Lanolising Wool Wraps

You only need to wash your wool wraps when they get dirty with faeces, or if they seem a bit smelly. This should only be about every other week or so, more frequently with a newborn, since they are more likely to get faeces on the wrap. Wool wraps are best washed by hand in plain white vegetable or olive soap.

All About Wool Wraps

The most breathable cover of all is a wool wrap. It may seem odd to suggest wool as a waterproof cover, but think about how dry sheep and fishermen stay in their woollen outers: the secret is in the mesh of the fibres. As long as the nappy has plenty of absorbency, to hold onto the wet, a wool wrap is perfectly reliable, but will let the moisture seep through if the nappy itself is not sufficiently padded to cope with the volume of liquid.

Wool Longies, Shorties & Skirties

I must admit wool covers are something I've never really got into myself as Iíve always found PUL wraps worked really well on my children. You can get wool longies which look like trousers, shorties which are more like shorts or skirties for girls which are a knitted skirt with knitted knickers attached underneath. They come in different colours so look very pretty, they can be custom made to fit, they are soft and much more breathable than PUL. They will also eventually compost down.
