Frequently Asked Questions

Ring Sling Shoulder styles

- Pleated: Pleats are sewn to keep the fabric from spreading at the shoulder.

- Gathered: The fabric is sewn across the entire wrap width. The wearer can spread it to his/her liking.

- Floating ring: This is a gathered shoulder that is sewn around 10 inches from the rings. There is then two ply of fabric on the shoulder and the stitching sits behind the shoulder (instead of between the shoulder and the chest).

- Hybrid: My own hybrid version has pleats on each side (usually 6 pleats total). The middle is more or less gathered (I do what is best for the wrap pattern/weight).

What is the difference between weaving types?

-Plain weave: This is the simplest weave. The weft thread passes alternately above and below a warp thread. Common examples : Canvas and bed linens.

-Twill weave: The weft thread passes below a warp yarn, then over several others by shifting each pass. This creates oblique lines on one or both sides of the fabric. Example: Denim.
The BROKEN TWILL, for its part, is a very malleable weaving. It stretches the same way in both diagonals. It is therefore ideal for babywearing, giving unmatched draping capabilities.

-Jacquard : The Jacquard loom is used to create complex patterns, using several colors.

Le travail de Geneviève est épatant! Après le sling, j'ai acheté le Gigotaï... Chaque jour, je remercie Miss Gigotine dans mon coeur pour posséder un porte-bébé aussi confortable! Je l'adore! J'avais lu plusieurs commentaires élogieux à son égard et je ne peux qu'en rajouter! Merci et longue vie à Miss Gigotine! :-)
