Poppets Baby Lanopods: the simple way to lanolise wool nappy covers.
Lanopods are a simple solution for easy peasy lanolising of wool nappy covers. They're an 'all in one' pod that can be used to make the perfect solution for lanolising new or existing wool nappy covers.
Most wool nappy covers need to be lanolised before their first use, after washing & between uses as the lanolin wears off. A lanolised wool cover is water resistant & can be worn over cloth nappies in place of a PUL cover to provide a breathable, soft & natural cover. 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.
Follow our '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.
To dry, 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.
(For new wool, you may need to repeat within the first week. After lanolising 2-3 times, your wool will begin to last longer)

For anyone dubious of trying wool because of the lanolising process seeming complicated this changed everything! Literally dissolve it in boiled water, chuck in some cold water and dunk ya woolies! Job done! Smells amazing, unbelievably easy and adorable too! Win win win 🙏🏻 pic of my little one helping aka standing in the bowl 😂
