Solareveil Ring Sling

Originally uploaded by tangledskeins
I was ecstatic today to receive my long awaited solareveil. Thanks very much to Stacey at Bella Junction! This amazing fabric is super lightweight, and fast drying, making it ideal for the pool, beach, or shower. Top that off with amazing sun protection blocks out 70/80 % of UVA and UVB rays with a single layer, and 90/95% with a double layer. Makes you really wonder why the company doesn't manufacture it anymore. Here's hoping they change their minds! With an ever dwindling supply available, I can't even express how glad I am to finally get my hands on some, LOL. No sooner was the fabric out of the box than I set to making a couple of rings slings. I decided to make two single layer slings, and gift one to my SIL for her to use with my little nephew. I made the tail into a little sun hood, rather than just leaving it loose or tapering the end. I found the fabric very easy to work with, and I am looking forward to testing it out at my nearly-niece's bithday party at the lake next weekend.
