The legend was true, it is really a fine, thin baby blanket – soft, snuggly, easy to tie and tighten (however, I spent about 10 minutes tying this wonderful carry before I was sure enough that my child would not fall through and dared to go outside 😉 ). The wrap holds tight in one knot – it did not move an inch during an one-hour-long walk, despite it is very soft to touch and is not rough or grippy at all. And as always – I am simply amazed how durable the Vatanai wraps are! This wrap has been travelling around for testing basically from the moment it was released in 2014 and I did not find a single pull; moreover, the label says you can wash the wrap at 60° (I am not sure about tumble drying concerning this particular wrap but generally it is allowed to tumble dry the all-cotton Vatanai wraps by the manufacturer!).
Bottom line, Unalaska is a perfect newborn piece in any way you want it to be – its colour is beautiful, it has great tying properties and it is definitely one of the most easy-care wraps I have ever had in my hand.
My thanks for the opportunity to test this wrap go to the group Nosíme děti (i.e. We carry our babies)!
