indio purple 30% alpaca

release date: 12/06/2011
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.

measurements on a sz 6 post-wash are:

length: 4.86 m
width: 0.67 m
weight: 620 g
-> 127.57 g/m
-> 190.41 g/m2

pfau schwarz, pfau violett 2007

release date: 11/14/2007
limited release in size 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7
price: 95  € for a sz 6

due to their 35th bithday didymos re-released an old friend in a new modernized outfit: pfau. the new pfau wrap came also in two different colours (black/white and violet/white) and had a writing on one of the rails: DIDYMOS 1972-2007 35 jahre limited edition.

there was so much excitement regarding this wrap, but also a lot of…hm…critical voices (tablecloth,…). and you can’t compare this limited edition to the usual le nowadays: pfau was sitting on the shelves like forever. used wraps were sold with a huge loss. and today ? well, try to find an undyed pfau size 6 for less than 100 €…lol.

post-wash measurements on a black/white sz 4:

length: 4.05 m

weight: 500 g

->123.46 g/m

measurements were taken on a v/w pfau sz 6:

length: 5.03 m

weight: 700 g

->139.17 g/m

the wraps were dyed, the wraps were stripped. and sometimes there happened funny things while stripping. normally, both the b/w and the v/w pfau would strip to a neutral creme or ecru/white wrap. but some batches of the used violet yarn couldn’t be stripped to neutral, but remained pink. so you got a pink/white pfau as a strip accident

the 2007 pfau wrap is a medium thick wrap. i can wrap easily with it, it gives me every time the perfect ruck and it very comfortable. it is our go-to wrap that we used from newborn to toddler in all different carries. i can fully understand why so many are looking for a pfau wrap because we simply love our peacocks. so glad that we got themfor retail as i would not pay todays price for it…even if it might be worth it.
