You'll need some lanolin. You can get it from most of the WAHM nappy or woolly sites, or you can normally get it in your local pharmacy (they might need to order it in for you though) ask them for anhydrous lanolin.

Then if you look in the 'Pure Wool' section of the forum, there's a thread on how to lanolise your woollies to make them waterproof.

HTH :)
