Woollie Warmers are cost effective, easy to use tools for reviving hypothermic lambs born in harsh conditions by immersing them in warm water.
Extremely simple to use, the strong plastic container made from medium-density polyethylene plastic is insulated and has a tight-fitting lid with a clasp fastener to retain heat for as long as possible. The lamb’s body is supported in an upright position by a rubber sling inside the Woollie Warmer, while the lamb’s head sticks out of a hole shaped to support the neck, and keep the lamb’s face out of water to prevent drowning.
