Default handwoven wrap?

i stumbled across this listing on craigslist for handwoven baby blankets, and i was wondering if anyone knew if the material would work as a wrap? her website says she does some custom blankets and such, but no mention of wraps so i don't know if they would even be an option, much less how much they would cost. but, just curious

Seems to me it would work with the right measurements

She probably doesn't do carriers because liability issues. Insurance for baby carrier makes can be super pricey and you still need to lots of safety testing to be legit.


But man, I want a blanket!

I think you'll be having a chance to ask her yourself. I just got an email from her asking if it would be OK if she joined the board, since she saw that someone had posted a link here. Of course I told her that we'd love to have her, and that there's a lot more going on here than cloth diapers. Hopefully she'll come check it out for herself soon.

that would be awesome to have her here!! I would love a handwoven wrap. I have made my own osnaburg, and as long as she is not held liable for any injuries, I dont see the problem! I would love to know what she would charge for a 5.2 M wrap!! LOL!

Yep - I found my way here after the lovely note from Melody saying it would be ok for me to join and post about what I sell.

I would love to start weaving wraps, but need more information. I think they need to be thinner fabric than my baby blankets. I have a strip of the baby blanket fabric I can send as samples. I wove a custom shawl to go around mom and the baby. It was 80" long and 28" wide.

I never though about liability issues for making wraps. ugh.

Thanks Audrey!

I try to weave things everyone will like and will be able to use for years.

I was reading your about you section earlier and was googling some of the techniques you were describing.

And although I can't knit or do anything with fiber to save my file I'm fascinated with looms. I love them and love watching them at work.

I'd love to learn weaving. Why must Idaho be so far from Texas? Wraps are thinner than what our blankets seem to be, but gosh, those are gorgeous and I want one soooo bad!

Thank you Jenn - Wraps are coming. I just need to do some more research and some sample fabric before I jump in.
~~~~~~~
Boise Idaho is a long way from anywhere. There are weavers in Texas and I'm sure you could find someone to teach you.

There are some groups about an hour away, but I just can't make that right now with the twins so young. One day... Lol
