Raspberry is a new pattern from Natibaby. It looks a bit more delicate than Orchids, but is bold and bright in an amazing fuschia colorway.
This is a jacquard weave woven in fuschia and white threads. I would actually say that this is more of a hot pink than fuschia. For me, fuschia has purple undertones and this color is more just right-in-your-face hot pink.
60% Bamboo Viscose
Release Date: 3 June 2013
Those of you who love Nati's bamboo/no cotton blends should be squealing with delight. They have released a series of no cotton blends and Raspberry is yet another no cotton blend to add to that collection.
The viscose bamboo from Nati this year feels a tad different than what was being released last year. It does not have the same overtly slick and unnatural feel. Well, for the most part. Each bamboo wrap this year has felt different, most likely because we have had consistently different bamboo blends come through the store this year.
For the most part, the bamboo blends have been feeling fairly dense and heavy brand new out of the package. The hemp/bamboo blends were particularly deceptive since they did feel like a typical heavy Nati no cotton blend; however, after a wash and a brief tumble dry, they have floofed up wonderfully and feel incredibly light. I have no idea if the linen bamboo blends will be like this. Based on experience with Nati's linen, it could go either way. Nati linen has been quite thick lately, but the last couple of linen releases have been quite light weight and dare I say it, almost airy in feel and texture.
Ring slings listed are standard Nati ring sling with a pleated shoulder
