Vena Cava - Warrior Woven Wrap (tencel blend)

Tencel? Tencel. TENCEL!

This fabulous new Vena Cava was created for a very special little CHD (congential heart defect) warrior. Collin was born into our local babywearing community to one of the most inspirational families we have met, and this one is for him! Our famous Vena Cava pattern in a brilliant red to represent all of the CHD warriors out there! Want to win a Vena Cava Warrior for only $5 and help out little Collin ? CLICK HERE

What is tencel? 

Tencel or lyocell is a sustainable fabric, regenerated from wood cellulose. It is similar in hand to rayon and bamboo. However, Tencel is one of the most environmentally friendly regenerated fabrics. Tencel fibers are grown sustainably and eliminates the negative environmental impacts of traditional fiber processing, using new sustainable technologies.

But what does it feel like?

This special weave and blend creates an internal poof after washing that is seriously so blankety soft. It has the wrapping qualities of an ace bandage with extreme mold-ablity and holding power to combat even the most daring seat popper. The red tencel fiber creates a soft almost glidey feeling which will slide those wrap passes into place with ease! For those who had the pleasure of petting our lamb's rear soft Crema, Warrior is the same weave, but feels smidge glidier, and lighter-weight in hand.
