Yaro Slings… in Czech, we often lovingly call them “Yaroušci” – from “Jaroslav” (a typical Slavonic first name), or specifically its familiar form Jarouš (Yaroush). These guys are loved very much in many Czech babywearing families, indeed, and it is basically a crime that we have not reviewed one of them yet!
It is a well-known Dutch brand – but, what a surprise, there is no official Yaro website and I was able to dig up only bits and pieces of information about it. The wraps literally gush out of their looms – for example, according to Slingofest.com, Yaro managed to release 143 wraps during 2016 only. The total number of wraps they have released so far is 493, in 74 different patterns, since 2013. I am quite sure that most of experienced wearers own, used to own or at least had the opportunity to try one of their wraps during their babywearing years (or at least they came across a Yaro wrap conversion carrier). Some of the patterns are quite notorious – La Vita, Dandy, Stars, La Fleur, Basket, Ava, Urban Geo, Retro Berry (these are only the ones I can think of right now) and many more; anytime you go to a meeting or event with higher concentration of babywearers, it is almost certain that you will see at least one of these Dutch guys.
