Type: Roses Hera
Blend: 100% combed cotton
I have loved Oscha's Roses Noel wrap since the first time I saw it, as it is a beautiful and striking green and red combination. I've never been able to buy one, as they now sell for a lot of money, so I was delighted when I saw Oscha had produced a similar wrap. Roses Hera is a 100% combed cotton wrap in red and pale green/grey. The green cotton can look different in different light conditions, and sometimes looks like a moss green colour, and other times looks a silvery grey. It is a more subtle version of Roses Noel, and although I still adore the original, Roses Hera is a lovely, more affordable, alternative.
The combed cotton gives Hera a wonderful luxurious feel, and it arrived feeling lovely and soft, and hasn't required a lot of breaking in. I'm finding Hera very easy to wrap with, and although the roses pattern is fairly textured, Hera appears to glide into place a lot easier than some of the other Oscha roses I've tried. It is a beautifully supportive wrap, and it offers a lovely cush on the shoulders, making it very comfortable even with my large toddler.
I'm delighted with Hera, and despite my wrap being a second grade, I can't find any flaws on it! The red colour is the same as used in the Eros and Aphrodite wraps, and it is remarkable what a difference the green/grey colour makes to the overall appearance of these roses. I find this wrap really comfortable and classy, and can't wait to wear it at Christmas time (although we'll be wearing it during the rest of the year aswell!).
