I have been making pouch type slings for years, and love it. I really wanted a hemp sling from Jenn at Mom-n-Me Creations, but Samuel being so sick and all...


I know Jenn uses hemp fleece on her pouches, but I'm wondering if hemp jersey would work too? Is it too stretchy? Would it stretch waaaay down past my thigh when wearing DS? I found a site selling hemp and the jersey is cheaper, but I want to use what's best.

That sounds like fleece to me.


I'd use the hemp fleece to make the pouch myself, but Kissaluvs used to make a jersey sling (not a pouch) that was great! It wasn't TOO stretchy, but was very comfortable. Of course, it had the rings to make it adjustable, lol, so it's kind of moot.

Exactly ! You still double the fabric...treating the loop as one layer. No need to finish the edges, just attach the two ends and wah-la you've got a hemp pouch sling !
