Why we love Anavy – Pull-Up Nappy Cover X-Large (Wool)
Anavy Pull-Up’s lining, hems and inner layer are 100% virgin wool with an outer decorative layer of 95% cotton and 5% elastane. Wool is natural and incredibly breathable. These Pull-Up’s are very comfortable without any elastics, only wide comfortable hems. Wool absorbs any leaks from the nappy underneath which are then neutralised by the natural lanolin in the wool. If the Pull-Up’s get damp, then just hang it out to dry. Wool has natural self-cleaning abilities which leave the Pull-Up’s hygienically clean. If they become soiled or start leaking, then you will need to wash and relanolise as below. Wool wraps are sold unlanolised. Please lanolise before first use to waterproof the wool or they will not work. We recommend doing this three times before use to create a great “barrier” but, to be honest, most people don’t. You will need to repeat about once a month. Full details below.
How to use
Wool covers can be used over any absorbant nappy- muslin square, prefold or a fitted nappy. The best combination is with a nappy that fits well around the legs thus preventing the delicate wool from being soiled.
The cover fits all babies according to the size table over most nappies. The weight indications are approximate, always measure your baby.
- S (3-7 kg) — waist 24-40 cm, thigh 14-22 cm, rise approx. 46 cm
- M (6-10 kg) — waist 32-45 cm, thigh 18-28 cm, rise approx. 51 cm
- L (9-13 kg) — waist 40-55 cm, thigh 22-35 cm, rise approx. 54 cm
- XL (12-16 kg) — waist 46-64 cm, thigh 26-38 cm, rise approx. 60 cm
Care must be taken when washing wool. Hand or machine wash on a 30C wool programme but never a hotter wash. Gently stir and squeeze. Rinse using water at the same temperature, otherwise your wool will be subjected to “shock” and might felt up, so 30C again. DO NOT: Don’t wring, soak, brush or rub vigorously as the wool fibres may be damaged and your garment may felt up and shrink. Just squeeze the water through. To dry, gently squeeze water out and wrap your wool clothes in a towel to remove the excess water. Air-dry naturally avoiding direct heat. So, hanging on a drying rack over the bath is good, or on a clothes horse, or flat on a dry towel. Re-shape while damp.
