Corvus takes flight but not before some Elliott geekery
Sweet departures I’m going through a stage of “can’t keep all the wraps”. Maybe it’s the impending third birthday of Smallest or that I wish to play with lots more wraps. Or both. Nevertheless, in a fit of brash listing, up went my semi custom Lawilde Elliott Corvus. I love this wrap. So much so ...

Mama Twofish fiddle necklace and Linuschka Owls Llama reviews
I’ve been mulling over this review for a few weeks as I know it needs to be critical and I will do my best, but in the face of what is probably my most equally enjoyed sling (McQueen is the other), it’s going to be difficult. This review is two-fold, taking in the Linuschka but ...

Review - a love letter to Ruck n Roll's Artemis
A love letter to Ruck n Roll’s Artemis Dear Artemis When you arrived I could have buried my face into your cloud like softness. I couldn’t believe it when Zoe told me you were 347g m/sq; you hide your weight well. You have a texture like cotton wool that is so gentle, so fluffy, I ...

Coco-N Barbarian prototype arrives
I am an unashamed brand tart in many ways. Not because I want to be all over the place when it comes to different wrap brands but because I am intensely curious about new designs, blends and developments in the babywearing world. I was really touched to be asked by a new company, Coco-N Babywearing ...

Voronoi Scandium, Tweed Amalia, Silver Ghost - reviews in brief
I have become something I never thought I would be; a bit of a churner when it comes to my stash. There is a great sense that I’m on limited time for carrying and with so many beautiful wraps out there to be tried, I’m a regular friend of the post lady as packages fly ...

That Gorse is mine 3

That Gorse is mine
I have yet to try so many wraps but in my experience thus far I’ve had wraps that are beautiful but a pain in the arse to use, some that are pleasant all rounders, others that are lush. Then, very seldom, I’ve had wraps that have made my heart swoon.      I received one ...
