THis might be a daft question but bare with me please.

Lanolin is made from sheep fat right! So how do I lanolise my nice new wool nappies if I am vegan. Or am I going OTT with the vegan bit after all the wool had to come from the sheep.

Please don't laugh at my question.

Lanolin is a highly refined oil derived from wool grease which is scoured (washed) from natural sheep's wool.

sorry a little new here but have been lurking a while. does vegan mean that it is no animal products at all? are you bringing your children up the same?
