When choosing a wrap, I often look for colors I enjoy wearing in tops. Because a woven wrap covers much of my torso, I like to think of wraps as an extension of my outfit. When I saw this pink from Tekhni I fell in love….but as a Mom to 3 boys I wondered if should I go for it?! Well…as you can see…we did! This Tekhni Thalia in the color Emma, size 7 is beautiful!
In addition to amazing color, rich in saturation and depth, Thalia feels thin to the touch and is made of 100% Mercerized cotton. It’s supportive, densely woven and although it does require ‘breaking in’ it’s moldable. As if eye-catching color and pattern weren’t enough, Thalia has grip and a bit of sheen that changes with movement and light. The floral pattern is stunning from every angle and there doesn’t seem to be a wrong way to place it! The width (like all Tekhni’s we’ve encountered) makes a great seat (below) and creates a very comfortable carry for both my baby and I. I would recommend this to the new Mom equally as I would to someone with a healthy sized baby like mine and believe that the weight of this wrap has appeal to a wide range of babywearers.
The pattern name Thalia is derived from the Greek Muse Thaleia who was known as the joyful one, also quite literally the blooming one. (2) The color shown here (Emma) is both rich and deep and the wrap has been offered in other colors including Alena, Flame, Frost and Midas. Last I checked I saw a few Frost in the etsy shop! After seeing this pattern…I think I need to plant this flower in my yard! Do you think Lowes carries it? Yes…spring time project!
Keep in mind that all new woven wraps shrink both in width and length after a wash, and the wrap will range approximately around that g/m2 throughout use. Make sure to follow a wrap’s specific instructions for the best results. Tekhni recommends ‘an initial wash in hot water with low spin…with subsequent washes on a gentle cycle with cool water using a natural detergent without optical brighteners. Post wash, Thalia should be tumble dried on low, followed with a warm steam iron’ although I usually set my iron to ‘cotton’ to release wrinkles from this beauty. (3)
