Mairash by Willow Tree Wovens 

I’m so happy I got a chance to try this beautiful handwoven created by Rebecca, the weaver at Willow Tree Wovens.

Mairash is a Ringspun cotton warp and Sea Island Cotton weft in a crackle inspired weave. The sunset colored grad is absolutely stunning, and it literally glows in photos. This 4.6m handwoven held up for a 45 minute walk while carrying my 25lb toddler with ease. It’s got a decent amount of grip which I felt while tightening robins hip carry. The grip helps hold the wrap in place but not so much that it’s tough to create multipass carries with, and holds a knot well.

There isn’t much stretch or bounce in this wrap, making it great to carry my bouncing toddler in. I wrapped a fwcc, dh, ccc with rings, robins hip and a ruck carry with Mairash. I loved it in Charlie’s Cross Carry (ccc) and experienced no discomfort for our long walk in this carry. I did experience a bit of dig on my shoulders in a Ruck, so I’d probably avoid ruck with this wrap.

Thank you for the pleasure of hosting this wrap Rebecca! You can join the Facebook chatter group here to see more from Willow Tree Wovens.

  1. I love that you still wear your oldest. I tend to go with the SSC for ease but I have a Fly Tie that I want to use but I just can;t seem to get comfortable with my toddler (30lbs) in there. It pulls on the shoulders to no end.

    1. Awe thanks! I don’t wear my oldest for very long but she always likes to have ups in new wraps when they arrive! Hmmm have you tried tying Tibetan or doing other finishes with your fly tai that can load some of the weight onto your chest?

      1. I have but I am not good at it yet. I took my wrap to our local Baby Wearing group and they showed me the Tibetan, maybe I need to practice a LOT more! 🙂

        1. Definitely keep practicing! If you have a woven wrap too I’d suggest carries with chest passes like Double Hammock or Charlies Cross Carry. These will put that weight onto your chest and not as much on your shoulders. Search Tandem Trouble on YouTube for her Meh Dai finishes too. She has many different ways to finish it that will help with your Fly tai too. Good luck! Let me know how you make out and thanks for following and commenting ❤
