A ring sling is a piece of woven fabric usually about 2m long and 60cm or more wide that has one end sewn securely into two strong rings. They are worn on one shoulder with your child on the other side of your body, or against your front with the loose end of the fabric threaded through the rings in such a way that the tension holds the fabric firmly. This end can be pulled gently to tighten the fabric to ensure a snug and supportive fit with the weight being distributed across your shoulder and back. This ring sling is a linen/cotten blend.
