If you are looking for maximum breathability our wool nursing pads could be a great choice for you!
The yarn used for the wool interlock is Oeko-Tex Standard 100 certified wool blend yarn which is the highest standard in the industry to ensure extensive testing for harmful substances including lead, etc.
This fabric is specifically manufactured with wool fibers fine enough (not itchy!) to be worn next to delicate skin.
There is a little stretch to this fabric that allows it to easily conform to your body.
The basic nursing pad has 2 layers of felted wool interlock. This is fairly heavy weight fabric especially after being felted. Two layers are sufficient for most women. An additional layer is available (see drop down menu) if extra absorbency is desired.
Available in 4.25" diameter and 5.5". Pricing is per pair.
Preferred Care: handwash in lukewarm water, air dry. You may lanolize if you wish.
If you have to sterilize the pads (for example during times when you are suffering from a breast yeast infection) you may kill the yeast spores by placing the pads into the overn right after washing for 10 minutes at 210 degrees.
The wool in the nursing pads acts similar to wool diaper covers where lanolizing results in the wool being better able to absorb the moisture as well as containing it.
