The Nappy Lady Solid Lanolin is supplied in 50g aluminimum 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.

How to Lanolise Your Wraps

  • After washing the whole cover, set it aside.
  • In a bowl with lukewarm water (no more than 30deg), rub your wool soap in your hands so that the water becomes cloudy.
  • Then melt a pea size amount of lanolin, either in the microwave or in a small amount of boiling water.
  • Add to the soapy water and mix together.  The water should look very milky in appearance with no clumps to show it is emulsified correctly.
  • Now soak your wrap in this solution for 8 hours if it is your first time lanolising or 15 minutes for re-lanolising. There is no need to rinse after lanolising.
  • To dry gently squeeze out excess water or place the wrap inside a clean dry towel.
  • Reshape the cover whilst damp and lay flat to air dry naturally. If the cover feels a bit sticky once dried, don't worry! It will be fine to wear just use a little bit less next time.

Easy to use, seems to work

I used this to waterproof some handmade wool wraps. Have yet to test on an actual child but during my experiments with water, the wraps have stayed dry on the outside! I followed the nappy lady instructions for lanolising and repeated 3 times

Great for wool wraps

I used this on my two Disana wool overpants using the Nappy Lady instructions in the 'Care of Wool Wraps' article. I've definitely not perfected the technique yet, but it's still working a treat!
The lanolin is solid but soft, even in winter, and the wide jar makes it really easy to scoop.

Scoop, disolve and go

The whole purchase was simple, despatch and delivery speedy and the product great, I'm still waiting for the wrap to dry but it was very easy to scoop out a bit (I guessed on the amount so more instructions would be useful), dissolve in hot water, add cold water and leave the wrap in for a bit. Comes in a plain plastic tub that could be re-used.

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.
