So, now that I am in love with the world of woven wraps, I need to know what you experienced wrappers are actually using.  I currently have an Ellaroo (4.6m) and a Dolcino organic (4.6m), though I prefer the Ellaroo so far and plan to sell the other, mostly because I don't like the colors as well and find it too slippery (the ER is so nice and grippy).  I am wondering if the ER is all I need, or if something else would be a good addition as well.  So, tell me:

 

1. how many wraps do you have?

2. which brands?

3. how many wraps do you actually use/need?

4. which is your favorite?

 

Thanks!

Six wraps

 

three six's, a four, a two, and a seven I'm going to sell since it's too long. 

 

Didymos, Natibaby, Ellevill (3), Storch

 

Favorites depend on the need. I love my shorty, I love my Zaras, I love my Gears, etc., all for different reasons. Which is why I have six!!!

1. how many wraps do you have?

Eight (two 5s and six 2s)

 

2. which brands?

Didymos, Storchenwiege, Natibaby, Diva Milano, Oscha

 

3. how many wraps do you actually use/need?

I could live with two (a 5 and a 2) but I have a whole bunch of shorties just cuz they're pretty.  I do use them all.

 

4. which is your favorite?

the Diva for wrapping qualities and the Oschas for looks

I'm not crunchy. I'm evidence-based.

Thanks for the response!  Can you tell me what the "wrap qualities" are that make you prefer the Diva?

Sure, it's really thin and cool, super wide, very supportive (no sag), fairly moldable and holds a rebozo knot well.  Wrapping qualities are really individual though - some people love thick bouncy wraps.  Just not me. :)
