Tekhni Wovens Adamas Panda

  • 55% cotton, 45% linen
  • $$
  • Machine woven
  • Support: Average
  • Best for: All babies
  • Carries: Great with all!

I haven’t been able to play with a Tekhni in a minute, so it was nice to get one back in the house. We were able to play with Adamas Panda, which is one of their newer designs. It’s a mixture of floral and geometrical designs. In the photos, it looks like a black and some kinda of silvery color, but it’s really the natural linen weft. That natural linen weft really makes the black look shimmery. First look: shimmery black with a fun design, thin.

So I think this linen blend is pretty much love. Sometimes my shoulders question thin wraps. They don’t like the digginess that sometimes happens with thin wraps. But I didn’t have that with Panda. It’s thin due to the linen blend, so I wouldn’t say there was any cushiness. But my shoulders didn’t want to fight me at all. There is limited give in the wrap. I didn’t really see much stretch in it at all, but I think that has to do with the linen as well. So it made for a really solid wrap. I wrapped Tot in a reinforced ruck, so you could see both sides of the wrap in photos and it stayed put. It didn’t budge at all.

The moldability on Panda is there. You can see how each pass hugs Tot’s back and he had a pretty decent seat. I think the thinness really helped with how each pass molded to us. I think it would be even more amazing once it was fully broken in. I could see this wrap definitely being considered a workhorse wrap in our house. It looks like it should be delicate with the design and shimmer. But in reality, with this linen? It would be put to work. I can see it being used every day. You don’t have to worry about too much dirt, because of the color of the wrap. It’s thin, so I could use it when it’s hot out and then do multi passes when it’s cold out. It’s airy. Definitely breathable. The weave doesn’t seem to be too prone to pulling, but be careful as always. There aren’t any special washing directions, due to the blend. But as always, I recommend checking with Tekhni and following their recommendations.

Panda is pretty grippy, which the texture of this weave. I might have had to wiggle a bit to get that last pass over Tot’s behind, but it wasn’t too bad. I wouldn’t consider Panda to be a sticky wrap at all. The thinness makes it pretty easy to tie a knot, so that was nice. Tot’s favorite part was running his hand over the wrap, because he loved feeling the design. It pops out a bit, as you can see in some of the macros. The texture is slightly bumpy.

This wrap is on its way to being floppy. I would love for it to come back around after it becomes more broken in. It flops down into a pile pretty well, but the linen stiffness is still kind of there.

Hey hey hey! Check out these macros. As you know macros are my favorite part. I love how you can see the weave of the design. And it’s almost like you can reach out and feel the texture of the wrap. Up close, you can see that it’s a natural linen weft and not some kind of silver. I just love how the black and natural linen make the design pop though. I wouldn’t mind playing with some more linen – I’m excited to see what else Tekhni comes up with. I love that it’ll be supportive enough for Tot, and with a little more usage, broken in enough for Dumpling. They still have some ring slings left in the shop!

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. โฃ

I got a chance to check out @heritagedistillingโ€™s award-winning BSB @BrownSugarBourbon and it is simply delicious. Itโ€™s got that brown sugar taste with just a hint of cinnamon, which makes it the perfect drink as we transition to autumn.โฃ
โฃ
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 itโ€™s season!) and a Rickey (who doesnโ€™t love a Rickey?!). They really complemented our weekend meal.โฃ

Thank you @heritagedistilling & @brownsugarbourbon for gifting me these products! #DrinkingBSB #BrownSugarBourbon #sponsored #ad
  • I would love to be a @magnatiles brand rep! Itโ€™s one of the toys that work for all the ages and my kids get along so well when theyโ€™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

  • Iโ€™ve been holding off on posting these @dermae products because I wanted to try them. Iโ€™ve placed them on my tattoos and on Birdieโ€™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. โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €
