Diva Milano first introduced Veneziano VIola in its Lace Collection (autumn/winter of 2011-2012). The Veneziano pattern is an all over lace pattern, reminiscent of venetian lace. This Veneziano is 100% cotton and is part of the Baroque (2013) collection. This was a gorgeous woolie wrap and I am so happy to see it being woven in cotton, which will be perfect for year round wearing.
The woolie viola was a tri-weave, with red-violet and blue threads woven together to create a complex violet color.The cotton version is a tri-weave as well, with blue and pink weft threads and a natural colored warp.
Divas feel pretty soft straight out of the box. They tend to catch people off guard because they are so thin. Despite being so thin, these are supportive wraps. Even the 100% cotton wraps are toddler worthy! They are exceptionally wide; the added with help creates greater support for your wrappee. The weave on these wraps is fairly tight, which helps create a solid tensile strength for supporting bigger babies and toddlers.
The cotton Divas are not that difficult to break in. A good wash and air dry, followed by a tumble on low heat and a good steam ironing will break the wrap in, but the 100% cotton wraps are moldable and soft right out of the package.
