How long a wrap piece should I send you to have it redone as a ringsling?
This really depends on the desired shoulder style and finished length required, for example though a standard length ring sling I would normally need 2.2m this increases to 2.4m for a floating shoulder style though. I'm more than happy to work measurements out though if your unsure. As a rule a require a size 6 in order to get 2 ring slings from one wrap but it can sometimes be done with a size 5
Length requirements for ring slings
A Short Ring Sling (Approx. 1.8m) requires 2 metres of wrap or up to 2.15m if floating
A Standard Ring Sling (approx. 2m) requires 2.2 metres of wrap or up to 2.35m if floating
A Long Ring Sling (approx. 2.2m) requires 2.4 metres of wrap or up to 2.55m if floating
An Extra Long Ring Sling (approx. 2.4m) requires 2.6 metres of wrap or up to 2.75m if floating
If the taper direction is not compatible to shoulder / Longest rail not at the top, I will require an additional 20-25cm to correct this problem, if the fabric allowance will not allow for this then the longest taper will be at the bottom rail.
Floating shoulders can be done at different lengths on request but as standard the Jean (aka wings) pleat is done at 8" Rose pleat at 10" & all other shoulder styles at 12"
Can you please explain what a floating shoulder is ?
The term floating shoulder merely refers to the length from the rings to the hem (triple sewing line). Anything up to 6" in length from rings to hem is considered a standard shoulder, anything from 8-12" is then classed as a "floating" shoulder. The beauty of the floating shoulder is that it creates a cushier cup over the shoulder area, due to the extra distance from rings to hem. The positioning it naturally creates encourages the sling rings to sit higher up on your shoulder, which in turn makes it easier to achieve a good positioning more consistently.
How long will it take to get my order?
Ring sling conversions & wrap chopping orders are always dispatched within 10 days of my receiving the wrap & ring colour choice etc (turnaround time is normally only 1-5 working days though), I aim to dispatch all smaller custom orders (scarfs , keyrings etc) within 14 days, babywearing bags are normally approx. 4-6 working weeks and leather baga are done via a dairy that can be seen on placing order.
Will I get a shipping notification and tracking number?
I send out shipping notifications but not tracking numbers, as I use a drop & go service at the post office to save time and it can sometimes be more than a fortnight before I collect the tracking details so as a rule the order is with you by then anyway. but I can update you on tracking details etc if there is a possibilty your parcel is delayede or lost, but please don't ask unless you have waited more than 14days for your parcel as I do not have these details to hand
Can you ship outside the EU?
Unfortunatley due to legal restrictions I am unable to send ring sling conversions outside of the European union, but i can do Bags and other custom made items happily.

Can a wrap be sent direct from a third party?

Is the "Wings" Shoulder exclusive to Woven Wings wraps?
No! it can be done on other wrap brands too, but as it's the design I created for the official woven wings releases was called the "Wings Pleat" but it has recently been renamed back to its original name "The Jean Shoulder"
