I was chosen to reveal Midnight Sky noir weft on Apple Blossom Woven’s Facebook page. This gorgeous wrap showed up on my doorstep and I’ve been wearing it everywhere! It was love at first sight once I got that package open. The kiddos fought over it and dubbed it “blueberry”. I’ve been posting black and white shots so I can still post photos daily, but this color needs to be seen.

Look at this color! I’ve been stopped multiple times when I’m out at the grocery store, with caregivers wanting to know more about it. Little kids have stopped me, asking to touch it and just loving on the colors. I honestly can’t stop looking at it.

Apple Blossom Wovens is a small, woman-owned business in the United States. Lisa is the owner and she is responsible for designing it all. I’ve been following ABW for a long time – I loved that the wraps from their original lines were machine woven, but look and feel handwoven. I also reviewed two wraps from their Heirloom line earlier this year.

Midnight Sky arrived pre-washed, which I loved. I was able to throw Tot up right away, without having to wait to wash and air dry. Thank you Lisa! First thing I noticed was MS is extremely soft. It only had one wash and it was our first time up, and it was already soft. Not much to do to speed up the breaking in process.

I threw Tot up in a ruck, Shepherd’s Carry, reinforced ruck and a scarf carry. Those are my go-to’s for shorter wraps. MS shined in all of the carries. There was no digging in the shoulder at all. The wrap was extremely cushy, but pretty solid. There’s limited give, which might change a tiny bit as I break in the wrap more – but it stayed still in every carry. I didn’t have to adjust any passes at all.

Right now I feel the wrap is a bit on the dense side, it’s slightly cumbersome. I feel like that will change as the wrap gets broken in more. I have a feeling it will mold to me more as time goes on.

Midnight Sky is 100% cotton – so very low maintenance. I can throw it into the wash, without worry of the different fibers. MS barely picks up any dirt when we’re out. It had a great time at the beach, where I just had to shake out the sand. There are no special washing directions, and I don’t see it being too prone to pulls either (but be careful with jewelry and uneven nails – just in case!).

I wouldn’t say that Midnight Sky is hot. It’s dense, but not too heavy. I wouldn’t quite say airy either. Maybe right in between?

Midnight Sky is pretty grippy. You can feel the texture of the wrap when you rub your fingers on it. You can definitely feel the weave. MS is floppy already and it’s just going to get better with time, that’s for sure.

Here are some macro shots of the weave, because I love macro shots.

 

Midnight Sky noir weft will be released Tuesday, April 18 at 2pm EDT on Apple Blossom Wovens’ website. It’s a limited release, so you don’t want to miss it!

There’s also a separate release for ABW’s international fans. The international release is Wednesday, April 19 at 7am EDT.

  • 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. ⁣
