The first run of Flamenco Hemp Indio offered fabulous support. I am hoping this second run does as well.
This should be nice, cushy thick hemp blend. Typically, hemp provides awesome toddler support and since my youngest is almost two, we are all about toddler support these days.
Many of us baby our wraps when it comes to washing. Hemp is one fabric that does not need to be overly babied. Hemp is dense and fibrous. It is and incredibly strong, durable fabric. If you want your hemp wraps to be buttery soft, you will need to break down the hemp fibers (because lets face it, that's what breaking in a wrap is--breaking down the fibers). Heat is going to do that. Many people prefer to wash in warm or hot water and tumble dry on warm or high heat. I do dry my hemp on medium heat and then remove it when damp to air dry. A good steam ironing will also help the breaking in process. Hemp is one of the few fibers that can take the heat and hold up remarkably well. You do not need to wash in warm water or do a warm tumble dry to break hemp in, but the heat is going to hasten the process without the typical wear.
Hemp tends to retain heat, so it can be warmer to wear in hotter temperatures.
