Care Instructions

Hand wash only when necessary - max 30 degrees

Washing (and Using) Reausable Nappies

Available in 40g, 50g, 100g and 200g tins.

40g tins are oblong and are flat enough to fit in a large letter for postage.

Put together in South London by Beth

Each lanolising treatment uses approx. 5g, so 50g would last about a year if treating one item once per month.

 

Lanolin is a natural sheep fat obtained in process of cleaning wool. It’s a perfect moisturizer- you can use it directly on your skin. Many new mothers use it at the beginning of breastfeeding, as it helps with cracked nipples.

Lanolin is also an essential ingredient of lanolin wool treatment, that we need to make every so often to make wool covers waterproof and antibacterial. Preparing “home made” lanolin treatment is simple and doesn’t need a lot of time.

We use it to lanolise woollen shorties, wraps and longies (trousers), essentially washing the lanolin back into the wool to give it back its natural waterproof qualities.Instructions:

1. Hand wash your new or old wool items in wool wash or even just baby shampoo in luke warm (30 degree) water. Rinse and squeeze out the excess water. Refill your sink or bowl with luke-warm water.

2. In a mug or similar receptacle add 1tsp (a tbsp if 2+ items) of solid lanolin to a cup of boiling water with a couple of drops of wool wash or baby shampoo. This emulsifies the lanolin, making it look milky when thoroughly dissolved.

3. Add the lanolin mixture to the water, stir and add your wool item(s).

4. Leave for 30 mins (or a few hours if you want). Have a cuppa.

5. Gently squeeze the water out of your woollies. Lay flat on a towel and roll up tightly in the towel to squeeze out as much of the water as possible.

6. Hang up to dry - this will take approx. 2 days (unless you have a dehumidifier).

Want LESS laundry?

A wool cover over a flat or fitted nappy could be the answer.

Wool is treated with lanolin (natural sheep wax) which makes it water resistant and anti-microbial.

The best bit is you only need to hand-wash it ONCE A MONTH or if it gets poo on it.
