Thats good to know that newer Mayas are maybe a bit nicer. The complaint I have is that its just sooo stiff, that its next to impossible to smoothly tighten the fabric between the rings. Its like a hard almost canvas-like material. I'm hoping if I find a woven ring sling, it will still be "firm" and super safe, but just a bit smoother to pull between the rings. We have a great local babywearing chapter with ladies I love - sometimes its hard to get to meetings (we missed one on Friday!) but I'm sure I'll make it to one in the next few months.
My woven wrap is also on the thicker side, its a Didymos, 100% cotton. But I think it will actually be perfect for fall into winter this time -- last time DS was born at the beginning of summer and it was definitely too warm for that time of year! I have a thinner one, I can't remember the brand (breeze something?), but it is a little scratchy, so I wouldn't recommend anyway...its one I'm going to hopefully trade or sell.
The lightest wraps I've seen/tried are the Solly Baby wraps, very similar to Moby (stretchy) but even lighter and thinner. I think linen and linen blend wraps are also supposed to be pretty lightweight and breathable, but I don't have one of those, so no personal experience. I have a wrap-conversion Mei Tai that is made from a Girasol wrap, and it seems like it is a little bit thinner and lighter than my Didymos...that might be a good brand to look into!
