To make a wrap like a Moby wrap you use jersey knit cotton.

I have a moby. I don't want another stretchy one. I want one a little more versatile like the hundreds of $$ wraps lol! I'm thinking for when dd stops working well in the moby or if I ever get the nerve for a back carry.

Check out the wrap nap fairy on fb. She runs around $65.You need onsaburg or woven linen. They can be pricey because you need like 4-5 yards, and you may not be able to find the pretty colors she offers.

Its linen because its 100% cotton, and it's woven because it is turned into fabric by hand, which is what makes it so strong. Onsaburg is the type f fabric that mamas make their own wraps out of because it is easier to find at fabric stores.

They are measured in sizes and meters. Generally, a 5, 6 or 7 is recommended to allow the wearer to do many different carries. Depending on your build, you choose one of those sizes which range from 4.5-5.2 meters approx. I coul be slightly off on the decimals, but you can look up a size chart online by just googling.
