Although this Nile beauty has a quite dense weave (and therefore does not seem prone to pulls whatsoever, yay!), it is not tough at all. It slides just enough while holding perfectly in the carry and in one knot. It fit in my hand just perfectly, I did not have the feeling of the wrap being ˈtoo muchˈ or ˈtoo littleˈ to hold. It was very pleasant to wear, it felt slightly springy, but no too much, again. However, it is true I did not try it on bare skin – it seems a little bit rougher to touch (not in the ˈsandpaper-roughˈ sense, not at all – just that it is not as smooth as velvet) so someone with sensitive skin could complain about it. As far as the functional properties go, I really have nothing to reproach, just the same old boring praise again. 😉
Regarding its looks, this renaissance Italian did not really capture my heart at first, but I must admit it looks very handsome in the carry. In its category, it is one of the best summer wraps I have tried so far, indeed!
