Yaro Basket Black

Yaro Ivy, Basket, and Turtle

Yaro Ivy Black

I wanted to give a brief review ofthe 3 Yaro Slings that I’ve tried. I first ordered Ivy in black (size 6), and recently bought Basket in both black (size 7, for our lending library) and emerald (size 6, and almost turquoise instead of what I consider emerald green), as well as Turtle in black and gold (size 6). All 3 patterns are the most economical Yaros available right now, at 49 euros for a size 6 (came to me about $70, including shipping).

Basket and Ivy are nearly identical in wrapping qualities – they’re wider, airier/lighter, soft and lightly textured after a wash and tumble dry. Easy to wrap with – I’ve even sent Ivy to a brand new wrapper friend, and she’s found it much easier to use than the Didy she had been using from another friend. Passes glide easily, but stay put – it’s neither a grippy or a slippery wrap. As it’s not dense, it’s lovely for our hot and humid summers in Florida. Great support for a toddler, no sagging or digging. The width might be a bit much for a newborn, though.

Turtle I found to be narrower, thicker, more texture, more grip, and more cush. Same support, but it would not be my first suggestion for a new wrapper.

The finishing leaves something to be desired in these wraps, but it’s better than some more expensive woven’s I’ve had. The middle markers are large and a bit rough/unattractive, but those are also easy to remove and replace with a bit of ribbon. Overall, I would recommend these three patterns to someone looking for a budget wrap that could be their only wrap.
