The color is more mint than the robin's egg blue it appears in the photo. It's beautiful, comfortable, and easy to use. The linen is much less stiff than I thought it would be.
We use this sling every day and have since little man was about 6 days old. It did need some breaking in which were still working on as he's only 17 days old but it's softened up tremendously with ironing, wearing and washing. I would love to order a double layer as well to have. I definitely fell in love with and recommend soul slings!
