Homemade Woolies.

We are adopting a baby who is due December 15th! We are planning to cloth diaper in order to save money. So I have made quite a few soakers from old wool sweaters. What is this whole lanolizing?? Is there something more I need to do besides washing and drying the sweaters???

Congratulations! Lanolizing is much easier than it seems! I looked up instructions on and just use baby soap and Lanisoh lanolin in a bin of warm water. But you can also use liquid lanolin or wool wash.
