Apple Blossom Wovens Midnight Sky noir weft

  • $$
  • machine woven
  • Best for: all babies
  • Carries: all

I was chosen to reveal Midnight Sky noir weft on Apple Blossom Woven’s Facebook page. This gorgeous wrap showed up on my doorstep and I’ve been wearing it everywhere! It was love at first sight once I got that package open. The kiddos fought over it and dubbed it “blueberry”. I’ve been posting black and white shots so I can still post photos daily, but this color needs to be seen.

Look at this color! I’ve been stopped multiple times when I’m out at the grocery store, with caregivers wanting to know more about it. Little kids have stopped me, asking to touch it and just loving on the colors. I honestly can’t stop looking at it.

Apple Blossom Wovens is a small, woman-owned business in the United States. Lisa is the owner and she is responsible for designing it all. I’ve been following ABW for a long time – I loved that the wraps from their original lines were machine woven, but look and feel handwoven. I also reviewed two wraps from their Heirloom line earlier this year.

Midnight Sky arrived pre-washed, which I loved. I was able to throw Tot up right away, without having to wait to wash and air dry. Thank you Lisa! First thing I noticed was MS is extremely soft. It only had one wash and it was our first time up, and it was already soft. Not much to do to speed up the breaking in process.

I threw Tot up in a ruck, Shepherd’s Carry, reinforced ruck and a scarf carry. Those are my go-to’s for shorter wraps. MS shined in all of the carries. There was no digging in the shoulder at all. The wrap was extremely cushy, but pretty solid. There’s limited give, which might change a tiny bit as I break in the wrap more – but it stayed still in every carry. I didn’t have to adjust any passes at all.

Right now I feel the wrap is a bit on the dense side, it’s slightly cumbersome. I feel like that will change as the wrap gets broken in more. I have a feeling it will mold to me more as time goes on.

Midnight Sky is 100% cotton – so very low maintenance. I can throw it into the wash, without worry of the different fibers. MS barely picks up any dirt when we’re out. It had a great time at the beach, where I just had to shake out the sand. There are no special washing directions, and I don’t see it being too prone to pulls either (but be careful with jewelry and uneven nails – just in case!).

I wouldn’t say that Midnight Sky is hot. It’s dense, but not too heavy. I wouldn’t quite say airy either. Maybe right in between?

Midnight Sky is pretty grippy. You can feel the texture of the wrap when you rub your fingers on it. You can definitely feel the weave. MS is floppy already and it’s just going to get better with time, that’s for sure.

Here are some macro shots of the weave, because I love macro shots.

 

Midnight Sky noir weft will be released Tuesday, April 18 at 2pm EDT on Apple Blossom Wovens’ website. It’s a limited release, so you don’t want to miss it!

There’s also a separate release for ABW’s international fans. The international release is Wednesday, April 19 at 7am EDT.

  • 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. ⁣
