June Newsletter

Welcome to our June Newsletter!

At Firespiral HQ we are enjoying the unseasonably pleasant end of spring and start of summer! Jen has been on holiday abroad for the school half term and I have had a lovely staycation, with paddling pools and barbecues in the garden, picnics by the river Lune and camping in beautiful Silverdale. One of our camping and picnicking staples is our Firespiral blankets. Our double blankets are big enough to seat a family of 5, sturdy enough to sling in the washing machine to rinse out melted chocolate and mud and snuggly enough to cuddle under whilst toasting marshmallows by a campfire. Go on, you know you want one ;)....and keep reading to find out how you can get your hands on a single bed sized Navigator Starmap blanket at half price!!!

At the end of this month, we are off to show our wares at Verwoben 2018 in Berlin! For those of you who are attending, there is a 30% discount code that is available to you to use from now until 19th June and we will bring all orders to the event for you to pick up in person! The discount code is: COLLECT AT VERWOBEN
There are still a few tickets available for the event on Saturday 30th June, and with it being in Berlin there are cheap flights and hotels available too.  Check out the Verwoben 2018 Facebook page for all the info, we'd love to see you there!

Get a Navigator Starmap blanket for just £30!!!

The Navigator blankets were woven as a pre-order, but we were left with over 50 unclaimed blankets due to people dropping out once the order was placed.
Now naturally we’d love to fill a room full of them and have our own dedicated snuggle nest for when winter comes, but realistically we need to sell them instead…
So from now until Jen’s 38th birthday (the 26th June 2018 if you want to put it on your calendar), you can get a Navigator blanket for half price when you spend over £40 on our website, Simply add the blanket to your basket along with your other item/s and the coupon for your discount will appear in your basket. Just click on it to add it.
You can use this code in conjunction with other offers too.

The Navigator blankets are single bed sized (100 x160cm ), and with this offer will cost only £30 each! It will be a long while before we make any more of these super versatile, smaller sized blankets, so now is your chance to own one

European Babywearing Week 2018

We were blown away by the sheer volume of photos and videos that we were tagged in as part of EBW2018, and it has taken us longer than expected to find everything and go through everything. We are nearly there though, so keep your eye on our website for new blog posts that will be coming over the next few days. If you spot yourself in any one of them please drop us an email and we will send you a £5 voucher to be used on our website.

Up and coming releases

8-Bit Obsidian Geode is being released on Monday 12th June at 10 am (BST)! (Check the time where you are here.)
I want to tell you how much I love the WQ of this wrap - my wrappee is 19 kilos, and this medium weight wrap is amazingly soft and supportive with the little bit of bounce that means that there is movement between you both and you don't feel overly constricted. Read more about it here on our wrap database.
In this photo, it was 28 degrees C and very humid and the wrap worked brilliantly in a ruck tied Tibetan.

Our July release is a gold and obsidian Starmap! We will be starting to share information and images soon, plus the special-length pre-order will be available too.

#FISPIMAY winner

I always think that writing this part of the newsletter is going to be a bit of a chore, and every month I surprise myself with how much I actually enjoy going through all of the tagged photos. It is always so difficult to choose (I know I say that every month...).  This month's #Fispimay winner is one that I discovered on Instagram. I love the joy in this photo by Victoria Murray, and the way that it shows that wraps can enable you to hold a shield and a sword (or two!) and carry a baby all at the same time. Victoria please get in touch and we'll send you your prize.

Wrap school - May
This month's topic is about breastfeeding in a wrap and features a guest blog post by Carmen Pagor, a babywearer and lactation consultant.
It is a subject that I regularly cover at my sling library and a skill that both Jen and I mastered over our many years of slinging breastfed babies and toddlers. We hope you enjoy the article.

As a side note, we love guest blogs, so if you have anything relevant that you would like us to share please get in touch.
