Woven Wraps - Which do you have and why do you love it?

Soooooo, I am in the market for a wrap. I think I've narrowed all the options down to a woven wrap. Are all the more expensive ones the same? I need one that is cool in the summer as well...Memphis can get H-O-T! Also, if you got one and hated it, please fill me in on that as well.

Re: Woven Wraps - Which do you have and why do you love it?

My best recommendation to start is to find a colorway you like, or a pattern you like, and know you would wear. If you love the way it looks, you are more likely to use it. And unfortunately, the expensive ones are not all the same. Due to differences in weaving technique, pattern, fiber blend, thread size, etc, they all are different thicknesses and wrap quite differently. Most of the standard line Didymos will work well for you, Girasol, Natibaby, Kokadi, C&C, and Ellevill would also all work well. There are more, just drawing a blank right now. I would stick to cotton, or a cotton/linen blend for now, and stay away from silk and wool for a first wrap.
