Didymos India Hanf Natur unboxing

Didymos India Hanf Natur is made from 50% organic cotton and 50% hemp. The weight of the wrap is 310 gr/m2. This is the heaviest wrap Didymos has made so far. The wrap feels very heavy and thick. It will probably take quite some work to break it in and the wrap will be not easy to handle in the beginning. For this reason such wraps are recommended for experienced babywearers.

The color of the wrap is natural white.

Didymos 1975 Azur-Wolle unboxing

Didymos 1975 Azur-Wolle is made from 60% organic cotton and 40% wool. The weight of the wrap is 185 gr/m2 which means that the wrap has medium thickness. It feels incredibly soft and warm right from the box. The first impression is that the wrap should be very moldable and easy to handle. The high percentage of wool will make it a warm and cozy wrap for the coming cold season. Washing and wearing should fluff the wool up.

The wrap has a deep dark blue warp and off-white weft.

Didymos 1975 Cashmere Viola Tussah unboxing

Didymos 1975 Cashmere Viola Tussah is made from 65% organic cotton, 25% cashmere and 10% tussah silk. This is the first Old Standard in such luxurious blend. The weight of the wrap is 190 gr/m2. This would make it a wrap with a medium thickness. The wrap feels soft right from the box. The cashmere part should fluff up after washing and wearing.

The color of the cotton warp is deep viola. The weft goes as 2 separate threads: light beige tussah silk and natural cashmere.

Didymos 1975 Gold with wool unboxing

Didymos Old Standard 1975 Gold with wool is made from 50 % cotton , 25% alpaca and 25% wool. The weight of the wrap is 255 gr/m2 which makes it a rather thick and heavy wrap. Size 6 hardly fits into the box and the cover of size 7 simply falls off. Right out of the box the wrap is hard and a bit scratchy. A proper wash on a gentle wool/silk program will tame the scratchy yarns and make it a wonderful heavy and wrap wrap - exactly what we need during the approaching cold winter days and nights.

The color of the Didymos Old Standard 1975 Gold with wool  is bright yellow-orange with some orange-red inwovens. From the distance the wrap looks quite even, but a close look will reveal the slight contrast.

A joke which Russians will understand. Feel free to help me translate into English, or may be you know the analogy. :D

"Как говорит мой муж иногда: "Да! Я дикий мужчина - яйца, табак, перегар и щетина." Это про 1975 Голд.

Didymos Indio Olive Wool unboxing

Didymos Indio Olive Wool is made from 50% organic cotton and 50% wool.  The weight of the wraps is 250 gr/m2. This is a pretty thick wrap. The wool does not feel itchy. The olive weft has cute red, purple and bright green inwoven pieces. You can see them on the macro photo. They are not visible from distance, but if you look carefully, you will see them spread all over the wrap. They are spread unevenly, some areas containing more and others less which makes every wraps look unique.
