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.

  • 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

  • Who is always at the ready to take somebody’s head off during the holidays? 🙋🏽‍♀️ Just look at me wrong or finish my favorite dish and it’s over. ⁣

  • 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. ⁣
