The difference between a stretchy sling and a woven wrap.
The Tricot Slen is an elastic wrap, or a knitted sling, this does not mean that the sling is made with two knitting needles and a ball of wool, but with large mechanized special knitting machines that can make very fine stitches. The Tricot Slen is made entirely from 100% organic cotton. This process is like the biggest difference between a stretchable and a woven wrap. Knitting and weaving are thus two completely different methods and thus make different end products as a result. The knitted sling has stretch and woven wrap does not.
There are many brands stretchable / knitted baby slings around, some with extreme stretch and these will not quickly be perceived as pleasant, some others have a perfect amount of stretch, the Tricot Slen from Babylonia naturally falls under the latter. The amount of stretch in the Tricot Slen sling keeps the knot made easy and makes sure your child is not sagging and makes wearing safe and a comforting feel.
