The yarns used for the Didymos regular product range are manufactured exclusively for DIDYMOS. In addition, they source suitable yarns which in limited quantities that meet their high quality standards. Once the wraps and slings made out of the limited yarns are sold out, most of the limited editions will not be released again. These yarns include fibres such as linen, hemp, silk, wool, cashmere and other luxury fibres.
Didymos baby carriers have always been woven with yarns free of chemicals and heavy metals; safe enough for a baby to chew on. In order to maintain a rigorous and continuous quality control, no part of the production is outsourced to low-wage countries. The fibers used by Didymos are all organically sourced from countries Didymos feels can be trusted to provide ethical working conditions for their labourers.
