Our cotton, linen and bamboo only needs to be washed at 30 degrees. We don’t recommend bleach as it can damage fabric.
Do not use fabric softener with your slings - it reduces the life of the fabric and makes it lose grip.
It is recommended to put ring slings inside a pillow cover when washing so the rings don’t get damaged.
We do not recommend tumble drying in our washing instructions as it decreases the life of any fabric. Having said that, running it on a low temperature can help soften and ‘break in’ your sling.
It is a good idea to steam iron your cotton and linen slings after washing. Not only does it make them pretty and help to soften the fabric but it avoids the fabric creasing along the same lines repeatedly, which can lead to wear.
Try not to let linen dry completely if you are going to iron – linen is much easier to iron whilst damp. If you dry linen completely in the tumble dryer it may appear to have drastically shrunk. The fibres have just been compacted together and will return to normal after a quick press with an iron (and a spray of water). Using your sling will also stretch it back out again.
We recommend hand washing these fabrics. Run some lukewarm water into a bath or sink, add some suitable wool/silk/cashmere soap and place your sling in the water. Let it sit for a while, gently agitating the wrap, then rinse. Gently squeeze off any excess water (without wringing), roll in towels and step on it to dry further. For silk wraps, without wool in them, you can use the silk or hand wash setting on your washing machine if it has one, otherwise, hand wash. Wool and cashmere should be laid flat to dry. You should avoid drying silk in direct sunlight. They can be ironed on a very cool setting
Ring slings are around 190 - 200cm long x 70cm wide
About Ring Slings
Ring slings are elegant and are often used for special occasions such as Christenings and weddings. They are quick to use, especially handy for short trips from the car to shop, or for a child that wants up and down a lot. They are also light and pack up small.
We offer two shoulder styles - Our original Highland Pleat Shoulder mimics the pleat work from the Kingussie kilt, which is one of the oldest styles and is unique in utilising both box and knife pleats. Symmetrical pleats move away from the centre of the sling to ensure an even distribution of the baby's weight whilst moulding easily around the wearer's shoulder, for an elegant look.
The Gathered Ring Sling Shoulder has been widely used by babywearers for quite some time now and is a tried and tested favourite. This shoulder style is relatively unstructured as the fabric is gathered directly through the rings with no folds, this allows you to spread and move the fabric very easily and is ideal for those who like to cap the fabric over their shoulder.
The choice of shoulder style is personal preference, although some people feel that those with narrower shoulders prefer the pleated style.
Oscha ring slings can also be worn on either shoulder. We do have some directional patterns, which means they will hang upside down if worn on the opposite side. In this case, select left or right hand according to which side you want the rings to sit on.
We include an instruction brochure with each sling, please take time to study this and practice as ring slings are extremely comfy and easy to use but it can take a little time and some adjustment to hit the sweet spot!
