Wrap Carries By Size

Please read our disclaimer before trying these carries.
Do you ever wonder what you can do with your woven wrap? Or do you want to branch out from your usual carries or try a different length wrap? Here is list to help you along. The table tells you what size you need based on your base size. For example, if your base size is an 8, base -2 would be a size 6.
A base size is the smallest size that allows you to do a variety of multi-pass carries, like a double hammock back carry or a front wrap cross carry. A wrap in your base size gives you a lot of flexibility in learning different carries. There is some personal preference involved, also. People who like long tails may prefer a longer base size. Whereas, people who don’t like tails may prefer a shorter base size. Your base size also increases as your child grows.
