The new "extra wide" Rosmarin Indio from Didymos is all-cotton and it's all-fabulous. But what makes it so great? And how wide is "extra wide"? How does that bonus width affect wrapping? So some of the first extra wide wraps were: November Mist and an Old Standard 1975 Blue Silk Woven Wrap. And now, they've released this pretty Rosmarin wrap which is all-cotton. It's so light and soft: 196 g/m2 and about 77 cm wide. It wraps beautifully and will be great for summer babywearing. I think we are always looking for thin and cushy wraps, and this one definitely fits the bill.

Now to be clear, the Rosmarin isn't crazy cushy, so don't expect anything like Tekhni Repreve wraps. But for a thin wrap at 190 g/m2 you will definitely have some cush on those shoulders, primarily because of the extra width. Does the extra width make wrapping more difficult? Not for me--I like wide wraps, and I found this one easy-peasy to wrap. The extra material makes for a deep seat that's super easy.

What about for newborns? My favorite newborn wraps have been the Diva Milano cottons, and those are typically 75 cm wide. Their extra width gave awesome neck and head support for my little peanuts. And my Lucy was pretty small--only around 5.5 lbs when we took her home--so I would say yes, wide wraps can be great for newborns. After a wash and low tumble dry, this wrap is so crazy-soft and light! It feels like a wrap that's been loved on for years. It has zero hardness; nothing about it requires any kind of breaking in as far as I'm concerned. So if you're looking for something light, thin, soft and with some cush in a wrap for your summer babywearing adventures, put this carrier at the top of your list.

I want to see more all-cotton, thin extra wide Indios. I love this wrap. (I hope you're reading this, Didymos!)
