Everything You Need to Know about Linuschka's Toddlerworthy Wraps

Here are some of our precious blends, mindfully selected to bring out the best wrapping qualities for comfortable toddler wearing.
Our top recommendations for toddlerhood and beyond
When silk meets silk there's always a spark.
In the pursuit of creating the strongest blend we paired two of our most luxurious yarns known for their grip, support, incredible texture and magical way of literally lifting the weight off your shoulders. Our Japanese silk-tussah blend is cushy, sturdy, thick, dry, grippy, slightly stubborn but nevertheless the most reliable for hour long, comfortable wearing. With continuous love and care it will turn into the softest companion.
In creating a lighter and more airy version of the ultimate wrap we turned to linen, a beloved yarn that has been with Linuschka from the very beginning. We love linen for its lightweight, summery feel and cooling properties so we paired it with silk for added strength, grip, support and that extra dash of softness to counterbalance linen's crispy texture. Our tussah-linen and Japanese silk-linen blends are much loved during summer and beyond and are a great choice for when you're looking for a medium breaking in process.
Sea Island Cotton came as a natural choice in our search for the most luxurious, smooth and exquisitely soft of all cottons. With its silky feeling and spongy texture SIC can beautifully transform any wrap making it incredibly malleable and gentle on the shoulders. Our Japanese silk-SIC and tussah-SIC blends are known for their unmatched cush, grip/glide balance, support, lack of bounce and ease of wrapping either in single or double layer. A similar strength and support can also be found in cotton-tussah blends or Japanese silk-cotton blends as well.
Clouds on your shoulders, soft and supple against your skin
In easing the transition between baby and toddlerhood we strive to create blends that work as perfect all-rounders with enough strength to carry your toddler and plenty of softness to envelop your baby. Our yarn of choice when it comes to overwhelming softness and drape is seaCell. Infused with wellness and antibacterial properties, SeaCell is breathable, light and incredibly smooth.
When paired with Japanese silk, this blend comes with a clouds on shoulders guarantee, cush, a marshmallow and spongy feel and incredible support regardless of the stage of your wearing journey.
Equally sumptuous in feel is our tussah/seaCell blend. Tussah alone is a very textured and strong yarn, but paired with seaCell its "rough" feel gets toned down creating a buttery soft wrap even fresh off the loom. With a lovely bounce it easily comes as a first choice for the transitional period, being a reliable companion until early toddlerhood. Eri silk should not be overlooked either - its natural reddish colour and uneven texture makes for the most gorgeous of wraps and paired with seaCell it can turn soft and malleable after only a few wears.
Evoking the softness and lustrous feel of cashmere, soy is an excellent choice when looking for a vegan alternative. Breathable, airy and enriched with antibacterial and absorbent properties, soy equals seaCell in drape and cush while providing an extra pillar of support when paired with tussah or Japanese silk. Gentle on your shoulders and subtle on your skin. Strong and comfortable and all year round.
