X-Large Inner diameter: 3.5″ Outer diameter: 4″ For use with Jasmine’s tandem hip carry or thick handwoven wraps that have been unsuccessful with size large rings.
Large Inner diameter: 3″ Outer diameter: 3.5″ If you are making a double layer sling, turning a baby wearing wrap into a sling, using a heavy weight (winter weight) or heavy nap fabric, or a very wide fabric (34″-45″), or have just had difficulty adjusting your sling in the past, you may want our large size rings.
Medium Inner diameter: 2.5″ Outer diameter: 3″ If you are using a medium or dress weight fabric, in widths of 26 “-30”, you might be more comfortable with the medium size rings. In general, the medium size rings will give you a sling that is secure, but may not be as easy to adjust as the large rings if your fabric is on the thicker side. Many people prefer medium rings when making a single-layer dupioni or shantung silk sling, especially if it will be machine-washed.
Small Inner diameter: 2″ Outer diameter: 2.5″ Our small rings are best used with light weight and/or very smooth fabrics. They are well-suited to closed tail slings. If you plan to make your sling very narrow (22″-26″), you might also want the small rings. The small rings tend to be very secure, though not as easy to adjust as the larger rings.
