Sold out.

Are you a fan of Steampunk? Then Natibaby's Gears is the perfect wrap for you. Interlocking gears churn across the length of this wrap evoking clashing images of anachronistic machines and steam engines. 

This is a jacquard weave woven in navy and natural colored tussah threads. The Gears and Cogs pattern are often confused (I know I have done so myself). Cogs have more gears across the body of the wrap. Gears do not have as many gears across the body of the wrap.

These wraps are our leftovers from the pre-order. 

70% cotton

Gears is an exclusive woven for the Polish forum, Chusty. 
The use of tussah silk is new for Natibaby. Most tussah silk wraps tend to be on the thin side, but this is nice, heavier weight. I am so curious to see how it will compare to normal Nati sik. 
These are a thick, fatty wrap, but oddly enough, are not necessarily unwieldily. They have a certain lightness to them that is unusual for Natibaby. I actually really enjoy wrapping with these Gears. 
These wraps have the Burt Reynolds hairiness that has been seen on Nati's silk wraps in the past. This is normal for this wrap and the hairiness dissipates after a couple of washes. 
What is tussah silk and how is it different than regular silk? 

Tussah is often called wild or uncultivated silk. As opposed to cultivated silk, tussah silk is gathered from wild or semi-wild silk worms. The silk filaments are collected from the worm's cocoon after the moth has hatched. There are many varieties and shades of wild silk. As the caterpillars eat a variety of vegetation,  the silk can be anywhere from natural to beige to brownish toned. Tussah silks are wildcrafted and thus may be considered "organically raised." They are naturally tan, and generally are stronger and more resilient than cultivated "white" silks.
