Why do I need to lanolise my wool wraps?

Wool naturally repels dirt and the lanolin neutralises odours and liquids. Due to these natural properties of wool, woollen items only need to be washed occasionally and are just aired in-between washes.

Lanolin on the woollen fibres gets "used up" as it neutralises urine in your nappies. The Lanolin in the Poppets Lanopods replaces this used lanolin, the wool fibres absorb the lanolin and the woollen product is protected again. Lanolin is a very important part of the woollen items self-cleaning power to keep them clean and fresh by only airing.

What is lanolin?

Lanolin is a natural waxy substance produced by sheep to coat its fleece. It helps keep sheep dry & regulates temperature, just like a wool cover will do on your baby. Lanolin is removed from the fleece when processed into wool. By lanolising a wool nappy cover you are simply adding the lanolin & all its properties back into the wool.
