Yaro Ring Slings - repreve
Yaro Slings are based in the Netherlands and their baby slings are made in the EU. Their repreve blend ring slings are made from woven wrap fabric, using a Jacquard weave. The fabric is a blend of 60% cotton and 40% repreve. Repreve is a family of synthetic fibres made out of recycled materials - so your baby can be comfortable, safe and sustainble. How cool is that?! Simple, striking designs and rich colours mean that Yaro ring slings are beautiful to look at as well as to use!
Ring slings are quick, and easy to use once you've had a few practices. They're suitable from newborn to toddlers, and are especially handy for toddlers who want to walk, then be up, then down, then up again!
These repreve blend ring slings are made from a medium weight wrap, with a weave density of 230g/m2.
Repreve is a polyester fibre, and the recycled content is certified by an outside body. Repreve yarn used to produce woven wraps is made from 100% used plastic water bottles. This makes repreve a very sustainable product, and the certification process gives assurance that it is recycled.

What are the characteristics of Repreve in woven wraps?
Repreve yarn in woven wraps brings breathability and temperature regulation; it is a perfect fibre for warm weather, keeping both you and your baby cool. It adds a wool-like bounce and cush to the wrap, but without the high maintenance and care that you often find with wool wraps. We love that repreve is water-resistant and stain-resistant - very handy when you're using it to carry your baby with! It dries quickly and cleans easy. And if you're wondering about breaking it in - it comes soft and virtually broken in, after a single wash and dry. What's not to like about these ring slings?
