Kowing how to lanolize wool can be a useful skill to have as a parent. But how do you know that your cover actually needs it? Well, there are some common signs that you can watch out for. If the wool sits on top of the water when you wash it and you notice little pools of water gathering above the surface then it likely does not require lanolizing.
However, if the wool sinks and saturates fully then you have confirmed that it is time to lanolize the wool.
As a parent you are likely to have baby wash around, this will be your key product to avoid any excess scents and these tend to be safer for sensitive skin.
Make sure that you let the wool sit for at least 5 minutes and then you can turn it inside out and rinse thoroughly.
After this you can follow the normal steps to lanolize wool with liquid lanolin. If you are looking for more DIY ideas then creating baby blankets can be very useful. Be sure to check out our picks for the best yarn for baby blankets.
