Tmuffin Wool Soakers make babies look so cute you could eat ‘em up! With an embroidered pocket on the tush, they are as stylish and sassy as a pair of jeans. Made from upcycled 100% wool sweaters with hand embroidered and knitted embellishments, each soaker is one of a kind. Tmuffin wool soakers are lanolized and ready to wear.
- Wool is natural, renewable, and breathable. Not only does it absorb 30% of its weight in liquid before feeling damp, it has natural antibacterial properties which help reduce odors, and natural lanolin, which helps protect against leaks. Wool is warm in the winter, but it is also VERY breathable, which will keep baby cool in summer. Waterproof diaper covers with PUL can hold in moisture, heat, and bacteria, causing uncomfortable rashes. Wool covers allow air to circulate while absorbing moisture and preventing odors. Wool helps regulate baby’s body temperature, keeping baby warm in winter and cool in summer.
- Wool is stylish and cute! Soakers can be worn under clothes, but why cover them up? A t-shirt and a soaker make for an adorable summer outfit. Add baby leg warmers for an easy winter getup. It’s quick and easy to get baby dressed and out the door, and makes diaper changes easier.
Caring for Your Wool Soaker
You can use your wool soaker for 2-3 weeks before washing it. Simply air dry between uses to eliminate odors. Your soaker is ready to wash if it starts to smell or if it is soiled (read: POOP.)
Wool Soaker Washing Instructions
Hand wash in warm water or in your washer’s delicate cycle with cold water. Use a mild diaper cleanser (the same you use for your other diapers) or a wool wash. Lay flat or hang to dry (away from sunlight).
Wool Soaker Lanolizing Instructions
Wool’s natural lanolin helps make it waterproof. Over time, however, you will need to re-lanolize your diapers. You can use wool washes that contain lanolin, or your regular diaper soap and lanolize the diapers separately.
- Lay soaker in sink, and fill with enough hot water to cover soaker. In a small clean container with cap, like a trial-size shampoo bottle, squeeze about an inch of lanolin from a tube or a teaspoon of liquid lanolin. Add hot water*.
- Shake like crazy until water is milky and lanolin is melted and mixed with the water. Squeeze this water/lanolin mixture over soaker and massage it in. For best results, turn your soaker inside out and concentrate on the wet zone. Let soak for 15-20 minutes.
- Keep your water hot so that the lanolin stays melted. After 15-20 minutes, massage again. Remove soaker and squeeze out water by rolling in a towel. Do not wring. Hang or lay flat to dry.
