SETI Cascade Starmap features a weft of alternating sets of natural viscose linen, cream cotlin and a fine beige linen. The varying thickness of these wefts give this wrap an amazing texture and provide a wonderfully grippy counterpoint to the smooth, silky feeling Cascade warp. The appearance of this weft combination gave this wrap its name - the lines reminiscent of the lines produced by a scanner that is scanning the universe for extraterrestrial life (The 1997 movie Contact sparked my interest in The SETI Institute and the real-life search for intelligent species elsewhere in the universe!).
This combination of weft fibres also gives SETI its above average weight - it weighs in at around 305 gsm. You may think that this wrap will need a lot of breaking in because of its linen content (57% cotton, 16% viscose, 27% linen) but it doesn't, because in one weft fibre it is spun with super soft viscose, and in another with cotton, so much of the breaking in has been done during the spinning process.
This is a great wrap for bigger babies and toddlers. The weft fibre blend and thickness making it a cushy wrap that is forgiving of sloppier wrap jobs!
**Please note that these wraps are 'loom state' and will require washing before first wear. This first wash will set the weave, fluff up the cotton and clean out dust that has accumulated during weaving and hemming, so is an essential part of the process**
