So, the first time I saw Jacobean Kiss, I honestly thought it was Filigree and I believed it was Filigree for several months until I went to place an order for it and I was told what I was actually trying to order was Jacobean. Well. Apparently I don’t work here.
Our first and only release of Jacobean so far has been Jacobean Charcoal, a warm and snuggly alpaca blend. Jacobean Kiss is a bit different in that it is 100% cotton. It still has the same snuggle factor, but it super puddley and has great drape post-wash. And while I am not afraid of washing my animal fibers anymore (believe me, I was too afraid to wash my wools and silks forever), I am thrilled that all you have do is pop it into the washer and dryer to break it in. No soaking in a tub of warm, soapy water. No gently squeezing the excess water out between bath towels. This is simply wash and wear and what’s not to love about that?
Jacobean Kiss is airy with a loose weave, but is substantial enough for both newborns and toddlers. It has excellent grip, maybe not as much as Gotham, but it still has a fair amount, much like our dobbies. It’s perfect for school pick-ups or those moments when your little insists they are not tired, but are cranky as hell, and fight going up and being wrapped, but conk out immediately once they are wrapped up and their head hits the back of your neck. Damn—I miss feeling that hot, baby breath on the back of my neck. I mean, I miss it now, but I can remember being so annoyed by it after a long wrap nap or maybe I’m just horrible. Motherhood is rough at times, especially if you agonize over moments that happened like six years ago and wonder if you should have done something different.
Kiss is the perfect fall wrap. The lacy quality of Jacobean reminds me of the veins in fall leaves that remain after the body of the leaf has dried and crumbled away. The deep, hot pink color is just enough to give the wrap mystery and body. It’s pink without being too pink; it’s just a hint of color. Enough to be noticed, but not too much to overwhelm. We absolutely love it and hope you do too <3

On a completely unrelated note, I just finished watching Guardians of the Galaxy in its entirety for the first time. What should I watch next? I’ve already watched Guardians of the Galaxy 2. I watched it before watching the original. Yeah. I know. Don’t ask why.
