I got a small angora cover at the last stocking. It is soooo beautiful and fits so well!!! However, (and I hate to say it aloud) we have been having some real performance issues with it <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/bag.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Bag">:<br><br>
My son's clothes have been wet every time we've used it, and this hasn't happened with any of his other wool.<br><br>
I don't know what to do??? Of course I will try lanolin, but this happened the first time we used it. Anyone else have this experience with her angora covers?<br><br>
Help!!! I want to just LOVE this cover!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love">

I had the same experiance. Maria doesnt lanolize her covers. Some wahm do, some don't. Not sure abt angora, but I had to lanolize my broadcloth 2 times and I think it might need one more and then it will be invincible!! so, fear not...you can continue to love and cuddle your beautiful cover, you just have to lanolize it first.

Hi:<br><br>
I don't lanolize my covers before sending them. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/bag.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Bag">:<br>
Sometimes is OK if the baby is not a heavy wetter, in your case, you should lanolize it ASAP.<br>
Just soak it in your sink with luquewarm watter and add a bit of metled lanolin mixed with hot water with a TINY bit of baby shampoo.<br>
Don't add it to the cover or it may felt. Take the cover out first and swish the water well before putting the cover to soak.<br>
After 20 minutes or so, gently get most of the water off and roll on to a towell to get most of the liquid out. Hang to dry.<br>
I should be much better now <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

I got a broadcloth from the last stocking and I haven't noticed any problems at all, and my DS is a moderate wetter. I'm actually afraid to wash it because it's so beautiful, but maybe I should lanolize just in case.

I used my Kiwi Pie right after I got it and I haven't needed to lanolize mine. Well I just did recently, but that's because I like to do all my wool at once.<br><br>
I LOVE my Kiwi Pie too!!

I'll tell ya'll a secret. I've NEVER washed or lanolized my cashmere/wool blends (oatmeal and rice) and they never stink and they never stop performing wonderfully. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/bag.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Bag">: I guess maybe becuase they don't get used too frequently due to my large wool rotation? I dunno, but I'm waiting for some slight odor or wicking before I lanolize them...

I've had to wash my rice a couple of times due to "accidents" but never lanolized it and it still is completely waterproof and one of my nighttime covers! :LOL
