Merlot is an American Made Woven Baby Wrap, woven in the classic Herringbone weave. It is a medium-thin wrap and suitable to carry babies of all ages and stages.  

Soft and pliable from the beginning, with an elegant drape, Herringbone only improves with time. A quintessentially classic textile, Herringbone lovingly caresses and supports your child without a lot of bulk or weight. Often associated with menswear, Herringbone is very Daddy friendly!

Breathable and light, the cotton yarns and a subtle ribbed texture leave skin cool and comfortable through the heat of summer, though substantial enough though all four seasons. 

Notes from a tester's maiden voyage wrapping with Herringbone Merlot: "I found Herringbone to be surprisingly light. The texture held knots firmly in place without impeding the passes from gliding across one another smoothly. I much enjoyed the slightly narrow width of this wrap, even with my almost six year old wrapee, and I can see it performing splendidly with a smaller baby." 

Merlot's weft is a ripe purple, kissed by a dusky mauve and reminiscent of a fresh fruit or easy drinking glass of Merlot, – filled with bright, fresh fruit and easy drinking, well, easy wrapping in this case. The contrast with the natural warp create a gorgeous baby wrap, both warm and cool depending on the light, easy on the eyes from any angle! 

Please be sure to review safety guidelines and instructions. Also, wraps will arrive in "loom state", and as such, we recommend that you wash before use as follows:

  • Wash on the gentle cycle in cold water, with a liquid detergent 
  • Tumble dry on low, (I like to to add wool dryer or tennis balls, but they are not necessary)
  • Finish with a steam iron on the cotton setting before use
  • Approx. 10% shrinkage is customary
