Re: What is lanolizing method?

A good cover is important, but an adequate soaker is vital. The cover is only as good as the absorbent material under it.

I like to take my covers and lift them up out of the water and let the water drain through them. I think this helps the cover to "catch" more lanolin in the fibers.

I was thinking the same as you when I first started with wool. "What is all the hype? It leaked!" Once I used a thicker soaker pad in it and lanolized it again, it is the GREATEST thing I've EVER used!

Good luck! Don't give up!
