Gradation dyed silk indio

close enough to kiss
close enough to kiss

This wrap is originally a Didymos Silk Indio in natural colour. It is a mix of 70% cotton and 30% silk. The wrap has been gradation dyed by the mama who sold it to me. She named it hard candy because of the colours. It is about 4.2m long. It's a woven wrap, which means it's non-stretchy, unlike my purple Wrapsody.

A silk indio is said to be a must-have with a newborn because of its softness. When i received it the texture is not as soft as i expected it to be..i read that with a dyed silk indio, you will need to break it in post-dye before it becomes soft and marshmallow-y like it should. So right now I'm doing everything to break it in...sitting on it, braiding it, wearing it...right now it's drying in the guest bedroom..hopefully it'll soften up soon...but even right now i find it really great to wrap with...

first wrap job

i think this pic shows the colours of the wrap the best. It is pink on one rail, and bluish purple on the other end. In the middle there are shades of purple, green, yellow, peach and pink. It's absolutely stunning...i'm really falling in love with this wrap!

the carry that i'm doing is called a Front Wrap Cross Carry (FWCC) i think thats what its called..i'm stuck with this carry at the moment, it's most comfortable and easiest for a beginner..But i intend to learn other carries and i'll put up more photos if i succeed...

the mama who sold it to me included a silk indio scarf that was dyed in the same colours as my wrap. I was gonna use it as a normal winter scarf but....look at this:

i think it looks better on Adam, don't you??? hehehe...he's wearing Spongebob there..

MommyAdam said...

tuty,
yes, don't ask me what's the price. i must've gone momentarily crazy. bought when i was restless waiting for labour..hehe..but you're right, it was worth every cent!

chun,
yes it's kind of scary how fast he is absorbing everything we do!

cutie caliph,
i'm an amateur but insyaAllah will try to show how to wrap. this wrap dgn the Wrapsody totally different because wrapsody is a stretchy.stretchy wrap boleh pre-tie before masukkan baby so can pop baby in and out whenever. but it has a weight limit, big babies takleh pakai nnt sagging. woven wrap can use from birth until toddlerhood.both ade pro cons dia..

munirah,
boleh2! athirah sgt2 lawa! hehe...

anonymous,
thank you!

fizah,
tulah pasal...takut gak aku..haha

hada,
mmg lama nak blaja wrapping but with practice it will get easier. there are a million ways to tie a wrap. aku pun tgh blaja. btw, ko pakai wrap ape?

ernie,
yes...nnt aku try buat video ke ek..

ina,
salam...

ernie,
yeke??yay!aku tgk eyebrow dia nipis sgt masa baru lahir..tak rupe mine or taufik..now dah nampak obvious sikit eyebrows dia..

AYUKIRANA said...

aida, ada try wrap org lain punya time gathering..lupa nak tanya tapi kain dia mcm stretchy2 sket..sbb yg mcm ssh sket nak pki aku mcm was2 nak beli, tkt kang xpki pulak, hehe..

altuty said...

btw aida, you look very good berpantang away from family! kan dah ckp.. boleh buat :)

your face merah2, so confirm sihat! (what i mean, tak pucat). in fact, berseri2! both mia and adam mesti behave baekk punya.
