I absolutely love my souls slings woven wrap (as a matter of fact my little fella is snoozing in it now on my chest and we are super comfy!) The material is soft and flexible I've only washed it once but it was never stiff! It is durable and is comfortable for myself and my little fella! I also love that it was hand made, and after I read about the soul slings company I was sold! I love that they practice fair trade and their workers are working in nice working conditions! I can't say enough good things about our wrap!!
