About the Fabric

The Airbella is made of the same silky fabric used by aerial acrobats and is load-tested up to 1900 lbs. It dries quickly and moms say it feels "light as air."

Wash

When you receive your Airbella fabric, take it home and wash on cold with a non-scented detergent (high spin if possible). Either line dry or dry on LOW/NO heat. Do not dry on medium or high heat, since heat will destroy the integrity of the fabric.

Cut

Turn your hammock in to two baby wraps!
Lay your fabric out on the floor or a bed and locate the stretchy end. Cut from the center of the stretchy side to the tag at the middle. Flip it over and do the same to the opposite side so that you are left with 2 long, thin pieces of fabric. (You can cut the tags off or leave them on.)

Prefer to keep it as a hammock?

Simply purchase two locking carabiners and one daisy chain or Personal Anchor System. (Choose products that have strength ratings of 14kN or higher printed on the items.) Watch this video to learn how to create an aerial hammock with your fabric. If using for this purpose, please watch the washing video on the page.

Wrap

We've devised a streamlined method to save you a minute or two when tying your babywrap. This quicker "punch-punch" method works beautifully with the airbella birthing fabric, but please choose to use whichever wrapping method feels most secure and effective for you. While this video shows you the shortcut for quick wrapping, we highly recommend you also watch this Moby wrap video all the way through to learn the traditional "long-form" method of wrapping because it includes safety information about how to position your baby correctly in the wrap.
