So anyway, the details. Pavo Gotham Marble size 5 100% cotton. When I picked this wrap up from D it was essentially brand new having been washed and dried and maybe tried on. It was definitely still crispy but even in that state the second I put LD up, it was love: cushy, smooshy, lovely love. In return for getting to play with marble I agreed to take the beast aka break it in. First I threw it in the wash and then I braided it a few times, wore it a few times, washed it again, ran it through the rings a few times, wore it a few times, braided it some more. Every time I wear it I love it more.
Its a fairly textured wrap so its pretty grippy. I find it to be a little difficult to wrap with; it wouldn't be the best choice for a beginner trying to learn how to make passes. However at the same time when you dont get the wrap perfect it is very forgiving as the texture holds the wrap in place well. As I said before it has a lot of cush and pavo cotton is vert supportive. I carried LD in a front carry and he was weightless seriously, and there was no digging or pressure anywhere. (They really should have called it marshmallow) When it comes to carrying SG the wrap is a little on the thicker side but it's just thin enough that I can still make leg passes without throwing his tiny baby legs out of whack, and while its textured and started out a little stiff, it's plenty soft enough against his squishy skin now. I think this wrap really shines in a fwcc for both squishes and toddlers. Visually this wrap is simply gorgeous. The pattern is just barely visible by color, but due to the texture it shows like a favorite cable knit sweater (which is also how it feels.) The color is a perfect creamy natural that will compliment any skin tone. Because it is natty, I was a little worried about getting it dirty, but I've seriously been wearing it daily and have wrapped in parking lots and streets in NY in March and I haven't found a speck of dirt yet. I could just gush about how much I love this wrap all day but I have to get out and wear it a little more because it goes home Friday. Just go out and find one for yourself, I promise you wont be disappointed and if somehow you are, just send it my way; I'll be going through withdrawal.
