I have one word for this wrap....Stunning!!
I just received this and my jaw dropped. The stock photos did not do this wrap justice (which is why I've included a couple of other photos)
This is a jacquard weave woven in a beautiful plum purple and turquoise colored threads.
Release Date: 13 January 2014
No official weight, but this is a lighter weight silk.
Natibaby silk is known for being fairly dense and thick; however, this is one of the lighter weight, airier weaves. It is not old school Nati silk, which was super thick and dense. Despite being thinner, it still breaks in to be super soft and snuggly.
Nati's wrap are hit or miss on the silk smell. Sometimes it has that distinctive scent; other times it does not. I can not smell silk, but some people are quite sensitive to it. If this is the case, I find that if you can air the wrap out for a couple of days in a room where there is good air flow, the smell does dissipate quite a bit. If you stick it in a closet for a couple of days, chances are the silk smell is going to be there, so make sure it truly airs out. Sometimes the silk scent can linger even after a wash.
Silk does require gentle care. It should be hand washed in cool water or on your washing machine's delicate or silk cycle, although I do strongly recommend hand washing. Silk wraps should be hung to dry. To fluff them up, you can put them in the dryer and tumble on a no heat setting for 5 minutes.
