Related Wraps: Asphodel Cirrus Seafoam & Asphodel Cirrus Tentacular Spectacular and have a very similar blend. Our Geode design has previously been used once before in our Synergy weave wraps Geode Nocturnal and Geode Diurnal.
Wrapping Qualities: So very soft from the first wash. 8-Bit is medium weight, very fluid in hand with some widthways and lots of diagonal stretch. To wrap with it is very mouldable and easy to tighten, making it really simple to get an excellent wrap job. Once tied it has a good amount of bounce and doesn’t sag. Its fluffiness is marshmallowy on the shoulders. A great wrap to use from birth to pre-school (I wrap my 4-year-old in 8-Bit and it works really well for us!).
Care Requirements: No special care requirements, can be machine washed, tumble dried and ironed according to the care instructions.
Notes: 8-Bit refers to the computer graphics that we remember from our childhood, from playing games like Super Mario Land on a Nintendo Game Boy in the late 80’s (showing our age here ;)). The Geode design in these colours makes us think of those platform games of our youth. The 8-Bit weft is a gradation between turquoise and royal blue, the subtle colour change giving the appearance of amazing shimmer.
