We think silk is the perfect fabric for a ring sling: it is both beautiful and incredibly comfortable to wear.  We love silk for its beauty, of course, but we reach for our silk slings again and again because of silk's strength and ability to mold perfectly to the body, as though the sling was made just for you and your baby.

Silk is not just for dress up – silk slings look just as great with jeans and a tshirt as with your evening wear!  Plus, silk is machine-washable.  Please note that washing does change the look and feel of the sling (see product description for details).

How to care for your Sakura Bloom silk sling

Your silk sling is machine washable, but please note that washing it will change the texture of the sling.  Many people actually prefer silk after washing, but it definitely looks and feels different, giving a more matte or raw look to a silk sling.  To preserve the original sheen of a silk sling, we recommend a combination of spot cleaning and environmentally-friendly dry cleaning.

That being said, adding a bit of vinegar to your wash can help keep your silk sling shiny!

Hand Wash

  1. Unthread your sling.
  2. Fill a basin with cold water and add a bit of  liquid detergent. You want something free of optical brighteners and enzymes, Sakura Bloom recommends Soak Scentless.
  3. Gently swish your sling around for 1 minute. It may lose some dye, which is normal.
  4. Remove the sling and empty out the water.
  5. Fill the basin again with cool water, this time adding 1/4 c vinegar.
  6. Add sling – gently swish around for 1 minute.
  7. Remove sling from the water and gently roll into a towel to remove excess water. 
  8. Hang the sling to dry inside, and out of any direct sunlight. Silk can shrink a bit in the wash, pull on the sling gently to regain some length.
  9. While the sling is still slightly damp (dry is ok, too), steam iron on the hottest setting while gently pulling the sling back into shape.

Machine Wash

  1. Unthread your sling. 
  2. Wash it in your machine (alone, cold water, gentle cycle) with a little liquid detergent. Look for something free of optical brighteners and enzymes, Sakura Bloom recommends love Soak Scentless.
  3. Add 1/4 c. vinegar in before the last rinse cycle.
  4. Hang the sling to dry inside and out of direct sunlight. Silk can shrink a bit in the wash, pull on the sling gently to regain some length. Do not machine dry.
  5. While the sling is still slightly damp (dry is ok, too), steam iron on the hottest setting while gently stretching the sling back into shape.

*Keep in mind that Sakura Bloom slings are lovingly crafted from all-natural textiles, so just like a pair of black jeans or a colored t-shirt, each time you wash your sling, it may lose a bit of color.

    I purchased this sling from Carry Me Away and I love it! The color and sheen are beautiful, and it is very strong and keeps its shape very well. The service from this company was great!

    I have a bunch of slings, but my silk Sakura Bloom is by far my favorite. It’s so supportive and yet so light. Plus, it’s gorgeous and I always feel pretty in it! Get this sling, you will love it.

    I bought this ring sling on the recommendation of a friend. It is everything I hoped for. I have tried a lot of baby carrying options with my first son (the moby, ergo, snugli, and other ring slings) and gave up, with the exception of the ergo which worked great from 6 months to 18 months in a front carry. But this one has proved to be the BEST for carrying my newborn and worked great when I tested it with my 14 month old niece. First, the color is beautiful (ink). Second, the silk material is sturdy, secure, and stays in place in the rings. Finally, the variety of ways to hold the baby in the sling allows for comfortable and discreet on-the-go nursing. And P.S., it fits easily in my diaper bag.

    This sling is the best I have found and I highly recommend it.

    It is hands down the best carrier i have used. Very easy to put on and off and gives me the freedom to use both hands!!! 100% worth the investment dont even bother looking at other stuff in my honest opinion. The fabric is amazing and comfortable for both wearer and baby.

    I adore my new silk Cayman. I am a huge advocate of ring slings,so easy. Sakura Bloom has the best quality. The customer service here is also exceptional. I used the layaway program and couldn’t be happier. They are very accommodating and I will definitely order again.

    I’m in love with my new Deep Sea Sakura Bloom. I am a veteran to Sakura Blooms. This is my 5th sling from them. This was the softest and most pliable out of the box. It was nice not having to break it in and just being able to go. I am super happy with my purchase and my daughter is too! Plus the color is incredible!

    I absolutely adore this baby sling, and I cannot wait to try carrying my little guy in it. I carried my first son from birth until he could walk in a baby bjorn carrier. While I liked that carrier for the later months, I really wanted something simpler with more support for the newborn and early months. I looked at a bunch of different carriers, but most were made of stretchy cotton, which offered little support. I saw a number of great reviews on this specific carrier, and when I saw that it came in a beautiful silk fabric, I was sold. This wrap is even more beautiful in person. The ink color is a perfect navy color. Could not be happier with this wrap!

    Simple to use. Beautiful fabric. I got the ink and it’s a lovely colour that goes well with most outfits. Ring sling is strong and comfortable and my 4 month old enjoys being carried in it. Glad I splurged and got the silk. Very fast delivery and beautifully presented packaging.

    I ordered the deep sea ring sling and absolutely love it. The shipping was extremely quick. (Arrived within three days with the free shipping) this is my first sakura bloom sling and I couldn’t be happier. If I decide to buy another I’ll order from this site again as well.

    Not my first Sakura Bloom sling, but my first from this company. I bought the Ink color and really wanted to make sure it was blue (sometimes colors vary). Email response was very prompt and I was able to request the bluest one of the lot. Not to mention how quick I received my product. Will definitely do business with this company again. Kudos to great customer service!! 🙂

    I ordered the sling in pink sand and it’s beautiful!! My (3 week old) son falls asleep in it as soon as I put him in. I have numerous carriers, but none as comfortable (or beautiful) as this one. Super fast shipping and the product was wrapped with tissue paper a very sweet touch. I’ll be recommending this website to every mama with little ones 🙂

    My first silk Sakura Bloom sling, and first purchase from Carry Me Away, and I couldn’t be happier with my purchase! I bought the Deep Sea color and wanted to make sure it was more green than blue…Laurel responded to my emails right away and even went out of her way to send pictures! Fantastic customer service, super speedy shipping, and a gorgeous sling – I can’t ask for more. 🙂 Carry Me Away has made another loyal customer!

    I LOVE my sakura bloom silk ring sling! Carry me away had the best price I found on them because they do not charge any extra fees plus you can use promo codes to get additional products for free with your order. They also have amazing customer service, I changed my mind twice on what color sling I wanted to order and they responded to my emails promptly and accommodated the changes I requested with no issues. If I ever want to buy another baby carrier I would buy it from this site and I have recommended it to all my mom friends!

    Not my first Sakura Bloom sling but it was my first purchase from Carry Me Away. I chose Carry Me Away initially because of the free shipping but then realized they ship within a day and have promo codes for extra items. I plan on making another purchase from them this weekend and can’t wait!

    This is my 3rd Sakura Bloom, and while I always thought I was a linen girl, I am IN LOVE with pink sand! It isn’t rough or beastly, it’s soft right out of the box and the most gorgeous nude pink for summer! This was my first order from Carry Me Away, and honestly, I will NEVER order from anyone else. The customer service was hands down 5 stars, my sling came beautifully wrapped with a free carrying bag, and arrived in only 3 days. Best ordering experience ever, I will recommend Carry Me Away to all my babywearing friends! Thank you so much!

    Sakura Blooms are my absolute FAVORITE ring sling, they’re great from birth to toddlerhood. Carry Me Away is my “go-to” place to order from, their customer service is amazing. I always recommend these slings and this store to all of my friends.

    I love Sakura Blooms and it’s great to have a local option for purchasing them. The silk SB’s are SO supportive I comfortably carried my 4 year old in it the other day!

    I was a little hesitant to get a silk sling because of the additional care the fabric requires vs. linen or cotton. But I have to say I love the support and grippiness more than the cotton and linen slings I’ve used. The silk is still easy to adjust, and I find that the weight distributes more evenly with less fussing . My daughter also ALWAYS chooses the silk sling when I ask her which she’d like to go up in! I am a bit afraid of getting it dirty, but I’m sure that fear will dissipate with time, and there’s an awesome tutorial on washing silk with vinegar in the rinse to help keep its shine. I’d say if you’re looking for a sling for a heavier baby or toddler or one to up your outfit game, silk is it.

    After doing lots of research I decided to order the sakura bloom silk ring sling and was thrilled when i found carry me away not only sold in the exact color i wanted but also offered the opportunity to return with full refund if i happened to not like it. When buying such an expensive carrier i wanted to be sure. I received my order so much more quickly than expected and it was wrapped so beautifully. I love the ease of this sling (I can actually put it on myself without the help of additional hands) and I don’t feel like i have so much extra bulk on. All in all I would definitely recommend carry me away to any mamas looking to buy a carrier. So many options, easy site to navigate, lots of resources available and so efficient! Would totally order again myself!
