*About Wool**


- by nature wool is antibacterial, breathable, 100% natural, and self cleaning
- As it is breathable, air can circulate through and assist wee to evaporate. As it takes away moisture, wool also allows air to the skin so the nappy area stays cooler and dryer. It can also help with skin conditions and as the area is cool rashes are less likely to appear
- When natural sheep oil called lanolin is applied to wool nappy covers, this creates a water resistance coating on the wool. It helps make the wool waterproof, and it also reacts with urine to produce salts.
- Wool keeps little ones warm in winter and cool in summer. 
- Wool also absorbs 30% of its weight in fluid before it feels damp so this adds an extra layer of absorbency to the nappy.
- Wool covers only need to be washed/lanolised every few weeks (if they are not soiled) which means one could use wool full-time with as few as 3-5 covers.

*** Caring for you wool nappy cover ***

Wool is easier to care for than other fibres, though the process is different. Since wool is self cleaning, it will only need to be washed/ lanolised every few weeks to a month (depending on wool rotation and soiling.) Provided nappy changes occur regularly, prior to the nappy becoming overly saturated to dampen the inner wool, a single can continue to be used throughout the day and a different one for the night. After using the woolly, turn it inside out and hang to air out/dry and use a different wooly for night. Should a woolly become soiled with wee, turn it inside out and air dry it. Once it is dry, it will smell fresh again. When a woolly loses its fresh scent when dry, this is the que to wash/ lanolise it again. 

If your woolly becomes slightly soiled with a little poo prior to needing a full wash and lanolin treatment. You may spot clean it in the area by applying a gentle soap that is ph 5.5 or less to wash to the affected area and gently rubbing. Then rinse the area cleaned and hang to dry. 

Woolly lanolin treatments can be prolonged by using a spray lanolin to top up lanolin on woolly between uses as well. 

***Washing/ Lanolising***

When your woolly becomes less water resistant or whiffy after airing it is time to wash/lanolise.
- Fill sink with lukewarm water and add a squirt gentle soap of ph 5.5 or less and a little splash of distilled white vinegar or pinch of citric acid  in the water. **Please note a soap of higher ph with cause the dye to bleed**
- Soak woolly for 10-20 minutes then drain water and refill sink with lukewarm water for lanolising. Gently squeeze water from woolly and set to the side. 
- In a separate heat resistant container/ coffee cup add a half teaspoon of solid lanolin, fill with hot kettle water and let the lanolin melt. Once lanolin is melted, squirt of baby wash or dish soap and stir until the water becomes a milky colour which shows lanolin has emulsified. 
- Pour lanolin combination into sink and mix with lukewarm water. *Just enough water to cover woolly. for hand-dyed woollies also ad a little splash of distilled white vinegar or pinch of citric acid to preserve colour. 
- Soak woolly in lanolin for at least 4 hours. Best overnight. 
- Squeeze out water from woolly and either roll in a towel to remove excess water or put in wash machine on spin cycle. 
- Hang to dry. Viola!
