I have to say that I am a big fan of Girasol - the beautiful variety and softness are hard to beat! So I was thrilled when Girasol announced a new thicker weave hoping that it would add some support for my growing 22 month old. After a month I am so happy with my thicker Northern Lights.
One thing that is not different between the standard and thick wraps is the type of weave - both are woven in the same broken twill pattern - also called cross twill. The thick weave has a double weft and that is the structural difference that gives the wrap more thickness and support. Weft is width or the side to side threads/yarn that are woven in; warp yarn goes the length of the wrap. In a Girasol the stripes are the warp yarn and the weft is all one color - purple in Northern Lights, red in Earthy Rainbow, etc...
In this photo, thick weave is on the left and standard weave is on the right.
About the new thick weave:
Have you tried the thick weave Girasols? I would love to get your thoughts too! Please leave a comment here and share your experiences. How does it compare to other thick wraps you've tried? What is your favorite carry with this wrap?

Hi! I am writing a little review about girasol and wanted to ask if I can use your photograph of the two wraps side by side to show other parents the difference between the normal and the double weft. That would be great, thank you! ♥
