Sling School sell stretchy wraps in both 4m and 5m lengths. Whilst these lengths may seem overwhelming to a beginner, you will quickly get the hang of using all the cloth!
4m stretchy wraps
These can be used by almost anyone irrespective of size. Most people will have to tie the knot at the back, whereas a more petite carer (ladies size 10 and below) will be able to tie the knot at the front.
You may prefer a knot at the front if you want to be able to see the knot as you tie, or if you don’t like the feel of a knot in your back as you are sitting down.
With a 4m wrap, carers can initially think that the wrap is too short for them. But this is before the stretch has been taken out of the wrap. Carefully following our intstructions will ensure you correctly tighten the wrap, and then the length will be sufficient.
For carers of a smaller physical frame, these wraps are excellent, and a real relief to not have acres of excess cloth.
5m stretchy wraps
These can be used by almost anyone irrespective of size. Everyone will be able to tie the knot at the front (or side if preferred). A more petite carer will potentially have to wrap the cloth around themselves more times before tying off.
With a 5m stretchy wrap, even though the length is there, you still need to tighten effectively for a safe carry.
