Question Wool soap has lanolin do u still need to do extra lanolizing?

I'm new to wool ~ actually i havent' even got any yet LOL but it will be on its way soon and i found the wool soap in a hard bar ~ says its 45% lanolin ~ do you still need the extra lanolin to put on it or is the lanolin in the soap all you need? THANKS!!

it still does need extra lanolin, the lanolin in the soap just helps the lanolin that you rub in last a bit longer but you still need to do a good lanolinizing every 3-4wks

it could be enough depending on your wool and your child. i would just get some lanolin to be sure.. it last forever..

Soap with lanolin counteracts the natural depletion of lanolin from washing...so you will still need to lanolize, but much less often than if you were using soap without lanolin. When the wool seems more damp after use than usual, it's time to lanolize (you don't have to wait for a leak). I lanolize every 2 months or so, but some mamas do it less often than that. HTH! Enjoy your new wool when it comes!
