By following our simple instructions*link*, as well as seeking out help should you have any additional questions, your Studio Tekhni Sling will be a safe and comfortable carrier option.
Do ring slings hurt your shoulder?
By utilizing a gathered shoulder, we have ensured that the weight of your child is distributed evenly across your shoulder and back. Additionally, our cotton and linen blend fabric gives you the strength of linen, allowing you to hold a heavy toddler, as well as the comfort and softness of cotton, allowing you to cuddle a newborn close.
Are ring slings good for hot weather?
Ring slings (linen blends particularly) are actually one of the best warm weather carriers on the market. By only covering one shoulder of the wearer and with only one layer of fabric over the wrapee, most users find ring slings to breathe well, even in the warmest of climates.
Will The Sling fit a plus size caregiver?
Yes! Generously cut at over 90 inches, Studio Tekhni's Sling can be worn by a variety of caregivers.
