Pure Linen – a new line of woven baby slings!
A new collection by DIDYMOS! Pure 100% Linen! Linen is one of the oldest textiles and over the years, it has not lost its appeal and is appreciated by many from clothing to household fabrics and babywearing! Linen can be cultivated and processed into a textile without chemicals and therefore is valued for being an ultimate sustainable, bio-degradable product.
Linen is functional and versatile: By nature anti-static, dirt-resistant and antibacterial, it is also tear-proof, durable and drapes well. Linen is one of the most breathable fabrics. Highly absorbent and a good conductor of heat, linen fabric feels cool to the touch. Thanks to these cooling properties, pure linen is the perfect choice for babywearing when temperatures rise.
Linen may feel a bit stiff initially but it becomes so soft and wonderfully supple through washing and wear.
Pure linen and baby slings – Didymos has brought them together creating a new linen collection of appealing weaves and colours!
As part of the new Pure Linen line, Didymos has launched their Crepelino collection. The fabric in this collection is a linen crêpe that features a crisp, slightly crimped appearance, appreciated for its beautiful look and texture that adds a subtle grip to the fabric. With the fabric’s perfect diagonal stretch it is moldable and allows for precise and comfortable tying of front, hip and back carries. The wraps have a width of 65 cm and as they are pre-washed they willl not shrink.
The Crepelino collection is offered both woven wraps and ring slings in a variety of colours. Rosso (natural & red linen – 220 g/m²), Azur (natural & light blue linen – 220 g/m²), Jade (natural & jade linen – 220 g/m²), Stone (natural & anthracite linen – 220 g/m²) and Natural (natural linen 230 g/m²)

Quick DidySling Sizing Reference!
Size 1 measures 170-180 cm / 67-71 inches (The length is measured along the shorter edge. Length measured on the longer side is approximately 190-200 cm / 75-79 inches). This length is suited for persons wearing sizes up to Large or size 16 US/CAN. If you are not sure, please measure the upper part of your body, from one shoulder down to the opposite waist height and back to the shoulder, just the way you will put on the sling. If you measure not more than 140 cm / 55 inches , a size 1 should fit!
Size 2 measures 200-210 cm / 79-83 inches (The length is measured along the shorter edge. Length measured on the longer side is approximately 220-230 cm / 87-97 inches).
For people that like a short tail, it is better to to purchase a size 1. For people that like a longer tail, it is better to purchase a size 2. The tail of the sling should never be shorter than 6″ and never longer than your knees as it could then become a tripping hazzard.
