Fidella is a German giant among the manufacturers of babywearing gear. We already had the opportunity to try the Outer Space Lilac ring sling thanks to the FB group Nosíme děti (i.e. We wear our babies) and the two most classical carriers from their portfolio – Fidella Fusion Toddler 2.0 and Fidella Fly Tai New Size.
Although, as I mentioned in the two previous articles, Fidella is known mainly as a carrier manufacturer, I was looking forward to testing the long wrap very much after my experience with the ring sling. The Fidella wraps are singular in one aspect – they are very wide, measuring about 80 cm in this dimension; i.e. maybe the widest of all the wraps that are normally available on the babywearing market (not speaking of HW or custom wraps, of course). If you have no idea, what a ‘wide wrap’ actually means, let me explain: the usual width of a woven wrap is about 65-70 cm; narrower and really narrow wraps are those with the width of 60 cm or less (the narrowest one I ever held in my hands was only 55 cm wide – in my opinion, it was more of a shawl than a baby wrap, in fact 😀 ). If a wrap is 75 cm wide or more, I nod my head in admiration. 😉 And Fidella with its 80 cm is really something to be admired.
