Knitted - The Stretchy Wrap Workshop with Chiara Venturoli

knitted the stretchy wrap workshop


Most of us call them "stretchy wraps," they are pretty easy to use, colorful, most are very affordable, and if you are a Babywearing Consultant you probably deal with them on a daily basis.

But are all stretchy wraps really the same? 

We at CBWS have had endless discussions over the years about which stretchy wrap is the nicest! (One of us historically was team Moby and the other one was team Boba, lol!)

Why are some stretchy wraps $25 and why are others more than $100?  May I tie the stretchy wrap in other ways? What if my baby prefers an off-center position?

Chiara, who is leading this workshop, is a self-described stretchy wrap enthusiast. She has spent years researching the different wraps in detail and created a special workshop just on the stretchy wrap. She has run her own private Babywearing Consultancy practice in her town Ferrara since 2015. She runs a Facebook group for Italy's Babywearing Educators with over 500 members. Chiara has been teaching in her native country of Italy for a few years and she is now, for the first time, presenting her workshop in English!

Curious what she will cover?

  • How is stretchy wrap produced?
  • What's the difference between one-way and two-way stretch?
  • Are stretchy wraps really only good for small babies?
  • Common misconception about stretchy wraps.
  • Multiple tying techniques, so you may best support your client's needs.
  • Using the stretchy wrap prenatally for client support and comfort.

Is this workshop for you?

The workshop is great for Babywearing consultants and anyone interested in learning more about stretchy wraps.
