Tekhni Wovens Adamas Panda

I haven’t been able to play with a Tekhni in a minute, so it was nice to get one back in the house. We were able to play with Adamas Panda, which is one of their newer designs. It’s a mixture of floral and geometrical designs. In the photos, it looks like a black and some kinda of silvery color, but it’s really the natural linen weft. That natural linen weft really makes the black look shimmery. First look: shimmery black with a fun design, thin.

So I think this linen blend is pretty much love. Sometimes my shoulders question thin wraps. They don’t like the digginess that sometimes happens with thin wraps. But I didn’t have that with Panda. It’s thin due to the linen blend, so I wouldn’t say there was any cushiness. But my shoulders didn’t want to fight me at all. There is limited give in the wrap. I didn’t really see much stretch in it at all, but I think that has to do with the linen as well. So it made for a really solid wrap. I wrapped Tot in a reinforced ruck, so you could see both sides of the wrap in photos and it stayed put. It didn’t budge at all.

The moldability on Panda is there. You can see how each pass hugs Tot’s back and he had a pretty decent seat. I think the thinness really helped with how each pass molded to us. I think it would be even more amazing once it was fully broken in. I could see this wrap definitely being considered a workhorse wrap in our house. It looks like it should be delicate with the design and shimmer. But in reality, with this linen? It would be put to work. I can see it being used every day. You don’t have to worry about too much dirt, because of the color of the wrap. It’s thin, so I could use it when it’s hot out and then do multi passes when it’s cold out. It’s airy. Definitely breathable. The weave doesn’t seem to be too prone to pulling, but be careful as always. There aren’t any special washing directions, due to the blend. But as always, I recommend checking with Tekhni and following their recommendations.

Panda is pretty grippy, which the texture of this weave. I might have had to wiggle a bit to get that last pass over Tot’s behind, but it wasn’t too bad. I wouldn’t consider Panda to be a sticky wrap at all. The thinness makes it pretty easy to tie a knot, so that was nice. Tot’s favorite part was running his hand over the wrap, because he loved feeling the design. It pops out a bit, as you can see in some of the macros. The texture is slightly bumpy.

This wrap is on its way to being floppy. I would love for it to come back around after it becomes more broken in. It flops down into a pile pretty well, but the linen stiffness is still kind of there.

Hey hey hey! Check out these macros. As you know macros are my favorite part. I love how you can see the weave of the design. And it’s almost like you can reach out and feel the texture of the wrap. Up close, you can see that it’s a natural linen weft and not some kind of silver. I just love how the black and natural linen make the design pop though. I wouldn’t mind playing with some more linen – I’m excited to see what else Tekhni comes up with. I love that it’ll be supportive enough for Tot, and with a little more usage, broken in enough for Dumpling. They still have some ring slings left in the shop!

  • 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. ⁣
