Our Signature Series began with a seamstress who loves both drawing and artistry in sewing. What begin as mental sketches sometimes, depending largely on time available =), make their way to become actuality in our Signature Series special collection =)! This special sling is made from our beautiful Opal silk, along with Plumberry silk, both of them dupionis. The Plumberry also forms a contrast band along both sides of the opal. On the tail of the sling is where the real artistry is seen. A beautiful flower, complete with stamens drawn by machine and thread, as well as a bud about to open trail gracefully across the tail of the sling. Scrolling in light gray and leaf detailing in olive add extra detail. The flower, bud, and leaves are all created from silk dupioni, double layer, and then detailed if needed, and stitched in place. We hope you love this very special sling as much as I enjoyed seeing it come together!

This sling is also extra wide at about 35 inches, unusual for a silk sling. The double layer will provide phenomenal support as well. Due to its double layer feature and the extra thickness, I would not recommend this Artist Series sling for a newbie to babywearing as the quantity of silk to be threaded through the rings when adjusting will require a more practiced hand. I found that once the sling was adjusted to fit me, there was little I had to do when I placed Sophia in it.

WHY SILK?
**Strong fiber
**Super lightweight
**Breathable for year-round use
**Not difficult to care for. Dupioni can be washed delicate gentle, but I would suggest that this special sling be handwashed on cold =).

WHY A RING SLING?
After having extensive practice babywearing with a newborn as well as toddler ages, I have come to the conclusion that the ring sling is the most versatile carrier.
**Switchable (between just about any caregiver)
**Adjustable (starting to be uncomfortable - just adjust it)
**Spreads weight GREAT
**Versatile (don't want it to be the main focus of your outfit? Just tie the tail around the rings and you have the look of a pouch with all the advantages of a ring sling).

WHY FROM LI'L PEEPER KEEPERS?
**We carefully choose our fabrics. Have you noticed that we sell almost exclusively linen, silk, and tencel? It's for a reason. We want natural, STRONG fibers that will stand up to the test of safely carrying such precious cargo.
**Our style is thought through and proven.
**No sewing is parceled out to others. I sew each article here.
**I'm a babywearing Mama!
**We've been selling these for a while =).
**An instructional DVD comes with your sling, so you can buy for yourself or for a gift with confidence!

The rings we use are non-welded brushed aluminum rings from SlingRings.com. These rings have been manufactured using strict guidelines and testing procedures and are CPSIA compliant. The sling is re-inforced and reinforced with stitching by the rings - again decorative stitching is used to create a sling that is both functional and beautiful!

A DVD will show you step-by-step how to position your baby in several different basic carry holds. This sling is ideal for newborn through 35 pounds. Ring Slings are not size-sensitive like pouch slings and these come with an instrucitonal DVD, adding to their practicality as a gift.

If you have any other questions, please feel free to convo me. I'll be glad to help. Check out our shop for about 70 other choices: www.lilpeeperkeepers.etsy.com.


ABOUT LI'L PEEPER KEEPER CARRIERS: Great care has been taken to make sure that these carriers are sewn with quality and safety in mind. Pouches are sewn with a reinforced seam, known as a French seam, to shape the carrier. Ring sling fabrics are chosen with care as to style and strength, and each sling is carefully reinforced at the rings. The rings used are from SlingRings.com (nonwelded aluminum) or from Nestmom.com. Both companies have rigid test guidelines in place to ensure safety and quality.

Babywearing is both a joy and a responsibility. Although Babywearing is simple, it will take practice and precautions, just like anything else. Don’t expect you or your baby to “sling like a pro” the very first time. Keep at it – it’s worth the effort!
Some precautions to take while wearing your baby:
1. Always check the carrier first for signs of wear or any rips. Don’t use if damaged.
2. Practice holds with a stuffed animal before trying them on your baby.
3. Use common sense while wearing – i.e. do not bend from waist. Don’t use around the water, while cooking, showering, or other potentially hazardous activities.
4. Always make sure your baby has sufficient airflow.
5. Remove baby from sling before placing in bed.
6. While making adjustments, always make sure the baby’s weight is supported.
7. If a child is fighting against going into the sling, wait until he is calm and try again.
8. If a child is fussing after being placed in the sling, talk to him, pat back, move around, just as you would normally do to soothe a child.
9. Follow safety guidelines: you use at your own risk, accepting the responsibility for the safety of your child. of your child.
