Review: Fiolia Handwovens Springolicious Ring Sling

Fiolia Handwovens Springolicious ring sling

  • 50% cotton, 50% bamboo
  • $$$
  • Handwoven
  • Support: Perfect for smaller babies
  • Best for: newborns and infants
  • Carries: ring sling

I got to test out this Fiolia Handwovens ring sling and it was simply gorgeous! It’s called Springalicious because these colors are just amazing together. Totally springy! I love handwovens, they have a special place in my heart. The warp is 50% cotton and the weft is 50% bamboo. It is woven in a pebble zig zag weave.

Tot is a heavy baby, so I have a hard time with some of the thinner wraps that are out there. I only tried him on my front to nurse him and on my hip, in a regular ring sling carry. I didn’t get to chance to try him on my back or in other carries since this ring sling had great length. I totally recommend this for anyone with a newborn or an infant. It was great for quick ups here and there, but anything longer than about an hour, it started to get a little diggy in the shoulder.

There was limited give in the ring sling. I think it has to do with its blend. But that was fine! It molded around Tot perfectly. No complaints there. It was a pretty solid wrap — it didn’t stretch out with use. I didn’t have to tighten or readjust at all. Once Tot was up, he was up.

This wrap is on the delicate side because of the weave. I was afraid of it getting pulled on something. But because of the weave, it was so nice and airy. I would definitely recommend this wrap for hot days, or in warm climate areas. It’s a grippy weave without being too grippy. The wrap glided through the rings nicely, without slipping. There was no sagging, I didn’t have to readjust at all. It was nice and textured. I loved the feeling of the zig zag weave. This wrap is nice and floppy. It was a blast to get to test.

I loved this carrier! I don’t usually get the ring sling love, but I found it here. The colors were amazing! I love all of the colors. The weft made it seem like it was kinda sparkly. The bright green rings made the colors pop even more. There was a nice amount of sleepy dust in it too, Tot fell asleep 5 minutes into wearing it for the first time.

  • Playing with this @heirloomcarrier has been so much fun. I haven’t played with dupioni before and it was so supportive. A little crunchy but I’ll take it with the ultimate support. ⁣

  • Bring me back to Christmas Day dinner 🍴 I wish I could have some lobster tails 🦞 almost every day. This was such an awesome meal. ⁣

What do you eat when you celebrate for different holidays?  We do ham on Easter, turkey on Thanksgiving, and callaloo for New Years. I can’t wait for Chinese New Year - that’s my favorite meal 🧧 ⁣

  • The rain is gone! It’s so sunny ☀️ And it’s supposed to be in the high 60s for about a week - so excited 🎉⁣

The older kids got electric scooters for Christmas🎄 but haven’t been able to take them out because of the rain. Now we are going out multiple times a day. It’s good exercise. No major injuries, yet. ⁣
