The original baby wrap since 1972. Ecologically impeccable, produced regionally, extremely durable and comfortable.
A Didymos woven wrap is the epitome of quality. All their wraps are super comfortable as well as durable and their method of weaving allows them to be breathable as well, which is key in HK's climate. Get a linen blend for extra breathability, hemp blend for extra durability or a silk blend for extra softness - or get the classic 100% cotton for an excellent year-round carrier!
Alongside with cotton they use other high quality materials for our wraps like hemp, linen and silk. DIDYMOS presents the highest quality challenges to its suppliers. All yarns are processed under our survey in Germany and Austria.
Didymos' baby slings are tested regularly by the ECO institute and they have always been been evaluated as „einwandfrei“ (impeccable).
Jersey Stripes Indio Jacquard
DIDYMOS Baby Wraps and Slings are manufactured without any textile glaze or other chemical ingredients. We only use organic cotton (cultivated in accordance with strict organic standards) and ecologically sound, absolutely metal free, skin friendly dyes. There is no need to wash your wrap or sling before using it unless you want the wrap fabric to be softer right from the start
Unless differently specified, all DIDYMOS cotton Baby Wraps and Slings can be washed at 60°C/140°F on a delicates programme). For blended fabrics made from other natural fibres follow the care instructions specified below.
Use little, preferably liquid detergent that is suited and recommended for the fabric in question (make sure that the detergent is WITHOUT optical brighteners, bleaching or softening agents. Detergent residue or mineral accumulations reduce the elasticity of the fabric. We therefore recommend to use water softener if your water is hard.
Hint: Pour some vinegar into the softener compartment of the washing machine for he last rinse. This helps to avoid such accumulations and reduces the typical smell of detergent. Your laundry won’t smell like anything not even like vinegar.
One more tip: Do not over-load your washing machine but leave enough room for wash and rinse water. This is important for all textiles.
Do spin-dry your DIDYMOS Wrap or Sling at low speed. Wraps made of wool, alpaca, silk or cashmere blends must NOT be spin-dried.
Make sure not to dry your DIDYMOS Wrap or Sling at high temperatures – preferably use the delicates setting of the tumbler. Wraps made from wool, cashmere or silk must NOT be dried in the tumbler.
We recommend to iron your DIDYMOS Wrap or Sling after the wash, this is especially true for fabric blends with linen or hemp. Ironing is advisable for all wraps, be they made from cotton or cotton blends, as it helps to prevent folds from forming always in the same places which might affect the durability of the fabric.
Linen or Hemp
Baby Wraps or Slings made of linen or hemp are a little stiff coming off the weaving frame, however, they soften quickly when being used. You can speed up the process by pulling your DIDYMOS Wrap or Sling through warm water and letting it air-dry before using it for the first time. Undyed DIDYMOS linen or hemp Wraps or Slings can be washed at temperatures of up to 90°C/190°F (hot). This may, however, cause the fabric to lighten and fade. It is IMPORTANT to wash your DIDYMOS linen or hemp Wrap or Sling with liquid detergent ONLY!
