Caring for Your Wonderful, Wonderful Wool

Pure Lanolin from ECDT Member Katidids
Well, our month of wool is almost up, and I thought I'd take this chance to make sure our followers and especially the winner of our Wool Promo, are well informed about wool care products.

Last week we discussed how to care for your wool covers. You can go very basic with the stuff you have on hand, or buy premade wool care products.

I'd also like to highlight another wool product that ties in with cloth diapers: Wool Dryer Balls.
If you already use cloth diapers you know that fabric softeners and dryer sheets are a big no-no for cloth diapers. So what do you use? Yes, you can use those spiky little plastic dryer balls, but in my experience they do not hold up. The little bumps begin to break off and then they completely break in half. Wool dryer balls are great!

You can buy them commercially and there are plenty of Etsy sellers as well. OR you can make your own!
