Lanolin is a naturally occurring wax found in wool fiber. It is cleaned out of the wool during processing the fibers for fabric and yarn. We only use the purest pharmaceutical grade lanolin. Lanolin conditions the wool fibers and gives the waterproof protection we love about wool. Lanolin also increases the wool’s anti-bacterial properties to help your diaper cover self-clean between uses and naturalize urine. See the tabs below for more information.
Machine wash wool?
Doesn’t that sound like a dream? Well lets make it a reality. We have partnered with Unicorn Laundry Care products because they are the best product I have found for our wool. Find a retailer near you or in our shop.
Our wool is thick and soft and likes to hold fluid. Which means it will hold onto soap and detergent unless it is rinsed and washed well. So we highly recommend using not only very little soap, but also to rinse well.
Unicorn Beyond Soft in a natural Fabric Conditioner. It helps keeps the fibers soft and healthy.
Step 1 Dissolve 1 TBSP of Unicorn Beyond Clean in some water
Step 2 Add wool to your washing machine
Step 3 Add dissolved detergent to the dispenser
Step 4 Turn on washer to Cool setting (use wool setting or lower spin)
Do a secondary rinse cycle, aka rinse and spin with pre-dissolved Beyond Soft Conditioner.
We also recommend doing this every so often to refresh your wool between washes. It removed light soiling and neutralized salts
