So we are all used to thick, beastly, flannely Natibaby hemp wraps, right? If this hempy is anything like Music Symphony, it will totally rock your paradigm.Tela is nothing at all like Nati hemp. It is thin and moldable. It has nothing of the beast about it. It's totally different than what we expect from Nati hemp and to be honest, I kind of love it. Without the added density, this hemp wrap should actually be comfortable for wrapping with in warmer temperatures. No joke.
Many of us baby our wraps when it comes to washing. Hemp is one fabric that does not need to be overly babied. Hemp is dense and fibrous. It is an incredibly strong, durable fabric. If you want your hemp wraps to be buttery soft, you will need to break down the hemp fibers (because let's face it, that's what breaking in a wrap is--breaking down the fibers). Heat is going to do that. Many people prefer to wash in warm or hot water and tumble dry on warm or high heat. I do dry my hemp on medium heat and then remove it when damp to air dry. A good steam ironing will also help the breaking in process. Hemp is one of the few fibers that can take the heat and hold up remarkably well. You do not need to wash in warm water or do a warm tumble dry to break hemp in, but the heat is going to hasten the process without the typical wear.
