Emmeline Textiles Emmeline Metachrosis

  • 100% cotton
  • $$
  • Machine woven
  • Support: Average
  • Best for: All babies
  • Carries: Great with carries with cross passes

Once I saw that Emmeline Textiles had a dual weft weave wrap, I knew I had to see it in the person. You see how the photo above looks almost like a darkish purple and ecru wrap? It’s red and blue woven together so from further away it’s this purple/gray, and up close, you can see the red and blue. Make sure you check out the macro shots below to see the different color threads!

Metachrosis isn’t much different from the other Emmelines woven wraps. She’s thin, but not too thin. She’s cushy, but not marshmallow-y. She has texture, but it isn’t overwhelming. Some stretch, but not enough to sag. Just perfectly enough of everything.

Metachrosis was nice on the shoulders. It didn’t dig too much at all. I wouldn’t say it was extremely cushy or anything, but it didn’t hurt to lug around 40 lb Tot. My shoulders were perfectly fine after an afternoon walk and nap. No complaints here. This wrap has a bit of stretch in it. It does have some bounce. You can stretch it through, so your passes mold to your body like an ace bandage. It always snaps right back into shape, with minimal sagging. I actually didn’t have any problems with sagging at all. I wouldn’t say this wrap is completely solid, due to the stretch, but I didn’t have to readjust my passes at all. It might slightly stretch out with use, but I had no issue there.

This wrap is like an ace bandage, like I said before. It molds to every curve. Look at how its tightened around his body. This is not a cumbersome wrap. There is some diagonal stretch in Metachrosis.

This wrap isn’t a beater wrap (one that can take a beating and survive), but I wouldn’t say it’s so delicate that it needs to be babied. There are white parts of the wrap, and always be cautious of snagging. You can never be too careful. This wrap is 100% cotton, so no special washing instructions. But as always, I recommend following the company’s washing instructions.

I’m a fan of the texture in Emmeline. She’s glide-y, so it’s extremely fun to wrap with. She moves easily and it’s incredibly easy to tie a knot. I’m pretty sure I perfected my slip knot in an Emmeline. There is just enough texture that this wrap isn’t slippery. I think that’s my favorite part. There’s a slight 3D texture to it, but it doesn’t pop out too much. I think it’s more obvious in Metachrosis because of the dual weft. All Emmelines are floppy. So far. I don’t know if there are plans for future Emmelines with different blends. But this cotton blend works. I’ve never met an Emmeline that wasn’t floppy and fun to wrap with.

Emmeline Textiles does it again, with another wonderful wrap. Check out these macro shots, because I’m a sucker for macros:

  • 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

  • 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. ⁣
