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.

  • My kids are loving these @tinytukkinss that were gifted to us! They love to play house and tuck them in at night, which coincidentally has made bedtime easier in our home too. ⁣
The different animal families are so much fun and I love the little school, complete with miniature pencils and books. I can’t wait to add more to our set. ⁣
