SILK AND MERINO
Sleipnir is a luxurious wrap woven from 55% nubby tussah silk and 45% mulesing free merino. The weight is ~260 g/m2.
Speckled black tussah silk on black merino warp.
This blend does very well with both babies and toddlers. The warp being wool, it's light and airy, yet very strong. The wrap is soft enough to wrap a newborn snugly, yet has a balance of grip (from the tussah nubs) and glide from the merino to do a bandage-like back carry, and stay in place. The silk and merino is soft and cuddly from first wash, and the wraps require no breaking in.
One day, a giant showed up at Valhalla, promising that he, only assisted by his stallion, could build a wall surrounding Valhalla. If he didn't complete in time - it would be free. If however, he succeeded, the gods should give him Freya, the goddess of love. The greedy gods quickly agreed, seeing no way the giant could complete such an immense task.
But it was no ordinary horse, and as the days went, the gods realized they would lose the bet. They begged Loki, the trickster god, for help. Loki turned himself into a mare, and seduced the giant's stallion, leading it into the woods. Unassisted, the giant failed, and the gods won. Loki, however, had become pregnant and had to give birth to a foal - and what a foal. 8 legs and as swift on land as in air. Sleipnir he was called, and was gifted to Odin, the king of Gods.
