Blue, gery, clay-like colour that will go with anything. The finish is drier and crisper than traditional oilskins with a matt appearance. Unlike normal oilskin, there would be no oil transfer so you don’t need to line your garment or bag. This type of oilskin is water resistant, so this means that the water doesn’t completely run off it, but it won’t come through to the other side either. That being said, this is not to be used in a torrential downpour in Fiordland – although we’d like to hear back from anyone who does try this. Ideal for bags, accessories and any type of coat, jacket, parka etc.

- Care: We recommend not washing oilskin, the mill advises that it can be hand washed, but bear in mind you would lose its water-repellent finish. If you wash this cloth, you will need to re-proof it using our reproofing spray. Use a cool iron or just a finger press.
