Lanolin supplied in 50g jars.

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.

I used this on a Disana wool overpants and followed the instructions from Knots and Dots. 3 treatments with this lanolin and the wrap works brilliantly overnight - no leaks and the pants are still soft to the touch.

I initially purchased this as I had made a woollen puddle pad and needed to make it waterproof. This seemed the best solid lanolin on the market. I was pleased with the easy ordering and quick delivery, and also the extra advice you can find on The Nappy Lady blog. It worked really well. I have since used it again after purchasing 2 Disana wool over pants, and again, followed the advice from the blog, which worked really well. It is a bit fiddly, and I'm sure buying the Disana wool wash would be easier, but this seemed better value over time.
