Emmeline Textiles Juno Squares V2

• Best for: Any Age

• Carries: Great with all!

I received Emmeline Textiles’ Juno Squares Version 2 in the traveler program and I was excited to try it out. Their program has a lot of options for caregivers to check out all kinds of wraps. I haven’t played with Juno Squares yet, so I wanted to play around a bit.

Juno Squares V2 is a thin wrap. Very thin – but not in a bad way. I wouldn’t consider the shoulders to be cushy. But I wouldn’t consider them to be diggy either. The shoulders didn’t dig in any of the carries (ruck, double hammock, front wrap cross carry) that I ended up trying.

There is limited give to this wrap. Ignore the sloppy wrap job. It was a size that I wasn’t quite used to, so I struggled a bit. It gave a good chest pass. Just barely any stretch, so it molded across my chest a bit. The wrap is pretty solid, it doesn’t relax much with use. I didn’t have to readjust or tighten with use.

I definitely wouldn’t consider Juno Squares V2 to be a cumbersome wrap. It’s leaning towards the Ace Wrap category, but without a huge amount of stretch. The moldability is almost there. This isn’t a delicate wrap, but it is natty – so I wouldn’t quite consider it a workhorse if you are prone to dropping stuff. Stains don’t tend to stay on Emmeline Textiles’ 100% cotton wraps. Like always, I do recommend following the company’s care instructions.

Juno Squares is pretty airy. It’s thin, so it doesn’t retain heat. Passes do glide pretty well, with a tiny bit of texture from the weave. The squares remind me more of a basket weave pattern than anything. It’s pretty easy to tie a double knot of a slip knot. No extra wiggling it shimmying to get the wrap into place.

The wrap is slightly bumpy from the texture of the pattern – you can see it in the photo above. And eek – baby feet! I love baby feet. The wrap is pretty floppy already, and I bet will continue to be more so as it continues on to the other hosts.

All in all – great wrap. Single passes for the little ones and I recommend multi passes for the bigger kids. Thin but not diggy. Textured but not too textured where it’s too grippy. Another win from EmTex.

  • Playing with this @heirloomcarrier has been so much fun. I haven’t played with dupioni before and it was so supportive. A little crunchy but I’ll take it with the ultimate support. ⁣

  • 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. ⁣

  • Checking out this bourette silk tester, Everdeen from @waywardwovens has been fun. I love checking out new fibers and seeing their wrap qualities. I’ll  have a more in-depth review on the blog later this week 💕⁣
