Vanamo Kide Ruka contains 30 % linen, 30 % merino wool and 40 % GOTS certified organic cotton. The wrap was named after an arctic hill "Rukatunturi" in Finland. Soft natural white cotton mixed with marine blue wool and linen brings out the beautiful Kide pattern! Vanamo woven wraps are made from pure organic cotton, high quality Italian linen and easycare superwash merino wool.
Kide cotton-linen-wool wrap combines all the good qualities of linen and wool. The linen gives strength and great support - wool offers softness & elasticity. Kide weave is diagonally elastic which means that the baby wrap gives optimum support for the baby and feels comfortable for both the wearer and the child. Linen and wool are breathable & thermoregulating materials. This wrap works great in hot and humid climates. And it feels equally comforting in the chilly autumn and winter days. This thick wrap is great for heavy babies and toddlers. A new wrap can feel a little stiff at first but the fabric will soften up quite quickly when you start using it.
The word ”kide” means ice chrystals and the Kide pattern was inspired by the traditional hand woven Finnish linen textiles. The Kide weave is a complex mixture of twill and tabby weaves which create the unique stuctured, porous and comfortable weave. Kide pattern is designed by textile designer Katja Hynninen.
