Mystic Blue cotton gauze wrap
Mystic Blue is a favourite colour for mums and dads as it goes perfectly with jeans and is so easy to bung in the washing machine with the rest of the blues.
The fabric is 100% cotton gauze and it's custom-dyed for Calin Bleu. When you get it and before you use it for the first time you should wash your wrap to let the fibers regain their stretch.
The wrap is the same width throughout its length and when stretched out it looks like a parallelogram. This is so when you tie it it's less bulky and easier to tie.
You'll find it incredibly light to wear and breathable so even when you and your baby are sweating in the heat you'll be comfortable. Because the wrap evenly distributes your baby's weight over your back and shoulders you'll be able to carry him or her comfortably for longer too.
All Calin Bleu wraps are made in the UK and are safety tested and comply with the BS EN 13209-2:2005 which is the baby carrier safety standard for the UK and Europe.
Follow the instructions that come with it to carry your baby or toddler on the front, hip or back from 3.5kg to 15kg or 7lbs to 33lbs. That's about the weight of a newborn to a 2 or 3 year old.
If you need any advice in choosing or using your sling, just get in touch we'll be happy to help.

Great for summer
Posted by Unknown on 6th Jun 2014
Nice lightweight cool wrap ideal for warmer weather. Easy to wrap with, size was ideal for me to do a front wrap cross carry with a 6 month old baby, tying off at the front.
Great fast delivery

Dear Calin Bleu Team,
I just wanted to say thank you for the amazing speed with which you got my Calin Bleu wraparound out to me. I hadn't even ordered it 24 hours ago! If only more companies were as efficient as you. I look forward to experimenting with the wraparound over the next few weeks and then using it for real very soon.
Fits newborn to small child

Although price was an issue we bought the long Cloud when our son was 5 months old as we knew the fleece wrap would be too warm for use in the summer. What we found is the cotton is cool, lightweight, and can be tightened well to provide a snug and comfortable fit! It's also light weight, quick to dry, fits a newborn/prem throughout to large toddler/small child and looks as good now as the day we bought it! The ties seem excessively long on this though, even when using on a 3.5 year old!

The main thing we found after buying our wrap was freedom, our baby was 9 weeks old and we were on holiday in disney (not our choice!). The best thing about it for me is it's lightweight. There are plenty of other benefits like both of us use it, it keeps baby close, it perplexs people! I have 4 other wraps but this is our favourite.
Good for a new baby when looking after a toddler too

I do think they are a bit expensive for what is essentially a strip of material. However, I did find it was easy to tie and it's great having my hands free. I also like the fact that my baby keeps me cosy and he sleeps easily. I would recommend them as it is easier for carrying your baby, especially if you have another toddler who requires looking after.
My son is 10 weeks old but I found using "The Hammock" method of tying really difficult. It was not comfortable for me to wear and his feet were squashed at the side. I didn't feel he was secure in it and there was a loose flap of material, that covered his face, that I didn't know quite what to do with. Since he's now holding his head better, I use "The Wrap Cross Carry" method, which is much better. I find it much easier to tie, it's more comfortable to wear and he is secure everytime I use it.
Best for toddlers not infants
Posted by Louise Cooper on 21st Aug 2010
I thought the wrapping instructions were complicated and not convenient for getting wrapped in a parking lot as very long so drags on dirty ground. But what I liked is it did not make my back sore. It's light weight and I like the versatility in wrap style.
I would not recommend for first time mothers, too complicated to understand how to carry an infant safely. I recommend it for mothers with babies older than 6 months who prefer carrying to prams when travelling or outdoors experiences. Could you design a wrap with a clip or slide instead of making knots?
Not difficult to tie
Posted by Melissa-Jo Hall on 21st Aug 2010
I thought that I would have difficulty tying it but I found that it was not difficult at all. It's quick to put on and folds down small when out of use. I can keep baby close and have both arms free.
I was using a sling for my children, one now 7, the other now 4 and this put all the strain on one shoulder. I bought the wrap for my now 4 year old and it was comfortable and completely supportive. My third child is due any day now and I'm looking forward to carrying her in my Calin Bleu wrap.
Comfort for baby and parent. Great colours

I found it vital to have someone who knew how to use a wrap show me how to use it. Much better than written instructions.
I found it very comfortable but would have prefered it to be slightly longer. I am a UK size 14 and would have liked the ends of the wrap to be a bit "swishy-er" when tied and not so "stubby". Beautiful colour. Was great for using in summer and on holiday in hot coutries.
Never managed to master back carries with a wrap. My two children are too big for front carries now and I sometimes use a mei tei for back carries but would love to be able to use the wrap too.

I didn't know anyone who used a wrap sling before I bought my Cloud M but I discovered I much prefered wrap slings to the baby bjorn carrier I had for my first child. It was sooooo comfortable, I could carry my son for hours. It allowed me to get on with jobs with my (clingy) son attached, helped him sleep and when he had reflux. Good instructions, really helped bonding process. I love my wrap sling but have stopped using it now that my son is 17m and too big for the front carry. I can't get to grips with wrapping him on my own without my husband being there to help. More tutorials about side and back wrapping on the website would be great.
