Stype: Starry Night Marina
Blend: 46% lambswool, 52% cotton
I was very, very lucky to catch one of these beautiful Starry Night wraps from Oscha's boutique range last week. There are only 15 of these wraps, so I count myself very lucky to have one!
Once again Oscha have produced a Starry Night wrap in a different blend, and once again it brings many different wrapping qualities. When I first opened it, I was thrilled to see the stunning colour is very different to my other Starry Night wraps. The wrap itself feels slightly thicker in hand compared to other Starry Nights, and is totally different to SN Maya (another woolly Starry Night). Before washing, it has that slight 'itchy' feeling that you often get with lambswool, but after a careful wash, cool iron and a bit of use, it is already loosing the 'itch'! It arrived beautiful soft, and amazingly cushy. It isn't as thick as Strato Aequus, which also contains lambswool, but it definitely has a similar feel. I don't often carry using a Ruck, and very rarely with a size 2, as I find it pulls too much on my shoulders, but this wrap honestly had enough cush to keep a basic Ruck comfortable for a while.
I am totally impressed with this wrap, and look forward to the cooler weather so that we can get more use out of it!
I have been asked about a variety of colour comparisons between Marina and other wraps, so I've included those pictures here.
