Poppets Lanolin is 100% Pure Anhydrous Lanolin with added fragrance.
Lanolin is extracted from freshly shorn sheeps wool and is a natural byproduct of the sheering process. When you have a new wool nappy cover, it will have been striped of lanolin so by lanolising the wool cover you are creating the natural water repelling, evaporation properties back into the wool.
Poppets lanolin is used to give your wool nappy covers a natural water resistant layer.
You can use Poppets lanolin along side Poppets and our other wool care products for easy and gentle wool care maintenance.
Start by filling a bucket or sink with lukewarm water, enough to cover your wool cover. No hotter than 30 degrees.
Put 1/4 tsp of lanolin per cover into a standard mug, then add a Poppet (or a squirt of baby wash).
Add freshly boiled water to fill the mug, stir until fully dissolved - the solution will go milky.
Pour the whole mug of solution into the lukewarm water.
Submerge the wool cover and leave to soak for 4 hours. For new wool covers, repeat the process a further 2 times, no need to dry in between soaks. If refreshing a wool cover, just the one soak is sufficient.
To dry, gently squeeze the wool then lay out on a dry towel. Roll the towel up to squeeze out the excess. Then lay flat or hang to dry.
