About Our Barley Ring Sling

A crisp breeze, a comfy sweater, a woven basket full of shiny apples, the subtle scent of warm spices…Our favorite snapshots of autumn are usually fleeting and limited to one season, so we created Barley! With a rich, nutmeg brown base, and a stunning, eye-catching pattern throughout, Barley’s custom-designed jacquard weave is charming for both neutral and color lovers alike and means thatthis baby carrier has all of the support of oursignature hemp/cotton blend, but with an added feeling of lived-in softness, right out of the box.

Made from two layers of our luxurious and breathable hemp blend fabric -a blend of hemp and cotton fibers sewn together to make our strongest and most supportive ring sling textile- this gorgeous, woven ring sling captures the charm of fall so that you and your little one can enjoy cozy cuddles, year-round. Barley is ideal for babies and toddlers.

Beautiful and so comfortable!

I absolutely love my Night Garden sling! The quality is phenomenal, andI feel so beautiful wearing my baby in this piece. I was worried I chose the wrong material due my first sling with my new baby, but I was able to get the hang of slinging with it quickly. I love that there’s tutorials available on the site as well as the eager to help company itself.

Bonding and comfort

I am thrilled that I discovered and invested in Hope&Plum! I started my ring sling journey when my son was maybe 2 months old, with a different brand. I liked the idea but not the sling I had, so I pondered and finally committed to a H&P. When I say the difference was night and day - holy cow, it was everything I wanted! Perfect combination of softness and support, and I could tell the quality was going to last us a very long time. PPD really hit me hard and slinging my babe helped us bond immensely. My spouse is also in the military, and it has made solo grocery trips and grumpy days infinitely easier. This is also not just a company you’re supporting, it’s a community. And what a beautiful community it is. Thank you Hope&Plum team, we love you!!

It’s comforting for me too

Oh, how I love this sling. This was my first purchase from H&P, and it’s the sling that I reach for the most. We’ve used it at the pumpkin patch, the grocery store, the park… Everywhere I can think of. It’s even provided a cozy spot for my little one’s dolls. As my child continues to grow, there need to be close to me has not diminished. The swing has been a huge help and provides a comfort for us both.

Why babywearing?
Why babywearing?

Because it is the greatest thing of all time...

But really, because it is the key to empowered parenting that benefits both you and your babe.

The benefits of babywearing include....

  • Decreasing the risk of postpartum depression
  • Making travel a little easier (let's be real, nothing makes travel with kids perfect)
  • Supporting cognitive and social development
  • Promoting overall health and wellbeing (including independence through a secure attachment)
  • Letting you live life hands-free
  • Keeping strangers away from your baby

Ring Sling FAQs

Literally, one of our favorite things about ring slings is the ability to wear them in so many different ways. The ring system combined with our soft fabrics allows you to mold the ring sling to your body perfectly. And that means several caregivers can use the same sling carrier without issue!

Here’s the breakdown of our ring sling lengths: Short slings measure 74", the Mid slings 82", our Long slings 90", and our Extra Long slings 100”. Each ring sling is handcrafted, so these lengths are approximate!

For more information, check out our Length Guide.

Yes they are! Size-inclusivity is a core brand value for us and one of the reasons we started our company. You can learn more about how our baby carriers work well for plus-size parents here.

Yes! We find that most people who experience an average recovery from a c-section start using ring slings around 2-4 weeks after the procedure. We recommend keeping your sling high to reduce pressure on the scar and discontinuing use if you feel uncomfortable at all.

Yup! hope&plum ring slings give you the freedom to nurse or bottle-feed discreetly wherever and whenever so you can get on with life while nurturing your babe. Ring slings are your perfect feeding companion, no matter how you go about it.

We have several different fabrics to suit different needs! Our current baby sling fabrics include our hemp blend, linen blend, and our 100% linen. You can learn more about our fabrics and what they are best for on our fabric comparison page here!
