ARE YOU READY FOR A LONG-TERM RELATIONSHIP?
TWO SIMPLE STEPS TO ENSURE A HARD-WEARING PAIR OF GLOVES
Conditioning Your Gloves

Lanolin is the unsung hero of our gloves. The cheddar to our patty melt. The vapor barrier to our dream home. The oil change to our #adventure van.

Seriously though, the lanolin’s the natural oil in goat leather that keeps it supple, and no matter how you use your gloves, it will eventually begin to leave your leather.

That’s why you’ll want to condition your gloves every now and then. We use Fiebing’s Neatsfoot Oil, a 100% natural oil that is the best in the biz.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE

Apply oil to gloves or mittens (we just wear ours and pour it on)

Rub thoroughly until it's saturated the surface and seams.

Repeat any time the leather feels dry.

Conditioning the gloves will make the leather darker in color.

WATERPROOFING YOUR GLOVES

Despite being as rugged as your grandma, and protective as your grandma’s pit bull, in wet environments your goat leather gloves will eventually saturate with water.

If you’re a big skier or work underwater, you’ll want to add a waterproofing agent to your gloves, to keep as much water out as possible.

We use Skidmore’s Waterproofing, a blend of beeswax and natural oils - we’d never put petroleum products on our gloves.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE

Apply wax to gloves or mittens (we just wear ours and scoop it on).

Rub thoroughly until it has coated the surface, making sure to work wax into all seams.

Bake gloves in a 225° oven for 1-2 minutes.

Repeat whole process 2-3 times for maximum waterproofing.

What if I want to use both?

The answer is yes!

Just make sure to use the conditioner first, as the beeswax makes an impenetrable shield around the glove, and we want that conditioner to soak in deep.
