Oh man--this is one heck of a chic wrap. The Fumus pattern has really developed a cult-like following (and I can see why-it is a great pattern). This is an amazing grey silk release. It's a perfect neutral and will be able to be worn seamlessly into the Fall. It's just really the perfect grey.
This is a jacquard weave woven in grey and natural colored threads.
Release date: 4 July 2013
For the most part, Natibaby silk is known for being fairly dense and thick. Out of the package, it can be bulky and awkward with which to wrap. But after breaking in, Nati silk wraps tend to be marshmallowy soft. Because of their thickness, Nati silk blend wraps tend to offer good support for heavier babies and toddlers.
However, the most recent silk releases have been less dense and much easier with which to wrap. (I'm thinking of Red Blue silk Morris). They still have that awesome Nati silk marshmallowey softness after being broken in, but they are a bit more manageable. I am hoping Fumus Batu is like this.

These wraps are considered second quality. What does it mean if your wrap is second quality? It typically means it might come with some small weaving flaws such as small pulled or broken threads, skipped threads, a bit more nubbiness than normal or there might be some other flaw found on the factory flaw that might not be distinguishable to the general customer. These flaws are considered cosmetic and do not affect the safety of the wrap. I try to look over the wraps and figure out what exactly the flaw is before shipping. Large flaws are noted.
