Thanks to some awesome people, I was able to test ABW’s Under The Sea! Under The Sea was first available at IBC (International Babywearing Conference) in two different wefts and additional wefts were released over the summer. I have fallen in love with ABW – their wraps look handwoven, but they’re all machine woven. Their wraps are all gorgeous. UTS is no different. The colors are gorgeous. I love blues and greens, so this wrap was just perfect for me. Another plus is the unhemmed rails, which makes passes glide and not get caught on one another, during wrapping.
UTS isn’t cushy, but don’t let that hold you back. It was not diggy at all on the shoulders. It’s extremely supportive and there’s just a bit of stretch. Not too much, where you have to readjust and fix your passes. But just enough that, it just molds to your body and your baby. I wore Tot in a double hammock for hours while shopping, and it’s just extremely supportive. He took a nap, woke up, and was just fine.
The texture on this wrap is great! It’s slightly 3D, but I wouldn’t consider it bumpy. It helps keep passes still. It drapes well and looks good in all different carries. I could also carry Tot in a ruck, and it felt fine. No digging, no complaints from my shoulders at all.
I totally recommend this wrap to babies of all ages and sizes. I can see it being a great wrap for a newborn, and it was a great wrap for my toddler.
