for the love of shorty!

Go, go, go, go, go, go
Go shorty, it’s your birthday
We gonna party like it’s your birthday
We gonna wrap oscha’s on your birthday
And you know we can do a rucksack–it’s your birthday

Or how about this beat?

Shorty you keep playin’ with my mind
You tease me all the time but I had enough
Maybe I should ask your 6’s why
Why you are so afraid to fall in love

You may be thinking: Is this post about Calli’s bad rapping? Ugh, wrong! It’s about shorties! Shorty, what? A shorty! A shorty is a woven wrap that is shorter than a full sized wrap. Sound simple, right? It is! Read on to learn more about shorty love. I promise I won’t sing anymore….;)

Size 1 or Size 2/Rebozo
The shortest woven wrap that is sold is called a size 1 or a rebozo. Rebozos are very common in different cultures–specifically Latino cultures where they are widely used. A size 1 wrap is 2.2 meters or a size 2 is 2.7 meters. This is the shortest shorty and is great because it’s small, compact, and cool since it offers primarily single layer carries. This size is oftentimes used as a sarong or scarf when not being used for babywearing. The shorter the wrap also means that there is less fabric to be drug in dirty parking lots.

Size 4
At one point in time a size 4 was my favorite size wrap–but now they’re all my favorite. A size 4 is 3.7 meters. It’s oftentimes referred to as an “in-between” size. I also find this size great for parking lot wrap jobs, comfort, and still compact enough to fit inside of a diaper bag.
