Didymos Pfau love

10 years ago I bought my first peacock wraps (Didymos 45th anniversary in violet and black) and since thenthey are a huge favorite of mine. I can’t believe that it is already so long ago, but my daughter loves those wraps so much that I’m on a strict selling ban even if she isn’t wrapped anymore….well…she would still love to be on my back, but with already 8 years she is just too heavy 😉

 

Do you have a favorite pfau ? Do you prefer the old or the new pattern ?

finally didymos released the first blue pfau. and this wrap is beyond gorgeous. it is with 50% linen and the first anniversary pfau pattern with a linen content. the colors of the wrap are really hard to capture and the pics don’t do the wrap justice.

i was staring the whole day at the wrap and the blue has some kind of purple undertone. the linen is a turquoise which shimmers like crazy. depending on the light the wrap sometimes seems to be blue-turquoise, sometimes purple-teal. i used it in a quick double hammock today with my daughter and it was very easy to wrap with but still supportive. it is nothing like the old pfau linen wraps, but more like the black hemp pfau which was released last year. can’t wait to geek some more on this wrap, but i’m so happy i did go for it.

india stonegrey with 40% wool

release date: 12/04/2012
limited release in size 5, 6, 7 (?)
price: € 149  for a sz 6

60% cotton, 40% wool

this is already the third official didymos india release, but i will start with reviewing them because they are so especially gorgeous. india is a design from erin arnason from the usa that didymos has been woven (just a quick but important notice – be sure to hear and see much more from her and i bet it will all be amazingly beautiful. check out pavo textiles now and then)DSC_0944

india stonegrey with wool was released somewhen in the night and as far as i know only one retailer got the wraps. india is so soft in feel, on the thinner to medium side and beyond beautiful. i will get measurements soon, but please enjoy the pics together with india in anthracit, gold, natural (with 40% tussah silk) and the heavy-weight india natural 50% hemp:

juno’s pfau II

can i tell you that i’m still in love with this wrap ? i know that i’m biased, but it is so soft and still so supportive, has only some stretch, is easy to wrap with….and now that it is cold outside, i can wear my new scarf all day long.

the first batch is already sold out and today the second one arrived. they still had to be sewn into the ordered lengths, so they are a little late to the party. and if you are curious or interested in the wrap there are still some left at lichtmutter. and new to the site is that you can now pay with paypal as well.

1975 azur 40% wool

release date: 10/21/2012
limited release in size 2,  6, 7
price: 149 € for a sz 6

on a nice sunday late afternoon didymos decided to release 1975 azur with wool. this wrap was already very limited and given its gorgeous looks and the wool it was sold out in a couple of minutes.

when it arrived at my door i was already smitten with its charms. it is so very soft right out of the box. the winter white wool is a nice contrast to the azur blue cotton. after the first wash it is even softer and became more dense because the fibers fluffed up.

measurements were taken post-wash on a size 6:

juno’s pfau, 40% wool

release date: 10/22/2012
limited release in size 2, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, PTT
price: 135 € for a sz 6

today arrived two biiiiig parcel full of the best fluff ever. didymos juno’s pfau was ready for its release at lichtmutter. the wrap is woven with 40% winter white wool and 60% and already very soft straight out of the box.

measurements were taken on a size 4 post-wash:

length: 3.89 m

width: 0.62 m

weight: 660 g (a size 6 weighs +/- 800 g)

-> 169,67 g/m

->  273,65 g/m2

didymos said that the wrap is around 205 g/m2, but as you can see it is quite a bit thicker. but i wouldn’t call it a really thick wrap either, more like a fluffy medium thick with a tendency to thick wrap…and it is still nowhere near audrey in case you are wondering. in my opinion the wrap is for thin wrap lovers (ok, maybe not superthin) as well as for thick wrap lovers.

after the first wash in the tub it is fluffing up and even more gorgeous (yes, i know, i’m biased). you can’t see though it like with other wraps and it isn’t scratchy like the brank new indio olivia with wool either. i used our size 4 yesterday afternoon with my three year old daughter and it was pretty comfortable in a ruck

as this shade of green was never used on cotton before and requested by lichtmutter for the pfau it is difficult to find a comparison in other wraps. please keep in mind that these pics were taken indoors, but here are some comparison pics with indio yew and skanderborg fish with wool.

i would describe the green as a nice deep forest green. the closest comparison can you find in the dark green linen threads on indio cypress with linen. i have to admit that juno’s pfau is really having fifty shades of green depending on the light, flash,…but i tried to make a pic with and without flash together with pfau acqua and i hope you can get the impression:

lichtmutter had a wonderful cooperation with birdie’s room in canada and aleksandra kuznetsova, so that juno’s pfau is also easily available for customers in north america and russia.
