Review: Apple Blossom Wovens Heirloom Ruby & Sapphire

January 19, 2017 2 Comments

Apple Blossom Wovens Heirloom Ruby (Red) & Sapphire (Blue)

  • Mercerized cotton blend  (Ruby) and un-mercerized cotton (Sapphire)
  • $$
  • Machine Woven
  • Support: Average
  • Best for: All babies
  • Carries: Multi-pass carries for bigger babies (Ruby), all passes (Sapphire)

I was offered the chance to test out Apple Blossom Wovens’ Heirloom Ruby and Sapphire and I jumped on it. Ruby and Sapphire are a part of ABW’s Heirloom line that have just started to be released. Heirloom Ruby is a mercerized cotton blend and Heirloom Sapphire is 100% cotton. I was able to test out both wraps during the same time so I could try out and compare both blends.

Heirloom is a great print! It’s dry to the touch, but it’s nicely textured. They are also grippy. They have some micro-texture, but not so grippy where it’s hard to get passes around. It helps to get the passes to “lock” right into place and not slip. There is some stretch (horizontally and vertically – and dare I say diagonally?!), which gives it a bit of a bounce – makes for amazing chest passes.

Heirloom Sapphire is the perfect blue. I love my blues, so I was excited that I was going to get to try this one out. Sapphire is 100% cotton. It’s a pretty solid wrap, with just a bit of bounce.  I was the first one to play with it, so it wasn’t fully broken in – but it was well on its way. It started to get floppy when it was time for it to go.

Heirloom Ruby is a true red. It’s hard to find a true red wrap, so I was anxious to see Ruby in person. Tot designated the red wrap “the best” and used it as a blanket for its duration here. The merc cotton in Ruby was amazing. It made the wrap smoother, so less textured. So it was easier to glide- should have made the passes slippery, but didn’t because of the micro-texture that I mentioned above. It almost felt like it had a tiny bit of a shine – at least in direction sunlight. Even though it came to me brand new, it was soft – softer than Sapphire. It was cuddly and smooshy – probably why Tot made it his blanket.

I would definitely recommend both wraps to a beginner. They are easy to use wraps, extremely easy to tighten each rail. They are easy care wraps – so washing them is no issue. I can imagine wrapping an itty bitty newborn in the cushy wrap of Ruby, and throwing my toddler up in Sapphire – and then switching with no issue.

  • We pulled out our @appleblossomwovens Black Agate Tencel wrap for this chilly weather. It’s been cold and rainy, so the extra coziness of Tencel has been great. ⁣
Black Agate has been one of our favorite monochrome wraps ever. 🖤 It truly speaks to me. I can’t wait for Reflection to be released which is another monochrome wrap, with a kaleidoscope weave. Both white and black weft are speaking to me. M

  • Who is always at the ready to take somebody’s head off during the holidays? 🙋🏽‍♀️ Just look at me wrong or finish my favorite dish and it’s over. ⁣

  • Obsessing over @squeezamals this holiday season! The picnic pack was the cutest addition to our Squeezamals collection. Everything came for a perfect picnic lunch. ⁣
Dumpling loves the texture of the squish of the Squeezamals. She is always found with one in her hands. ⁣
If you’re interested in grabbing some for your littles, check out your local @walmart!

  • I volunteered in my daughter’s classroom for Thanksgiving. I helped on the food line so I had to tie Dumpling to my back and make turkey sandwiches. We do teach the kids that we don’t actually celebrate Thanksgiving, and the teachers discussed the truth with the kids. I’m glad I didn’t have to step in like previous years 🤦🏽‍♀️⁣
My tote bag from @shopkindredtogether is my favorite though. I’m able to fit everything in there. A quick link to the shop is in my profile & you can use code APRILOCT to save 💰 ⁣

  • We were so lucky to be able to check out the Flip & Spin for the Win bundle - thanks to @PowerYourFun. The bundle included Laser Launchers (which I can’t pry out of Tot’s hands), the Mini Cyclone Stunt Car, and Turbo Tops Gyro Cars - which you see pictured here. These are our favorite part of the bundle, the kiddos are constantly try to do tricks with them. ⁣
Thank you Kaliber Global Toys for this awesome gift! #sponsored #PowerYourFun #TurboTops @apexdropofficial
  • Yesterday was my birthday! I’m thirty-something (the something is silent 🤪) and it was a good day. A made it back from a 10 day trip just in time to celebrate. The kids were so excited to make mom’s day fun. ⁣⁣
My sister always grabs a red velvet bundt cake for me and I love it. It’s my favorite. My grandmother used to bake me a red velvet cake every year when I was younger and it’s important to me to have it. ⁣
Here’s to another revolution around the sun ☀️
  • I posted about the awesome @pjmasks PJ Masks Seeker about a month ago. I grabbed it at @target and kept it hidden until it was Tot’s birthday. He had already completely forgotten about it & it was a wonderful surprise to open on his day 🎂 He’s been playing with it nonstop and his sisters keep trying to get a turn. ⁣
Thank you to MomSelect for gifting us this toy. It’s the perfect toy for this @pjmasks obsessed family. #ad⁣

  • My middle child. My wild child. He’s officially 5 years old and 1 day. I tried to make sure he had a fun filled day yesterday and now I’m exhausted. This year he decided he didn’t like cake and asked for donuts instead 🍩 ⁣
Happy birthday Tot 💕
  • We saved this Star Wars coding kit for Tot’s birthday and it was a hit! He was totally interested in putting it together and making things work. He’s my little tinker. ⁣
