Review: Tekhni Wovens Adamas Panda

Tekhni Wovens Adamas Panda 55% cotton, 45% linen $$ Machine woven Support: Average Best for: All babies Carries: Great with all! 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.

This is one of the happiest blog posts that I get to write. Honestly, I wasn’t sure if I was ever going to get the chance to, but I’ve always wondered how this blog post would go. This blog has been a part of my life for years. It has seen me through almost everything, and I knew I had to share the news. A and I could not be more excited about this.

I was able to check out this wrap before it was released, and I fell in love. It was just the perfect wrap for me. The colors, the texture, the support. It was…

Review: Coco-N Garden Zen Neptune

Coco-N Garden Zen Neptune 35% ELS cotton, 35% linen, 30% cotton $$ machine woven Best for: all babies Carries: all I was so excited to check out Garden Zen when it came to visit us! I haven’t played with a Coco-N wrap before, so this one was totally new to us. I was completely surprised with how floppy it was, right out of the box, despite it not being fully broken in yet. It was also pretty dense, due to the weave – but still floppy nonetheless. I think once the linen breaks in more, this wrap could be even…
