Shopping online makes it hard to know exactly what you’re getting, which is why you can request samples of our cotton gauze fabric in the colours you’re considering. This means you will get exactly what expect when you do decide to order a wrap or a ring sling.
First of all, I want to thank everyone who entered the search. You really all were fantastic! I had so many short lists, honestly, I would have been delighted with any one of you! But I could only pick 6, and here they are!
It’s an extra special time this week! Not only is it the first ever European Babywearing Week, but it’s also birthday week for Karen from Calin Bleu baby slings, Emma from Cherub Chews, and author of The Gentle Sleep Book and co-founder of Gentle Parenting, Sarah Ockwell-Smith!
We would love to include you in our celebrations and so we’ve got together and decided to do a bundle giveaway!
Not only will one lucky winner get a free Calin Bleu wrap or ring sling of their choice, but they will also get a Cherub Chews nursing necklace, a copy of Sarah’s Gentle Sleep book and a special added bonus!
Cherelle from Pens and Positivity has very generously offered this 10 x 8 original mixed media art collage featuring a Calin Bleu Olive wrap.
Titled “Babywearing brightens the darkest of days” it comes mounted and ready to frame. It’s also titled, dated and hand signed on the reverse.
To enter just like our Facebook pages and comment with which sling you’d like to win!
Please head over to Facebook and share and tag a friend who would love to win too! #EBW17#EBW2017#EBW17Giveaway
Closes midnight BST on Sunday 14th May. The winner will be selected at random and announced on Monday 15th May.
Calin Bleu is looking for 6 Brand Ambassadors to represent us from May to October.
What is a Calin Bleu Brand Ambassador?
As a Calin Bleu Brand Ambassador, you will be babywearing for the coming 6 months and love to get out and about having fun with your baby. You will enjoy taking pictures and sharing your babywearing journey online and on social media.
Why become a Calin Bleu Brand Ambassador?
Having a baby can be a great adventure and we want to see you having fun and going out and about with your baby carried in a Calin Bleu sling. When you’re a Brand Ambassador you’ll be even more motivated to go out to interesting places and have some fun!
You’ll also get really good at positioning, ensuring your baby is safe and comfortable when you carry him or her so that your pictures demonstrate best practice.
Your photographic, written and/or video skills are bound to improve as you share your journey online. Perhaps you’ll enjoy more confidence as you share your experiences and knowledge with others and who knows where it’ll take you!
And of course, you’ll receive a free wrap or ring sling of your choice as well as 50% off for up to 5 more slings! If you want to buy more than that then you can get a 30% discount, valid indefinitely 🙂
We would love you to become an active member of our secret Facebook group where you get to see what’s going on behind the scenes, learn about new products and have a chance to test them out 🙂
Who is a perfect Calin Bleu Brand Ambassador?
We would love to have a good cross-section of babywearers as Ambassadors so it doesn’t matter whether you are experienced or not, have a baby or a toddler, are a mum or dad, live in Texas or London or anywhere in between.

Calin Bleu has always strived to make babywearing comfortable and affordable. So we are particularly delighted to offer our cotton gauze fabric for sale by the meter. Parents who want to make their own wraps or slings can do this very important DIY project safe in the knowledge that the fabric has been safety tested for baby carrying. Whether you’re making a new baby gift for yourself, partner, friend or family member the possibilities are endless!
The fabric is available in both full width – approx 132cm to 138cm at £9 per meter and half width – approx 65cm to 68cm at £5 per meter. Our full selection of 14 colours are available as well as the natural, undyed fabric that you can use for your own dying projects.
So if you’ve ever fancied a wider wrap, shorter or longer wrap, a different tail or colour then get out your scissors and sewing machine and get creative!
You can of course make any number of lovely things with this fabric including babywearing bags, muslin cloths, ring slings, toys etc so do let us know what you make as we’d love to see the results !
We ran a competition on our Facebook page recently where the lucky winner chose a limited edition flag wrap to wear to the Olympics. Well, Jenny Hodgson won and happily shared a couple of photos of her and her gorgeous baby at the Olympic Park. She chose to support Team GB in a Summer Sky gauze wrap with Union Jack.
She says, “I got lots of positive comments about the sling and some people were even taking photos of me! Thanks so much.”
She kindly sent us a couple of pictures to share and had this to say about her experience.
“Hi, I’ve attached a couple of pics from our visit to the Olympic Stadium yesterday to watch the Athletics. My sling got lots of attention with loads of people looking at it as we walked around the Olympic Park – lots of thumbs up and smiles too. It was perfect and Léonie even managed to fall asleep in it with all the roar of the crowd in the stadium! Thanks, Emma”
