8-Bit Obsidian Geode is medium weight at around 260gsm and very soft from the first wash. 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.

**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 fibres and clean out dust that has accumulated during weaving and hemming, so is an essential part of the process**

The price includes postage to the UK.


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.

4 reviews for 8-Bit Obsidian Geode

  1. Amy Acton

    I was so incredibly impressed with 8-bit Obsidian Geode the minute I opened it!

    I’ve been hoping to try a viscose blend and this is everything I hoped it would be, it’s got a lovely bit of bounce while being snuggly and soft and supportive all at the same time without compromising on its strength, my wiggly little 7 month old felt great in it!

    The colours and pattern are something else! Whenever I saw it in pictures before the colours came across as quite muted and dull but they glow! There’s so many hues and points of interest in the weave it is so hard to capture all its glory in pictures and mine surely don’t do it justice, we love it!

      Thank you Amy for taking the time to leave us a lovely detailed review – it is much appreciated <3

    I’ve enjoyed using 8-bit for a variety of carries (FWCC, Robin’s hip, Double Hammock, these are the only carries I regularly use) it is so soft and moldable straight away, without need for breaking in. I find it has more stretch than my 100% cotton starmap and a little more bounce.

  3. Nicole St-Denis

    8-bit is amazing!!! Firespiral’s characteristic softness, with a wonderful bit of stretch. Sturdy enough for my three year old, and I love the pattern.

  4. Annaliese Hart Incháurregui

    We love this wrap! I couldn’t stop thinking about it from the moment I saw it, so when I had the opportunity to purchase one I jumped on it. We weren’t disappointed; it’s thin enough for our humid climate, but still so soft, and cushy. It’s got just the right amount of fluff for us, and the contrast of the blue and black is absolutely gorgeous.
