I was sent a Size 6 Russian Dolls design wrap in the petrol and apple colour way. This wrap is 100% cotton. I was instantly struck by the vibrancy of the colours and was excited to play. I was only the second tester on this wraps route so it was not broken in when it arrived with me.
The attention to detail by Shire Slings is one of the main things which Ioved about this wrap. The clearly different colour top and bottom rails mean it is excellent for teaching with (feel Yolanda's consultancy background helps). The black middle marker (with their logo) was clear to spot. The aspect which I liked the most was the way in which the Shire Slings logo had been woven into the design, both on its own and as part of the dolls decoration. Touches like this show a company who is proud of their product.
I found that after washing the wrap I had it measured 490 x 69cm, so a long size 6 but felt it wrapped more like a true size 6. The width of wrap meant that it was easy enough for Isaac five arms out if he wished but that there was plenty of fabric to create a deep seat and support his back.
I really enjoyed playing with this wrap and was glad that we got the chance. I was oy just a lite bit sad packaging it up and posting it off to its next stop. I loved using it and getting my hands on a Shire Sling. This big girl definitely still likes to play with dolls. Finally congratulations to Yolanda on making a fabulous product which lived up to expectations and which shows that England remains a hot bed of fabric production and weaving.
