Starfish Cove Baby Boutique: Natibaby Kurpie Sunset Woven Wrap (hemp blend)

Starfish Cove Baby Boutique, a lovely natural parenting store, sent be the gorgeous Natibaby Kurpie Sunset Woven Wrap in a size 6 to review for them. Starfish Cove has a great selection of baby carriers. For more about Starfish Cove Baby Boutique, please check out my intro post for them here.

I received this lovely wrap a few months back, but right before Bobble ended up in Children's for a week. After things settled when we returned home, I got to work breaking in this wrap. The hemp is very durable, but thicker than wraps I'm used to (which were just a thin cotton). 

Bobble excitedly displaying the Kurpie Sunset before we ended up at Children's. He isn't quite grasping the idea of holding still.
It was much softer after the wash, and even softer still after a few braids.





My go-to carry is a front-wrap cross carry (FWCC), though I do use a ruck more now that I am better at it and the kids are old enough to get in my face when worn on the front!






The design of this wrap is beautiful. I love the colours, too. The background is a gray/blue material, accented by orange, yellow, and red. The "wrong" side is every bit as gorgeous as well.

  3. I love the idea of using hemp in a wrap. I'm curious to hear if the wrap gets softer or "crunchier" (for lack of a better word) after using and washing it more. My hemp diaper inserts are not anywhere near as soft as my cotton ones, so I wonder if the same thing would happen with a hemp wrap.

    1. It definitely is getting softer with each use. Braiding is a good way to break in the material, as is actually using it. I have some hemp wipes that have just now softened (after 3 years!), so I was curious about a hemp wrap when I got it, too. It's different than the wipes (or inserts), and definitely does soften easier. :)
