Another weaving masterpiece by DIDYMOS!!
Linen fabrics are one of the oldest textiles and are valued for their unique properties and beautiful sheen. So, DIDYMOS set to work and tried new linen-cotton-blends combining yarns of different thicknesses and colours. Off the loom came an extraordinary piece of cloth in a stunning pattern. The fabric is a true heavy weight that blends cotton with a very high percentage of shimmering linen.
The pattern is based on a warp of anthracite coloured linen. By interweaving thick, gold coloured linen and thin white cotton threads we could create a fabric featuring a unique, rich texture and vibrant pattern, smooth in places, yet dense and relief-like in others, a fabric with a wonderful grip.
Prior to release, this extraordinary woven wrap was tried and tested by babywearing consultants and they confirmed that our Tranquility is a fabulously supportive woven wrap blend that, once “broken in“, is wonderful to handle and work with.
Richly textured and haptic in quality, the fabric is thick and heavy weight due to the substantial linen weft threads. Stiff and rough in at first, it needs several washes and uses to soften the fibres. As the linen fibres soften, the fabric gets soft and mouldable revealing its perfect wrapping qualities.
The thick linen threads will shed some fluff with the first washes. Once broken in, however, the shedding will subside and the golden shine of the thick linen comes through, contrasting beautifully with the anthracite and white of the other yarns.
Solid and robust, with enough give to be nice to tie and to adjust, Tranquility is a very exceptional wrap, worthy of the “breaking in“ process. It offers plenty of comfort and support that you will not want to miss. Absolutely comfortable and perfect for wearing your heavy toddler or pre-schooler.
