When using the half-linen sling for the first time it might be a bit stiff, but after a while it will become smooth and cuddly very quickly. The irregular weaving aspect (nodules and buds) are a typical quality characteristic for weaved materials that are made of half linen.
You can use our HOPPEDIZ® baby slings with many carrying variants. The detailed and illustrated tying instructions supplied with each sling have been established together with the occupational therapist and carrying consultant Bettina Attenberger, and they are based on the knowledge of the Trageschule Dresden®. The compact instructions show step by step how to tie our baby sling. You may order our tying instructions even separately.
Special features of the HOPPEDIZ® baby sling:
- Two labels mark the centre of the sling. This makes it much easier for you to find the centre when tying.
- The baby sling is cut diagonally/parallel at the ends so that the ends of the sling are easier to knot, making sure that they are not too thick or bulky.
- The natural yarns are dyed before machine weaving (yarn dyeing). Therefore, our colourful but unpretentious designs are truly colour-fast. Thanks to this, our baby slings still look new even after countless washes – naturally using washing powder without fluorescent whitening agents.
Which baby sling length do you require?
We offer our baby slings in different lengths in order to optimally correspond to your needs. The length of the baby sling depends on the height and weight of the person carrying it. It is important to make sure that the sling best fits the person who will use it the most often!
If, for example, a woman is shorter than 1.75 m or weighs less than 75 kg, but her partner is much taller or heavier, it is not absolutely necessary to buy a maxi sling (5.40m). It is only worthwhile purchasing a maxi sling if the larger partner will be carrying it a lot. Otherwise, we recommend the long sling (approx. 4.60 m). With this, a large man (e.g. 1.95 m/95 kg) can still tie the simple cross-carry or the simple rucksack-carry. We have a medium sized sling (approx. 3.70 m) for very small people of normal weight or also for very dainty parents up to a size of approx. 1.70 m. Our short baby sling (approx. 2.50 m) is excellently suitable for hip carrying, and it is easy and quick to tie up.
