REVIEW: Nona Wool Blend

And I was on another budget wrap hunt- and this time I was looking for something different. And again I only had a R1000.00 to get an imported woven wrap that would be suitable for baby wearing my toddler.

The game began… As I was on Facebook, I saw that Mama Bear had new stock arriving from the Netherlands- Nona Wraps.

Everything about the brand was meticulously thought out and planned including its name. Nona was one of the Parcae, the three personifications of destiny in Roman mythology and the Roman goddess of pregnancy. She is the Roman equivalent of the Greek Clotho, who spun the thread of life from her distaff onto her spindle. (It’s the perfect name for a woven wrap!) Nona, whose name means “ninth”, was called upon by pregnant women in their ninth month when the child was due to be born. She, Decima and Morta together controlled the metaphorical thread of life.

It’s a medium weight wrap at 246 gsm and the tight weave ensured that you have the right amount of support to carry your toddler or a heavier baby. I have only used this wrap in winter but I am sure some mommies might find it a bit warm in summer. But I really love the thickness of the wrap as it is so nice and soft. I always use single pass carries since my wrap is a size 3. It is a LOVELY shorty wrap.
It has a nice grip too and is very easy to tie too.
With it being a wool blend wrap it takes some tender love and washing I would recommend to be done by hand. And also flat drying the wool blend wrap.
And I’ve saved the best for last.  This beautiful wrap which looks like a high end brand has a very affordable price! I bought my size 3 for R900.00. It comes in a beautifully packaged linen bag with the Nona logo on it. Perfect to store your wrap in too.

We are very lucky to have a Nona representative in South Africa- Mama Bear.

Overall, this is a great wrap for carrying heavy babies or toddlers and it would be a wonderful workhorse wrap. The brand have elegant designs and an affordable price point most especially for South African moms who are curious about international brands without the large price tag.
