Emmeline Textiles Juno Squares V2

I received Emmeline Textiles’ Juno Squares Version 2 in the traveler program and I was excited to try it out. Their program has a lot of options for caregivers to check out all kinds of wraps. I haven’t played with Juno Squares yet, so I wanted to play around a bit.

Juno Squares V2 is a thin wrap. Very thin – but not in a bad way. I wouldn’t consider the shoulders to be cushy. But I wouldn’t consider them to be diggy either. The shoulders didn’t dig in any of the carries (ruck, double hammock, front wrap cross carry) that I ended up trying.

There is limited give to this wrap. Ignore the sloppy wrap job. It was a size that I wasn’t quite used to, so I struggled a bit. It gave a good chest pass. Just barely any stretch, so it molded across my chest a bit. The wrap is pretty solid, it doesn’t relax much with use. I didn’t have to readjust or tighten with use.

I definitely wouldn’t consider Juno Squares V2 to be a cumbersome wrap. It’s leaning towards the Ace Wrap category, but without a huge amount of stretch. The moldability is almost there. This isn’t a delicate wrap, but it is natty – so I wouldn’t quite consider it a workhorse if you are prone to dropping stuff. Stains don’t tend to stay on Emmeline Textiles’ 100% cotton wraps. Like always, I do recommend following the company’s care instructions.

Juno Squares is pretty airy. It’s thin, so it doesn’t retain heat. Passes do glide pretty well, with a tiny bit of texture from the weave. The squares remind me more of a basket weave pattern than anything. It’s pretty easy to tie a double knot of a slip knot. No extra wiggling it shimmying to get the wrap into place.

The wrap is slightly bumpy from the texture of the pattern – you can see it in the photo above. And eek – baby feet! I love baby feet. The wrap is pretty floppy already, and I bet will continue to be more so as it continues on to the other hosts.

All in all – great wrap. Single passes for the little ones and I recommend multi passes for the bigger kids. Thin but not diggy. Textured but not too textured where it’s too grippy. Another win from EmTex.

  • This wrap is so beautiful. ⁣

I received Dreamer with a cotton/hemp weft yesterday. This weft is hand dyed by Echo over at @chicibeanz for the collaboration with @appleblossomwovens. ⁣
⁣
The pooling of the hand dyed yarn really makes it looked striped almost. It almost looks like a totally different wrap compared to the black linen weft I’ve been using. ⁣

  • I got surprised with a trip to @Disneyland for Valentine’s Day. It’s so crowded because of the long weekend. There’s even lines for the bathrooms - every bathroom. We haven’t gone on many rides, but we’ve checked out more shows than before and looked around for hidden mickeys. The weather has been perfect too. ⁣
⁣
I hope you’re on some adventures this long weekend. What are you up to?⁣

  • We rarely get to drive over the Golden Gate Bridge. I hate tolls and I also hate driving over bridges, but this was too much fun to not. ⁣
⁣
The kids fell asleep right before we even made it, but I was going to go for it. I’m glad we made a trip out of it, even though the car ended up breaking down. Nobody stopped to help. The few people I did get to ask refused to help 🤷🏽‍♀️⁣
⁣
At least we got to check it out. 🌉
  • Dreamer is a dream. This wrap is gorgeous. I loved being able to test it all weekend in the city. ⁣

  • We got to take photos of @bijoubabywearing Windmills Strawberry! It’s such a great pink, perfect for Valentine’s Day and every other day of the week. It’s merc cotton and extremely supportive. Dumpling is a huge fan of the pink 💕⁣

  • I’ve been looking for any copies of my maternity photos with Dumpling since I suck and I can’t find my copies. @bijoubabywearing was able to find some of me wrapping Tot in Baskerville Boardwalk and I couldn’t be happier. I love the bubbles in this one. @paintingskies did such a great job with this shoot. My family had so much fun with her. ⁣

  • When your friend @koalacuddlesbabywearing  needs shots for upcoming educational material for @happybaby and you drop what you’re doing at @disneyland to check out their onbuhimos 😂💕⁣
⁣
This Marigold onbuhimo was easy to get in the shoulder to shoulder height and pretty comfortable. I might need to snag one. ⁣
