New wool

Do I have to wash this first or can I just felt it and then use my spray lanolin? Ive never used wool before so I'm clueless :-p

Re: New wool

My son is a super heavy wetter and we never needed to felt any of his woolies,except once which was a complete accident. I would hand wash them using wool wash (we use eucalan), lanolize them making sure to spray the inside and outside,lay them flat to air dry, and give them a try before you felted them because felting reduces all the stretch and shrinks your woolies by at least a size,and once the woolies are felted they can't be 'unfelted'.Maybe you could try adding more absorbency to the diaper as well?
