Woven Wrap Sizing

Wrap sizes don’t work in the same way as clothing.

Size numbers refer to the length of the woven wrap- the larger the number, the longer the wrap.

Each size is 50cm (20”) longer than the previous size.

SIZE 1 = 2.2M (7’2”)
SIZE 2 = 2.7M (8’8”)
SIZE 3 = 3.2M (10’ 8”)
SIZE 4 = 3.7M (12’)
SIZE 5 = 4.2M (13’8)
SIZE 6 = 4.7M (15’4”)
SIZE 7 = 5.2M (17’)
SIZE 8 = 5.7M (18’7”)
SIZE 9 = 6.2M (20’3”)

Each length offers different options for tying, so there isn’t a single size that will ‘fit you.

Your body size will determine how big a wrap you need for tying each specific carry. For example, the Front Wrap Cross Carry is a popular starter carry. Some people will be able to use a size 6 for this carry, but others may need a longer (or shorter) wrap depending on their body and baby size.

  1. Katherine Holmes (verified owner)

    So pleased I invested in my bag from Absolute Bobbins using Firespiral’s Arbor Low! It’s just stunning, seemingly bottomless and has lots of features that make it extremely functional. The beautiful synergy weave feels like a really robust choice – I’m expecting it to last many years of hard graft!

  2. Kimberley Anderson (verified owner)

    My AB bag is also made from Arbor Low. It’s fantastic, so roomy, and the tough & beautiful synergy weave cloth is perfect for it. My bag came left shouldered – this is worth considering because the front pocket on the bag is an organisational lifesaver, and good to make sure it is on the front for the correct side!

    I have several Absolute Bobbins bags (in colours to match my coats 🤭) and cannot recommend them enough. I find them to be really spacious and useful with lots of pockets. They’re really thoughtfully designed, both if you buy ready made or have a custom order. Alison kept in touch regularly and sent great photos showing all my options for customising the bag (ring colour, zip colour etc). She also made my bag super fast! I love that you can turn it into a backpack – I used mine this way when hiking if I wasn’t wrapping that day, and as long as you balance your bag contents I find it more comfortable than my actual hiking pack. I really recommend these bags!
