What baby wearing momma wouldn't love a handwoven wrap? Woven with 100% mercerized cotton, these wraps are soft and cuddly. Wraps are about 26" to 28" wide and can be woven to any length. If the length you want is not listed below, please contact me for a price.
How the Custom Order process works
I will be taking orders for baby wraps some time in January or February 2015 . The exact date and time will be announced on my Facebook page and a link to the order form will be posted. It's so hard not to keep adding people to the custom order list, but I have to keep it somewhat manageable. I will continue to have random draws each month. Those opportunities will be announced on my Facebook page.
When you place an order, a copy will be sent to you. When I receive the order, I will add them to my weaving list and send out a confirmation with the approximate month the wrap will be woven. If you do not receive these two e-mails, please check your junk file.
A month or so before your wraps goes on the loom I will be in contact to again confirm the color choice and other details of the order.
About a week before wraps on the list come up to be woven, I will send out an e-mail to alert customers their wrap is nearing the top of the list and request payment. When it's time to pay for your custom woven baby wrap, I'll send you a link to a page with buy buttons to pay for the correct size. I will weave the wraps that have been paid for and the others will be nudged down the list until payment is received.
Colors for Woven Baby Wraps
All wraps will start with a white cotton warp on the loom. You choose the weft color the wrap will be woven in and the pattern. Before each run of wraps, I will order yarn in the colors that have been requested. This will allow the greatest variety of color choices but will require advance planning for all custom wraps.The best place to see all the colors I can order is http://halcyonyarn.com/products/yarn/0841530L.html Click on one of the colors and the swatch on the right will change to that color. The name and color numbers appear just to the right under the swatch. I will need both of the numbers and the name to be sure I order the right color for your wrap.
Be sure to pick an alternate color or two. At times colors are on backorder till the dye house can dye a new batch of yarn.

Extra Charges for stripes and pattern changes
Stripes are an additional $10 to $12 per meter, depending on the number of colors and how the stripes are done.
Charges for stripes on the tails and pattern changes will be figured for each wrap and will depend on the complexity of the changes and the extra time required. Most will be between $15 and $25 per wrap.
My handwoven wraps have stretch and give in the fabric. This is due to a combination of factors: size of the yarn, weave structure, and I am not a machine.
I measure wraps while they are laying on a table. If you pick the wrap up and measure it running a tape down one rail, the wrap will stretch and measure longer from it's own weight pulling it down. From the feedback I have received, there is a difference of about 3 1/2" per meter. So depending on your preferences, you may want to order a little shorter wrap.
Care of Handwoven Baby Wraps
All wraps have been washed twice before they are mailed out. I wash them on a regular washing cycle in my front loading machine with warm & cold settings. They are dried on Medium heat. The fabric with stand more vigorous washing if needed. Just remember that the washer and dryer can be harder on fabric and wear it out faster than normal wearing. So wash with care to keep your wrap looking good longer.
Do not bleach. This will distort the colors of the wrap and bleach can damage the fibers over time.
Iron as needed using the proper setting for cotton on your iron.
