Danu: Salley Gardens Spring

Blend; 48% linen/ 52% cotton (280gsm)
Size: 6
General impressions; My first thought was that the colour is stunning, much bluer then I had imagined. I had thought it was a green, but it really is much more petrol blue. The linen is a gorgeous silvery grey with a beautiful sheen that suggests it was wet spun. It is totally different in real life then I could ever have imagined, and it wrapping qualities are stunning. I really enjoyed using this wrap and would love to see what it becomes once broken in.
Feel in hand: it is beautiful and smooth on the pale silvery grey linen side of the wrap, which gives wonderful glide. The teal/blue slide is more texture weave giving it fab grip making it a perfect balance

How broken in was it / how long did it take to break in: as it was pretty early in the testing route, it still needed plenty of breaking in. It is a high linen content, so may take a while, but was still comfy to wear in the meantime.
Wrapping qualities / ease of use / carries it shines in: although the tester was a Long size, I think it would be fab as a shortie. Even with my two year old I found it was a good single layer rucking wrap and didn’t need any reinforcing, and had enough cush on the shoulders to make it comfy without having to sandwich the shoulders.
Wraps similarly to: Lir Irish linen, but with more grip and contrast.
