Linen works beautifully with the Didymos Doubleface line and adds to the simple, beautiful aesthetic of these wraps. The new Doubleface Crocus is a 50% Linen / 50% Organic Cotton blend which combines yellow cotton with lilac linen. The end result is two very different sides to the fabric: one dominated by the cotton the other by the linen. Both sides can be worn facing out.
The texture of the doubleface weave is optimal for babywearing because it offers optimal support and supreme comfort. The Doubleface line is densely woven and sturdy, yet smooth to the touch. They have the right diagonal stretch that allows the fabric to glide and mould perfectly to all shapes and sizes, and the fabric is very easy to work with.
Linen blends are ideal for sensitive skin. They are also temperature-regulating, highly absorbent, and feel cool to the touch. Linen is one of the most breathable fabrics and the perfect babywearing choice for warm summer days. Linen blends may feel a bit stiff initially, yet they become so soft and supple already with the first wash and wear.
Note: Linen blends are grateful if washed in abundant water.
