Diva Milano Merletti with Linen: Como is one of the models of the new autumn/winter 2014 collection, made from cotton/linen blend (77% Egyptian cotton, 23% linen). It is a tricolor, with blue cotton and sea green linen threads in weft.
The wrap is quite soft right from the box, it needs very little breaking in to soften, with a very good support. Surface density is 300 g/m2 due to a thickened warp.
Only Egyptian cotton is used in production of Diva Milano wraps. This is the finest and most expensive type of cotton with extra-long staples, usually produced by luxury brands' bed linen and clothes, often mixed with silk. This cotton plant produces long, thin fibers that won't pill. Threads are light but strong, silky and soft. With proper care, baby wraps from Egyptian cotton will last several decades, which justifies a higher price tag.
