This warp is like a shiny and super strong cotton warp! This was a thicker warp fiber and added to the overall toddler worthiness of the wrap! Cushy in a hmmm stiffer way if that makes sense! Not squishy like foam.

Merc/tencel, hemp, seacell is such a good, but also slightly beastly blend! It’s grippy, mild sheen, and needs breaking in! Medium weight and wraps great with a baby as well as would be super fabulous with bigger kids too! Cool on a hot day and definitely one to try if you like grippier wraps!

Merc/green tea is rock solid yet so drapy from the start! It’s heavy, has such a solid density from the warp, yet is soft and cool to the touch! A solid type of cushy instead of spongey and good grip! This would rock all ages and sizes!
