gives homage to the classic Prima patterns that have been a staple to the Prima collection for decades by offering a Prima Regular Line collection where the design options are always available. The designs that are included are colour combinations in 100% GOTS certified organic cotton including Ultramarine, Ruby Red, Emerald, Natural, Sun Yellow, Ruby Mandarin and Blue & White. More recent limited edition releases such as the Prima Aurora and the Prima Sole Occidente are also now included in the regular line!
The DIDYMOS Prima Aurora is a classic pattern combined with a beautiful, soft and delicate gradation of colours from neutral to petrol, turquoise and pink. No high contrast....just a subtle, peaceful and beautiful gradation of blues and pinks with an organic natural backdrop to this artistic palette. Prima Aurora has been an instant hit since it was released in 2014. Due to the wonderful popularity of this design, DIDYMOS has made the Prima Aurora part of it's regular line. Therefore, this particular design is re-woven on a continuous basis.
Considered to be a medium weight fabric, the Prima Aurora is a fabric that is appealing and suitable for both beginners and babywearing novices. The Prima Aurora is soft as all Prima fabrics become but because of the natural undyed warp, this particular model becomes exceptionally soft and fluffy. It also has a slightly grippy texture that is ideal to hold knots, passes and panels firmly in place. The fabric is suitable to carry babies of all ages and stages, for wearers of all shapes and sizes.
The cotton is GOTS certified and dyed with non toxic dyes, it is absolutely free from any harmful substances. The Prima Aurora is an ideal all-rounder at home or when you are out shopping or on long walks with the family!
So why choose a Prima pattern?
Prima patterned wraps, slings and soft carriers are a great DIDYMOS classics that are versatile for any situation. They are completely adjustable for all ages and stages from newborns to preschoolers and beyond!
At an approximate weight of 220 g/m², the regular collection is considered a light weight fabric which makes it a perfect weight for first learning babywearing as the fabric is supportive yet not bulky which makes learning to wear even easier! It is also a perfect weight for beginner to novice as it has a slightly grippy texture that is ideal for holding knots, passes and panels firmly in place yet the fabric glides smoothly for easy adjusting.
The cotton is GOTS certified and dyed with non toxic dyes, it is absolutely free from any harmful substances.
The fabrics are particularly soft and fluffy to the touch and have a very good diagonal stretch that provides incredible moldability when wearing.
The nature of the weave is a more open weave which allows for optimal air flow circulation and breathability without compromising strength and durability. The openness of the weave does make it more prone to pulls so some care must be taken but is not a huge concern.
The Prima Regular Collection is an ideal all-rounder at home or when you are out shopping or on long walks with the family!
