Exclamation Wool reminder?

Anyone wanna refresh my memory? We have some wool here we are going to be using (3 pairs once this last pair of woollybottoms gets here) with PFs...

Do I change the wool after ever diaper change and let it air out and put new wool on like I used to do with PUL covers? Can I just use the same pair of wool all day if it doesn't get pooped on? How often should I wash/ lanolize them?

I just lanolized them yesterday....and I have NE wool wash coming as well as a lanolin mister if that makes any difference.

Thanks!

I leave Ashlyn in the same wool all day unless they get pooped on or feel damp to the touch. (or stink of course, lol). We haven't had any problems so far.

Re: Wool reminder?

If the wool feels damp inside then I switch another woolie to let it air out, but if it doesn't then I put it back on.
I wash every 2 weeks and I don't do separate lanolizing... my wash has enough were I don't do separate lanolizing.

Adding lanolin to your wool to improve it's waterproofness.
