Poppets Baby Lanopod Overview

Poppets Lanopods are the ultimate simple and easy solution for lanolising of wool nappy covers.

Lanopods are an 'all in one' pod that are the perfect blend of lanolin and soap. Just by adding water they are turned into a lanolising solution for new or existing wool nappy covers. 

Poppets Lanopods are gentle on your wool wraps and leave your wraps water-resistent and smelling divine. Lanopods make wool care ultra simple!

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.

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 occassionally and are just aired inbetween washes.

Lanolin on the woolen 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.

How Do I Use them?

Follow Poppets Lanopod 'no faff' method below for the easiest way to lanolise.


  • In a jug, pour 100 ml of freshly boiled water over 1 Lanopod.
  • Leave for 5 mins stirring occasionally until the solution is milky & fully dissolved.
  • Pour the solution into 200 ml of cold water.
  • Submerge the wool cover & gently work the solution into the fibers for a few mins.


  • Lay the wool on a large towel & roll up squeezing out excess water.
  • Lay wool flat to dry.

Use any remaining solution to do another cover straight away or dispose of down the loo.

When you buy your new wool soaker or wool wrap you normally 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.

So easy to use and smell incredible. Proof will be in the pudding once wrap has dried and tested.
