limited release in size 2, 4, 5, 6, 7 and doll wrap
price: 119 € for a sz 6

this tri-colored indio is the younger brother of indio lavanda. indio purple is made of 70% purple cotton and 30% light pink and dark anthracite baby alpaca wool.

right out of the box is already soft and it will soften up even more after the first wash. the color is really hard to capture on pics and i’m not totally satisfied with these pictures as well. it is a nice, dark and elegant wrap and it really depends on the angle you are looking at it and on the light. the purple is not that prominent like in other purple didymos wraps, but more toned down due to the anthracit alpaca wool.

after cashmere silk ellipsen this new indio is the second tri-fiber wrap from didymos. it was gone in a flash and only available through didymos and a handful of selected distributors. on the first look it is difficult to see the indio pattern. the warp is violet cotton, whereas the weft are alternating threads of white hemp and dark blue linen.

due to the changing color in the weft the indio diamonds now doesn’t look like diamonds, but are more onion shaped. it gives the wrap some kind of oriental touch, which is really very very nice.

wrapping wise this is a medium wrap with a tendency to be thicker, but i think this is more of the feeling at the beginning. it is very dense and rough. but already much softer after the  first wash and will get even better when it is broken in. i can easily wear my toddler for longer periods. this wrap hat go give or bounce and stays put. i don’t need to re-adjust it after some time wearing it, so please didymos, we need some more colourways (without any purple…).
