Each ring sling listed is made of a different material and weight with two options of ‘shoulder’ – ‘Gathered’ or ‘Highland Pleat’.
All ring slings can be worn on either shoulder, however some prints have a ‘right way up’ so the carriers are labelled as ‘left’ or ‘right’ shoulder. This indicates that the pattern will be as shown in the photo, when worn on that shoulder. If there is no ‘right way up’ they will not say ‘left’ or ‘right’.
The ring sling widths also vary slightly.

If a ring sling is listed as ‘Grade 2’ this means it is a second, with some minor imperfections in the weave. This does not affect the usability or structural integrity of the ring sling but does make it a bit cheaper.
