Review: Nunamoochie Anya

Remember that awesome budget handwoven from Nunamoochie that I reviewed back in February? Today I have the more colorful sister to that wrap!


Nunamoochie Anya is a 100% cotton handwoven wrap that is thin and beautifully lightweight. The colors are remiscent of a “tequila sunrise” and it is the first wrap to feature the color pink for them. It is named Anya in honor of Colleen and Tanni’s  (the owners)  first baby girl.


I am going to compare this wrap to Retro quite a bit because the two are so similar, but so different! Maxine is now 28 pounds and around 33 inches tall so she is only 5 pounds heavier than when Retro came to Chesapeake. Like Retro, this wrap molds so well to our bodies!

The front wrap cross carry (FWCC) is so comfortable! Though thinner than Retro, Anya was comfortable on my shoulders with a toddler. It is incredibly soft. This was my favorite carry with Anya. The next carry I tried was a ruck finished knotless. This wrap is great for a ruck because it is nice and wide.

Another carry I tried was the Half-FWCC because I needed to see a slipknot with this wrap. I think the plus of a thinner wrap is that the slipknot is very manageable. It stayed in place once tightened. The slipknot in in Retro was not as solid as with Anya in my experience.



Anya ROCKED a torso carry so well! Double hammock torso  was so comfortable and thanks to the width of Anya, it felt even more secure. I also did Jasmine’s tandem carry for fun. Owen  and Maxine loved it. Sixty pounds of kid only stayed up for about 15 minutes total because HEAVY but I feel like this would be an awesome wrap for tandem wearing lighter babies.



Just like Retro, Anya is airy, soft, and so easy to wrap with. This wrap will be great for beginners and experienced wrappers alike. It requires next to no breaking in. This wraps true to size and it shines in a base size with toddlers! I bet it would be comfortable in a shorty for smaller babies.

Review: Nunamoochie Retro Handwoven

Nunamoochie is a brand that I have reviewed before, and now they have a new line of handwoven wraps! Retro is the first of (hopefully) many handwoven wraps that they are releasing. This wrap is called retro because it reminded Nunamoochie’s owner of the black and white on old televisions.


Nunamoochie wraps come ready to wear. Retro was so soft right out of the package! It is a thin/medium weight 100% organic cotton wrap. This wrap was great for 31 inches and 23 pounds of toddler but Retro is perfect for new babies as well! It is molds so well to our bodies and that is important for me. At 28 inches wide, I was easily able to get a great seat without being too overwhelmed by width. My first carry was a front wrap cross carry and it was incredibly comfortable on my shoulders.


The next carry that I tried is a new favorite of mine, Charlie’s Cross Carry. This wrap basically wrapped itself. The chest pass was incredibly easy to make and it did not take a lot of adjusting to make it even and it makes an excellent flipped chest pass as well. I did a ruck tied Tibetan finished knotless which is one of my go-to carries. This was my favorite carry with Retro.


This wrap holds knots in place pretty well. A half knot is snug, but a double knot is ideal.  The slipknot I made needed a little adjusting after having Maxine up for a while.


This wrap is airy, incredibly soft, and the passes glide easily in place. There is some diagonal stretch, but nothing too crazy. I would recommend this wrap to anyone. It isn’t hard to break in at all and it basically wraps itself. This wrap is similar to the other Nunamoochie wraps in that it is soft, but it I can’t compare this to another handwoven. This is so much softer and more pleasant than the other few handwoven wraps that I have tried! This wraps true to size and it shines in a base size!


I can’t wait to see what other handwoven wraps Nunamoochie releases!
