I wouldn't worry about it... hard to tell from the pic.. but it doesn't look like it is a danger to the sling.... I had a Curly get stuck in a molt and left a good portion of the old skin on the front of her... she was able to clean it off herself in a few days.

I would wait a couple days, than if that does not work, do what Jacen says to moisten it and pull it off.

I have an adult female g. rosea that is shall we say........"portly"? it molted over a year ago and it still has a piece of old molt stuck at the front of the abdomen, at times it sticks up and reminds me of a feather sticking up or alfalfa with his cow lick. I left it on.....viva la difference.......
