holy cow…this time didymos released the first silk pfau in a beautiful pink. the pink is the same pink that have already been used in other silk wraps like indio rosé and hibiscus. the price is not really cheap, but the pfau wraps have always been a bit more expensive than other wraps.
first impression when i opened the box: wooooaaaah. this is a really stunning and beautiful wrap. of course you have to like pink, but it also has this wonderful silky shimmer on it. it is a very delicate and thin wrap and you need to give it a first wash before you use it (because the fibers are getting more dense)…but it is really an extraordinary piece of cloth.
measurements were taken on a sz 6 post wash:
length: 4.99 m
weight: 550 g
width: 0.62 m
-> 110.22 g/m
-> 177.77 g/m2
after the first wash the wrap became a bit more dense, but of course it is still a very thin and light wrap. but amazingly i find it very comfortable with my 2.5 yr old toddler. she loves pink, she adores the birds, so this is a wrap that is getting frequent use during nap time for more than 1 hour.
of course i would advise to wrap carefully with thinner wraps, this kind of weave and with heavier children. in my experience you are really getting an amazing comfort when you wrap tight and careful – and yes, i make a difference if i grab into a thick linen pfau strang or a delicate and thin silk wrap. but on the other side i use this wrap everywhere: on the playground, in the woods,…
ok, back to the topic. i don’t think that you have to worry about this wrap. yes, it is freaking expensive and surely more sensitive than a standard stripe cotton wrap. but wrapping wise it is still great for bigger kids….and i just can imagine how awesome it is with younger babies or even newborns. i wouldn’t have expect this wrap to be so comfy, but i’m glad that i still like it.
and did i already mention how supersoft it is ? and how perfect this wrap will look on special festivities like baptism, wedding, parties, christmas,…?
