Ethos Freakin Pink Cascade breathe blend with microvents is a unique wrapping experience. Slingofest clocks it in at only 215 GSM. I measured and weighed it myself at 231 GSM. It is a cotton weft and polyester warp from my understanding. I didn’t look up the stats before I had it in hand and I’d have put it at the 240-250 gsm mark based on how it feels in hand. It is densely woven but the microvents really do keep it from being a hotbox. The holes make way more difference than I thought they would. The wrap has just a small amount of diagonal stretch but not enough to make it sag- just enough to work with. It handled my 36 lb toddler with ease in a triple layered BWCC. It isn’t the epitome of a squish wrap but it’s not challenging at all with my 2 month old. It’s super sturdy and would make an excellent beater. It’s easy care too. It’s neither grippy nor slippery and gets a bit of texture from the large pattern but not from the fibers themselves. It is just a pretty good all-arounder. I typically prefer wraps with a looser weave and more cush but this wrap doesn’t disappoint or excell on any points. It’s just a solid all around wrap but gets bonus points for breathing as described. It would be a great choice for a beginner for ease of use as well as being budget friendly. I’m particularly surprised that I think it would make a really good shorty. I could easily shepherd’s my toddler in it in a 3. It would also make a nice RS. So, while it’s not to my typical taste in weave & I so don’t do pink, this wrap has a lot of merit. It would be a excellent choice for a lending library wrap too.
