These second-quality Girasol Wraps contain flaws that we consider to be outside the realm of normal. This usually means that they have a very small series of broken threads, but they may also contain other abnormalities that will not effect the safety of your wrap. If there is a series of broken threads that are next to each other, they may occasionally constitute a tiny hole in these wraps. We will only list wraps for sale if we consider the nature/size of the hole or broken threads not to impose a safety concern. With this said, we cannot control what will happen to wrap once stress is placed on it, and we advise that the owner must still monitor the abnormal area intermittently to be sure the hole is not expanding over time.
Should you wish to repair the flaw, broken threads can be fixed by being woven back into the fabric by hand, tied in a knot, or repaired using a graft thread. Here is a tutorial to help guide you. If you are not crafty of course, you may consult a seamstress!

A Note on Handwoven Fabrics
Girasol wraps are handwoven on traditional looms in Guatemala. Due to the highly-specialized hand-weaving technique, it is common for Girasols to have small irregularities in their fabric, such as small weavers knots, occasional skipped threads in the design, or slightly loose pieces of yarn called "pulls." These cosmetic variances make each wrap one-of-a-kind and have no effect on the safety or quality of the carrier. Small tags, which are sewn into the center of the wrap to mark the middle of the fabric for ease of use, may vary in placement from the exact center by approximately 12 inches.
