Review: Baie Slings Trowen Scarlett

Brand: Baie Slings
Type: Trowen Scarlett
Blend: 100% combed cotton
Size: 3

This elegant wrap arrived a few weeks ago, and we've been using it regularly since then. A combination of red and purple, Scarlett is a beautiful wrap, with enough contrast to see the intricate Trowen pattern, whilst remaining subtle and elegant. 
Scarlett is one of Baie Slings' tighter 'snug' weave wraps, making it smoother and denser than my other Trowen wraps (apart from Trowen Nightingale, which is also a 'snug' weave). It has a small amount of texture to hold the wrap in place, but also has a lot of glide making it easy to wrap with. It arrived feeling soft and ready to wrap with, and has continued to soften with use. Scarlett is mouldable yet sturdy, and supports my toddler's weight beautifully with no sag.
We are really enjoying Scarlett, as it is so quick and easy to use. I've been using it mainly in a hip-cross-carry, which is a one shouldered carry with a slip knot. Scarlett works really well with a slip-knot, as it adjusts easily, and is very comfortable in a one-shouldered carry. The rich colour of Scarlett is going to be perfect during the Christmas season, although we won't be saving it just for then - we will be using it all year round!
