What's Like a Nikky Wool Wrap? (Need Trim, Under-Clothes Wool Wraps)

I'm trying to find a couple of newborn/small wool wraps. I want trim under clothing, would slightly prefer velcro over snaps and it needs to be a fair price.

I grow long skinny babies, for whatever it's worth. No chunk to be seen anywhere. LOL

I loved the Nikky Wool Wrap and the Firefly Diapers snap wrap I had for DD. What is similar to those these days? Can't seem to find either brand now.

Thanks!!

I think Imse Vimse might be the most similar. HTH!

Loveybums wraps are awesome. SO much better than nikkys IMO.

IMHO, IV Bumpy wool has a shorter rise. I know it's has a similar look to a Nikky wrap, but I'm not sure if it has a similar fit. My son was always pretty chubby and average/short, and I liked the fit of IV on him; he was fitting XL Bumpy wool by about 12 months old though, mainly he needed that much rise!

Thanks, everyone!

If I ordered the Loveybums wraps, should I go with NB/S or M? My son was a little over 9 lbs, so I'm kinda expecting the same this time, I suppose. The NB/S says up to 12 lbs, and the M says 9-22. I'm guessing with a thin 9 lber, though, the NB/S would be a better bet.

Thanks for the lead on the babyworks site, garness. I just read about the sizing on the NB vs. Small Nikky wraps and they don't actually sound like a very good fit. (I only Medium for DD.)

I love firefly snap wraps. I did not like the nikky wool wrap I tried, but loved my imse vimse wrap on my newborn. I also loved my loveybums wrap on my newborn. I've heard good things about babee greens side snap wool wraps as well.
