Firespiral is a relatively new company, created by two lovely ladies here in the UK, who are both experienced babywearers.  Apart from the testor wraps, this preorder was the first opportunity to own one of their wraps, meaning this must have been an exciting day for Firespiral, seeing the first wraps arrive in their new homes! 
I preordered these beautiful wraps back in April, and I was so thrilled when they arrived this morning. I'm also waiting for a third wrap, which will follow soon. As you may recall, I was lucky enough to test a Firespiral wrap back at the start of May, so I already knew I was going to be pleased with my wraps when they arrived, but I didn't know they were going to be quite so soft and cushy straight from the bag! I always wondered if the testor wrap was so soft because it had already been used and broken-in, but it appears that the softness is a feature of Firespiral wraps right from the start!
The Amber Twilight Starmap combines beautiful deep blue and golden colours, giving the two sides quite a striking contrast. It is such an interesting and intricate design, and the intricacy is not lost when wrapped.  This beautiful wrap is so soft and supportive, even in a Kangaroo carry with a size 3 with my large 19 month old! It wraps easily, and is very comfortable on my shoulders due to its amazing cush!
The Milky Twilight Seafoam contains linen, so I was even more surprised to find it was also amazingly soft on arrival. It is so cushy, with just the right amount of stretch, and the pattern has been very cleverly designed as it looks so great when wrapped! It wraps like a dream, and glides into place beautifully, making it easy to tighten, meaning it is very supportive. 
I really cannot recommend these wraps enough! They should become more easily available over time as there should be another preorder for these designs in the future. They would be great for a beginner, as they arrive soft and ready-to-use, and are really easy to wrap with, and yet the designs are totally unique and beautiful, and the wrapping qualities are fantastic, meaning they should also appeal to more experienced wrappers. They have clearly been designed by experienced babywearers, and I really love the fact that the unique designs still look great whilst wrapped, as I sometimes find that a more detailed design can get lost when wrapped. I am very excited to see what Firespiral has in store for us next!!

    1. Thank you! They're really lovely wraps! :D

  2. Hi Samantha, can you tell me the name of the carry you're doing with the starmap please? Thank you!

    1. Hi! I'm doing a Kangaroo carry with flipped shoulders. I've done a tutorial for this carry here on my blog: Its a great front carry with a shorter wrap :D

  3. Thank you! I have been looking for a front carry to do with a shorter wrap! I just can't really get on with back carries! I also have a size 3 amber star map, so will try it tomorrow! Many thanks!

  4. Are you still happy with them? Are they anymore prone to pulls/slubs than the average wrap? I'm looking for my next wrap, and I LOVE, love, LOVE their designs. TIA.

    1. Hello! Yes, I still really love these three wraps, and have since bought two more Firespiral wraps. I particularly love Seafoam, which has emerged as my favourite. I personally have not had any problems with pulls/slubs. If you love the designs, I would highly recommend these wraps :D
