What is 1.5 Weight?
In short, it’s our answer to the double layer. While double layer slings do offer extra support for the toddler and preschooler crowd, they were never the ones that we reached for the most because they were so warm and difficult to adjust. We felt like the ring sling lost two of its best qualities because of that
Enter 1.5 Weight. A sling that is made from a single layer of linen that is 1.5 times heavier than our standard sling, offering added support without losing as much of the breathability of a single layer linen. They are a bit more difficult to adjust than a single, but much easier than a double layer sling. These are recommended for experienced ring sling users wearing heavier children. As of Fall+Winter 2017 these slings come pre-softened.
Care and Use
Beautifully simple and easy to use, True North’s slings are made of top quality linen and come to you soft and ready to use. Our slings will carry your sweet baby from newborn to toddler. Easy to care for: cold water wash on a gentle cycle and lay flat to dry.
At True North Slings we recognize that one size does not fit all. That is why we offer three lengths, all of which are safe as long as you have at least 1 foot of tail while your little one is snuggled in. The standard length is approximately 75” the long is 85" and extra long is 95”. Visit our sizing gallery if you’re unsure of length.
