wool pants

our wool pants leak even lanolized in the crotch. i want to love them but my daughter needs a undershirt under her clothes becasue of her climate. Do others have leaking?

also they stink horribly when wet in. the short ones and long ones.

thanks

Re: wool pants

what type of diapers are you using?

many say that wool is only as good as the diapers you are using under them

it can be normal for wool to be damp but not soaking wet/leaking

and it shouldn't stink - what are you washing the wool with?

Re: wool pants

are you washing the wool with country save?

are you lanolizing really well? are you lanolizing only the crotch or the whole item?

Re: wool pants

I would suggest just handwashing with wool wash (like ENI which has a lot of lanolin in it)...I usually have to lanolize new wool pants a few times for them to work well. GL!

Re: wool pants

Sounds like you need to relanolize. I never got the proportions correct when I tried to use Lansinoh. I recommend buying a wool wash - Ewe Need It or Northern Essence are my favs.

Re: wool pants

Also a scented wool wash will get rid of the yucky wet sheep smell when wet!
