How to care for and lanolise wool covers

Wool covers are designed to be used as a water-resistant cover over any style of nappy. They are surprisingly easy to care for and actually only need washing every 2-3 weeks (unless soiled).

For best results we recommend airing out between each use and lanolising after each wash. If you have a few in rotation you can wash even less frequently.

Step 01 - Wash

- Turn inside out and hand-wash in luke warm water with a little wool detergent
- Gently squeeze to distribute water and detergent
- Leave to soak for 15 - 30 mins
- Rinse and squeeze excess water out
- Your wool cover is now ready for lanolising, no need to dry

Step 02 - Lanolise

- Melt approx 1/2 teaspoon lanolin in a cup of boiling water with a dash of hand soap or baby wash
- Stir until milky (emulsified)
- Add the mixture to a small container of luke warm/cool water
- Turn the wool cover inside out and submerge in the mixture there should be just enough water to submerge the cover
- Leave for at least an hour or overnight
- Squeeze out and roll up in a towel to get rid of excess water
- Dry flat in shade


Tips: for heavier wetters you can slip an extra booster inbetween the night nappy and wool cover for added absorbency.
