We try and use fashionable, trendy print cottons and coordinating solids on the reverse side for our slings. Fabrics are pre-washed so they can be thrown in the wash and dried. They are made with 2 - 3" aluminum rings and 2 layers of fabric (one print, the other usually solid) fabric is stitched twice for strength. They're adjustable and roomy (72" x 30") for carrying baby to shop or nurse.
*Not recommended for newborns (under 4 weeks).....or children over 35 lbs (approx. 3 yrs.).
