Our cotton and linen only needs to be washed at 30 degrees. We don’t recommend bleach as it can damage fabric.
Do not use fabric softener with your slings - it reduces the life of the fabric and makes it lose grip.
We do not recommend tumble drying in our washing instructions as it decreases the life of any fabric. Having said that, running it on a low temperature can help soften and ‘break in’ your sling.
It is a good idea to steam iron your cotton and linen slings after washing. Not only does it make them pretty and help to soften the fabric but it avoids the fabric creasing along the same lines repeatedly, which can lead to wear.
Try not to let linen dry completely if you are going to iron – linen is much easier to iron whilst damp. If you dry linen completely in the tumble dryer it may appear to have drastically shrunk. The fibres have just been compacted together and will return to normal after a quick press with an iron (and a spray of water). Using your sling will also stretch it back out again.
Ring slings are elegant and are often used for special occasions such as Christenings and weddings. They are quick to use, especially handy for short trips from the car to shop, or for a child that wants up and down a lot. They are also light and pack up small.
We offer two shoulder styles for our ring slings. Our original Highland Pleat Shoulder was developed working closely with our highly experienced tailor. It is similar to the intricate pleat work on kilts, specifically the Kingussie kilt, which is one of the oldest styles and is unique in utilising both box and knife pleats. The design looks elegant and is extremely comfortable to wear. Symmetrical pleats move away from the centre of the sling to ensure an even distribution of the baby's weight whilst moulding easily around the wearer's shoulder.
We are now adding the Gathered Ring Sling Shoulder to our products. This has been widely used by babywearers for quite some time now and is a tried and tested favourite. This shoulder style is relatively unstructured as the fabric is gathered directly through the rings with no folds. This allows you to spread and move the fabric very easily on your shoulder for even weight distribution.
Oscha ring slings can also be worn on either shoulder. We include an instruction brochure with each sling, please take time to study this and practice as ring slings are extremely comfy and easy to use but it can take a little time and some adjustment to hit the sweet spot!
Our sling rings measure 190cm - 2m after washing and have been thoroughly safety tested.
