Possible Downsides Zippered pocket makes it more bulky to wrap tail around the rings.  Sewn shoulder does not offer as much flexibility in positioning.  Some colorways fade with heavy use and washing Slightly higher learning curve compared to Maya Wrap.  Some people find a gathered shoulder restrictive to their arm movement.  One size only means this carrier may not fit very tall or plus-sized people. Double layer of linen is slightly grippier than single layer or cotton, which makes it harder to adjust and slightly more difficult to pull through the rings.  Some people find a gathered shoulder restrictive to their arm movement.  One size only -may not fit all wearers.  Higher price point. Silk is  “stickier” than linen or cotton, which makes it harder to adjust and slightly more difficult to pull through the rings. Some people find a gathered shoulder restrictive to their arm movement.  Silk loses some of its sheen when washed.  Higher price point
