Lightbulb Wool Pads Question

I have some Imse Vimse wool pads. They have two layers of wool and one of silk. I seem to leak through them easily . . . they get stiff with milk fast. Are the Lana care pads like these or are they better? I need breathability, and I have less plugged ducts with wool, so I want to stick with it, but I'm wondering if Lana is that much better? And do you have to have the Lana wool wash, or can you just use a wool wash bar like you use for your wool covers?

Re: Wool Pads Question

I've never tried the Imse Vimse, only Lana, both sofline and ekstra, and I the ekstra! I never leaked through them (even my one leaky side ) and rarely had to wash them. I used their wool wash, but I see no reason not to use whatever wool wash you have, provided you are not sensitive to it - you wouldn't want anything to irritate your nipples!

My only advice is go larger than you think... I found it was more comfortable that way.

Re: Wool Pads Question

I have the regular lana, and I really don't use them because I leak through...I wish I'd gone with the ekstra.

Re: Wool Pads Question

I need to get the Ekstra as I tend to leak through on my "leaky' side if I wear the regular Lana ones too long........ otherwise I like them and use the Lana Wool Wash.
