When you buy your new wool soaker you need to lanolise it before first use. Once lanolised the soaker will become waterproof and can then be worn over any cloth nappy to provide a natural, soft and breathable protective wrap, perfect for night times.

When the wool is still a fleece and attached to the sheep, the sheep produces a natural substance called lanolin.

Lanolin is like a wax, it coats the wool and protects the sheep by making its fleece waterproof. Keeping it snug and warm in even the harshest of winters, yet remaining breathable so the sheep doesn’t overheat in summer. Clever stuff!

When the sheep is shorn and the fleece sent for processing into wool, the processors remove the lanolin to make the wool easy to spin into balls of yarn and then for us to make garments.

All you are doing is putting the lanolin back into the wool after we have created our lovely squishy covers.

For lanolising one wool diaper cover: dissolve one teaspoon of lanolin in a small amount of hot water. Add a drop of shampoo and mix until milky liguid is obtained. Pour it into a larger container and fill up with warm water. The lanolising bath is now ready.

Place the wool cover in the bath and let soak thorougly. You can then remove them from the bath and squeeze gently. Shape the cover in its original size, stretching them in length. Dry laid flat.

You will also find the instructions at the back of the packaging.

It is normal for the wool cover to be slightly sticky after lanolising. It is a sign of a successfull treatment and will diminish after several uses.

Lanolises well

Does what it says on the tin. Lanolises a wool wrap well. Should last a long time.
