Lanolising advice

Hi just lanolised (is this the correct term?!) my Woollywraps and some other outers I have and was just wondering - is it the messiest thing ever?!
The guidelines say to use 25ml lanolin per 100g dry weight nappy, so 3 nappies plus 2 woolly wraps is 400g so used 100ml lanolin. It seems like loads and it doesn't all dissolve and little flecky bits float round, the bucket is nearly impossible to clean afterwards and the nappies seem sticky...
Whats wrong? Or is this normal and I'm making a bit of a fuss.... help!!

Sounds like you used too much lanolin. Is it pure lanolin or wool cure? These are the instructions I got with my woolywrap.

Yup, too much lanolin

They'll be ok, after the first wearing they stop being sticky (and baby gets very soft legs), and they will be ultra waterproofed!

2 - 3 tbs in 2 pints......... oops!!! I wonder why my instructions say 25ml for 200ml and per 100g dry nappy? It did seem like a lot!
Is it OK to have a waterproof baby? I mean it won't seal all her pores or anything?!
The other outers are very old, they are called wunderpants, german, anyone heard of them?

oh and that is so the thing i would do - which is why im still scared of wool! Waterproof baby - cool!
