Firstly, I should start this review by saying this is one of my favourite wraps, of those that I have had the pleasure of trying, and if I had £400 spare I’d have snapped this up (I’m not even sure if it’s for sale after it’s testing tour!). Boo stayed with us for a couple of weeks after the Northern Sling Exhibition before moving on to Slingdad Dom for more testing. The overall appearance of the wrap reminds me of the night sky, dark, with twinkles of different colours coming through which catch the light brilliantly, and Little Fellows’ description – ‘A wrap to remind us that even when times are dark, there is always colour and light waiting for us’ – really speaks to me and reminds me of my ongoing journey with antenatal and postnatal depression. Little Fellows unique advancing twill weave gives it the stunning wavy design which travels the length of the wrap, adding another aspect of interest and beauty to the design.


As far as wrapping qualities go, I couldn’t fault it. It is strong and supportive while also being cushiony on the shoulders, and easily carried 21 month old Reu’s weight in both front and back carries. It moulded so naturally around us when we were wrapping that it was like a second skin, and held the carries brilliantly. There’s enough stretch to wrap easily but not so much as to introduce too much give and lead to any sagging. This piece of Boo was just long enough for us to manage a ruck with knotless tibetan finnish, and the texture of the wrap held the knotless finish perfectly, grippy enough, without being difficult to pass through. I even managed a kangaroo carry (previously a nemesis carry as I have struggled with it), with Boo and again, it was a joy to use and held really well, as well as looking stunning. Little Fellows wraps come blunt ended which I’m not very used to (this is only the second blunt ended wrap I’ve used), but I didn’t feel this was in any way a problem and because the wrap is so lovely and floppy, tying off was no problem, even with the full wrap width to pull through. At 61cm it could be considered a rather narrow wrap, but I didn’t notice this when using it, and at no point felt like I was struggling for width. Reu much prefers being hands in when carried and there was plenty of width for the wrap to come up to the nape of his toddler neck.



You can probably tell I’m just a tad in love with this wrap (hint hint to hubby and family for Christmas 😉 ), but it was just such a joy to use. Really beautiful and subtle, and a true piece of woven art. It was fully supportive for my toddler, and would mould beautifully around even the smallest of babies. Massive thank you to Lisa at Little Fellows for letting us play with this beauty, and if you’re in the market for a handwoven wrap, do give Little Fellows a visit as they have recently brought out a more affordable range in addition to their higher end range.

A lovely friend recently sent her beautiful hand woven Little Fellows wrap on holiday and I was lucky enough to host it for a couple of weeks. Let’s Get Fizzical is a pebble weave pastel rainbow and is a silk blend. The pebble weave gives it a good texture, which counteracts any slipping you might anticipate from the high silk content. The colours are really rather gentle and shimmer as the light catches them, but aren’t at all bland. Little Fellows wraps come with raw selvedges (the top and bottom rails aren’t hemmed as there’s no need with the hand weaving process), and blunt hemmed ends, rather than tapered.


I used Let’s Get Fizzical for a few back carries during its stay, including a double hammock tied under bum, and a ruck tied at shoulder with candy cane chest belt. I found the wrap lovely to use, and thanks to the open style of the weave and the handwoven nature, it really moulded itself around 20 month old Reu and I. There was some stretch to the weave which helped it to mould so well, and a little slipping with the silk, but the weave texture helped to hold the wrap in place, and as long as I tightened properly strand by strand this wasn’t a problem at all (and let’s face it, all wraps do a better job if tightened carefully). Despite being quite a thin wrap and with the open weave, the silk added lots of strength and it was plenty strong enough for toddler Reu, even in single layer carries. So it would be a lovely airy wrap to use on a hot day, for a baby or toddler of any age. I even played horsey (I pretend to be a horse with Reu on my back and he tells me when to trot up and down the road), with Reu in a ruck, trotting up and down our road! Despite all the movement from me ‘trotting’ so much, and Reu jumping up and down with excitement, the wrap held well. I hadn’t used a blunt ended wrap before and was curious as to how this would affect tying, but was pleasantly surprised that it didn’t really feel any different to a tapered end, probably thanks to the looser weave structure. The candy cane chest belt was lovely and soft and didn’t dig at all, which can sometimes happen with a thicker or tighter weaved wrap.


Overall, we really enjoyed our time with Let’s Get Fizzical, especially how well it contoured around us, and how comfortable it was to use. It’s a beautiful piece of art as well as a lovely way to carry your child and be close to them.
