CPP Baby Wrap Softness & Stretch Scales

There’s so much to love about our collection of baby wraps here at CPP! Our exclusive assortment offers a wide variety of colors, textures, and weights. To help you understand the important differences between each category, we’ve developed a softness scale and stretch scale. Soon all of our wrap listings at will feature both a softness and stretch ranking. Here’s a look at all the details of our Softness and Stretch Scales:


1 = I’d wouldn’t use that to wash my floors!

2 = Eh.. it’s not the best feeling out there but can be used for short periods of time

3 = Ah.. this feels alright

4 = Oh.. this is cozy and feels good

5 = Incredible softness and comfort! Give me a place to sleep immediately..zZ..zzZ..ZZZ



1 = No stretch at all

2 = The fabric gives a little bit but doesn’t look great if you like the form fitting look

3 = It has enough stretch to make swaddling easier

4 = Oh.. this has great movement and I can easily wrap a baby with this

5 = Holy smokes, this has some serious stretch


For an in-depth look into how each of our wraps rank and compare to one another, ceck out this article:

Swaddling Wrap Comparison

I’ve been asked several times this week on how our newborn baby wraps differ from one style to another, so here is an explanation on the characteristics of each fabric. ANDDD… thank you for pushing me to do this overdue baby wrap comparison post!

A couple things to know before we begin.. all of our baby wraps are exclusive to Custom Photo Props with exception of the Nubble wraps. We choose the fibers, dyes, elasticity content, and size of each wrap and bring it to life.  We love to curate new products for newborn photographers that surpass what’s currently on the market. Since we love having our own exclusive collection of superior products, we are discontinuing the Nubble wrap line. It’s not that they aren’t good in their own way, we just don’t like being like everyone else!


Custom Photo Props STRETCH SCALE

1 = No stretch at all

2 = The fabric has some movement (maybe 10% shift)

3 = It has enough stretch to swaddle a baby without issue

4 = Oh.. this has even more flexibility and I can easily wrap a baby with this

5 = Holy smokes, this has some serious stretch!


Custom Photo Props  SOFTNESS RANKING

1 = I’d wouldn’t use that to wash my floors!

2 = Eh.. it’s not the best feeling out there but can be used for short periods of time

3 = Ah.. this feels alright

4 = Oh.. this is cozy and feels good

5 = Incredible softness and comfort! Give me a place to sleep immediately..zZ..zzZ..ZZZ

We are so excited to announce that starting soon, we will begin offering seasonal collections!

All of your favorite products, including our vegan furs, wraps, apparel & headbands, have been curated into beautiful new collections that will deliver every few months. This means that we’ve taken the hard work out of mixing and matching props that will coordinate for your studio sessions! All of the products in the collection have corresponding pieces that complement one another beautifully. Spring just happens to be our favorite season – how can you not love all those florals…all that fresh color- so we thought it was the perfect time to debut our first collection!

We think newborns + pastels = the epitome of lovely, so you can be sure that we’ve included as many pastel perfection hues as possible! Our palette of lavender, buttercup, mint, peach, blush & cherry blossom is universally flattering and will definitely freshen up your next photo shoot! Each color story features a fur, some wraps, headbands, and select apparel items that come together beautifully. You can use each one on its own, mix and match hues, or pair them with the collection’s creamy, dreamy, complimentary neutrals.


 Some fresh new items we’re excited to introduce are our beautiful new flower crowns –  these have been handcrafted with silk flowers, freshwater pearls, textured yarns and other natural elements. With so many special details adorning these, we know you’ll love them just as much as we do (especially since flower crowns are really trending at the moment)! Our new spring blossom mohair bonnet has been hand-knit and adorned with a beautifully handcrafted silk flower. This special, delicate piece is unique to CPP and has been custom-designed for spring! And we are just crazy about our fuzzy hand-knit bunny hat and soft-as-ever speckled rabbit faux fur – both will be perfect for your Easter photo shoot!

Washable Vegan furs

Here at Custom Photo Props, there are so many reasons we love our faux furs and faux flokati! Our Vegan furs are composed exclusively of man-made fibers that ensure a baby soft feeling with dramatic fur texture. They’re hypoallergenic and softer than just about any real fur you can get! We’ve been told countless times that their luxurious softness helps babies fall right asleep. In fact, 9 out of 10 newborn photographers “Love Love Love” our furs and purport that they really help them with their photography!

Our exclusive color palette offers a beautiful range of colors that will compliment any newborn shoot, and since they’re custom designed, you can only get them here! And because we value quality and durability, we made sure that our entire line is completely washable! Awesome, right? Simply machine wash with cold water on the gentle cycle, shake, and hang dry….they’ll come out like new every time! This is probably our customer’s favorite aspect of our faux furs. We’ve received so much wonderful feedback on the ease of washing them and how they retain their quality. One customer claims that her fur “has seen countless washings over 3 years and is still in full use!”. Another told us she’s washed hers between 30-40 times and it still looks great. We even asked fans on Facebook to share some photos of furs that have seen lots of use and washings. Our friend Khristy posted “These have been washed more times than I can count and still going strong”.

One local photographer invited us for a studio visit, where we got to see her wide collection of Custom Photo Prop furs. She’s washed them again and again and they still look great!

Photographer's Furs

Pretty spectacular, huh? You can’t get those same results with real fur. We hope that you’ll “Say no, go faux”- it’s the green, ethical, and guaranteed best quality choice! Check out our products today on our Website (click here).
