Today’s mini review is by CMA Babywearing Team member Stacey, who is reviewing the Sakura Bloom Simple Silk Ring sling.
So, I accidentally fell in love with this Sakura Bloom silk ring sling. I should have known, as I loooooove ring slings. The thing is, I was intimidated that it was made of silk! Silk was fussy in my head. Silk was that shirt I wore a long time ago. Silk was not for me. I read on the Carry Me Away website that this silk could be for every day. I read that it was actually “sticky” meaning that the rings grip really well to the fabric without slipping. I still thought this might be too dressy for me in my stretchy mom shirts. My biases were wrong!
Don’t get me wrong, this is a luxurious fabric, but it is also supportive, breathable, comfortable, and casual enough to wear all the time! I like that it is different from my other woven ring slings. The silk really does grip well. I also thought it hugged around my wiggly toddler very well. I think it would be an absolute dream for a newborn. The soft gold color of this one is called Marcona and it’s so pretty! This is definitely a sling you could wear with a dress, but personally, I would wear this beauty anywhere.
