Can you help a novice chose a woven wrap sling?

Am expecting DC2 and I really want a wrap sling so I can strap 'em on and have hands free for everything else. I initially thought I'd go for a stretchy one but as it will be outgrown I think I'll try and be more economical and get a woven one from the start. Something with wool in perhaps that won't be too hot in summer and will be warm enough in winter. I do have an ergo but I just could not get on with it last time, I must have been doing it wrong as the weight was all on my shoulders and crippling me so I gave up.

I'm tall with a big bust and would really appreciate any tips.......

No not a stick by any stretch! I didn't realise they could be so pricey, though they sound lovely and I really want one. Preloved is fine with me. I guess I'd go on £50-100. I need to do a lot more research by the sound of it. Am wondering whether I should go for a cheaper stretchy one to begin with to see how I get on........

Have joined naturalmamas and introduced DP to the possible outlay. I did have a brief look at the storch instructions and thought it looked terribly complicated, but hopefully it won't be beyond me.

i have a storch and it's LOVELY!

would recommend buying second hand because it will be all soft and broken-in already, which is a bonus!
