I was so happy when I got my Lenny lamb Winter Delight in the mail. It came with an instruction DVD and care booklet which I am sure would really help someone new to ring slings. I purchased the gathered shoulder option, all the stitch lines are nice and even. The wrap itself is very supportive (my daughter is 23lb) and seems to take a lot of abuse without getting threads pulled in the material. The weave is nice and tight but not so tight that it is stiff. I feel like the 82inch measurement is a bit off and it is closer to 88 inches which I love since it gives me more tail to cover my sleeping baby with. I also feel like the pictures do not due it justice, it is pretty in the pictures and stunning in real life. Overall I am extremely happy with this ring sling.
