Lanolin
Lanolin
Lanolin is a natural wool wax that is used to grease wool covers. The 100% pure anhydrous lanolin comes from European sheep farms and is certified to be mulesing-free. Mulesing is a painful method to protect sheep against fly infestation, which is not applied in organic farming. Merino wool is very soft and cosy, and holds reliably tight after is has been greased with lanolin. It is further a pharmaceutical-grade lanolin that can be used for the entire body, especially for very dry skin, the care of the nipples during breastfeeding, and cracked lips. How to grease a wool cover: Take a cup of hot water, dissolve a bit of lanolin and add a detergent or green olive soap flakes to it. A milky emulsion is formed. If there are still greasy eyes on the surface, add a little more soap. The emulsion is then added to a larger bowl filled with hot water that is big enough to soak the wool cover. If the bowl is large enough you can add several covers on top of each other. Put the wool cover with the wool facing down into the water and let it bath for at least three hours. The wool cover should be completely covered and can be weighted with a small plate if necessary. Once the wool cover is fully bathed, take it out and rinse it with water that has the same temperature as the water in the bowl. Afterwards fold it in a towel and gently press the water out. Do not wring. Dry the cover flat lying on a drying reck. New wool covers must be greased 1-2 times before they get water-repellent.
