Review: Apple Blossom Wovens Heirloom Ruby & Sapphire

January 19, 2017 2 Comments


Apple Blossom Wovens Heirloom Ruby (Red) & Sapphire (Blue)

  • Mercerized cotton blend  (Ruby) and un-mercerized cotton (Sapphire)
  • $$
  • Machine Woven
  • Support: Average
  • Best for: All babies
  • Carries: Multi-pass carries for bigger babies (Ruby), all passes (Sapphire)

I was offered the chance to test out Apple Blossom Wovens’ Heirloom Ruby and Sapphire and I jumped on it. Ruby and Sapphire are a part of ABW’s Heirloom line that have just started to be released. Heirloom Ruby is a mercerized cotton blend and Heirloom Sapphire is 100% cotton. I was able to test out both wraps during the same time so I could try out and compare both blends.


Heirloom is a great print! It’s dry to the touch, but it’s nicely textured. They are also grippy. They have some micro-texture, but not so grippy where it’s hard to get passes around. It helps to get the passes to “lock” right into place and not slip. There is some stretch (horizontally and vertically – and dare I say diagonally?!), which gives it a bit of a bounce – makes for amazing chest passes.


Heirloom Sapphire is the perfect blue. I love my blues, so I was excited that I was going to get to try this one out. Sapphire is 100% cotton. It’s a pretty solid wrap, with just a bit of bounce.  I was the first one to play with it, so it wasn’t fully broken in – but it was well on its way. It started to get floppy when it was time for it to go.


Heirloom Ruby is a true red. It’s hard to find a true red wrap, so I was anxious to see Ruby in person. Tot designated the red wrap “the best” and used it as a blanket for its duration here. The merc cotton in Ruby was amazing. It made the wrap smoother, so less textured. So it was easier to glide- should have made the passes slippery, but didn’t because of the micro-texture that I mentioned above. It almost felt like it had a tiny bit of a shine – at least in direction sunlight. Even though it came to me brand new, it was soft – softer than Sapphire. It was cuddly and smooshy – probably why Tot made it his blanket.

I would definitely recommend both wraps to a beginner. They are easy to use wraps, extremely easy to tighten each rail. They are easy care wraps – so washing them is no issue. I can imagine wrapping an itty bitty newborn in the cushy wrap of Ruby, and throwing my toddler up in Sapphire – and then switching with no issue.

  • Running towards the weekend, like... 🏃🏾‍♀️🏃🏾‍♀️🏃🏾‍♀️ Little Miss Dumpling is always on the go & she’s so fast. Sometimes I can’t keep up 🤷🏽‍♀️⁣
⁣
What are your plans for the weekend?⁣

  • Anyone carry around their hair stylist on their back? No? Just me?⁣

This @2lambie reverse onbuhimo is our favorite when we go grocery shopping. Dumpling is high enough where she can see everything, but not quite touch anything. ⁣

I got a chance to check out @heritagedistilling’s award-winning BSB @BrownSugarBourbon and it is simply delicious. It’s got that brown sugar taste with just a hint of cinnamon, which makes it the perfect drink as we transition to autumn.⁣
⁣
The brown sugar flavor is amazing with that bit of light sweetness. It really helps pull in those favors in cocktails. We made a Blackberry Smash (blackberries have been on sale since it’s season!) and a Rickey (who doesn’t love a Rickey?!). They really complemented our weekend meal.⁣

Thank you @heritagedistilling & @brownsugarbourbon for gifting me these products! #DrinkingBSB #BrownSugarBourbon #sponsored #ad
  • I would love to be a @magnatiles brand rep! It’s one of the toys that work for all the ages and my kids get along so well when they’re playing with them. I have three kiddos - Birdie (8), Tot (4), and Dumpling (1). We reside in the SF Bay Area of California.  #2019mtbrandrep
  • It’s a new blog post! I reviewed @rabbitholehandwovens Radiant Rose up on the blog ✨ it’s magical! And we were so sad to see it go. ⁣

Also shout out to @gleafulpresets - this picture was dark and almost unusable. 😂 now it’s one of my favorite shots.⁣

  • I’ve been holding off on posting these @dermae products because I wanted to try them. I’ve placed them on my tattoos and on Birdie’s scars from boo-boos over the summer & they work AMAZING! They keep your skin so moisturized and the scars have been fading nicely over time. My tattoos are looking nice and bright. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Thank you @dermae for gifting me these products! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
