British Soft Oilskin 4.9oz - Claret - Merchant & Mills

$14.50 CAD

A water-resistant light weight cotton blend in a bright wine red. It has a soft wax feel with a dry handle which will crease and crack adding an aged look. Unlike normal oilskin there would be no oil transfer, so you don’t need to line your garment or bag.

Perfect for making light weight breathable outerwear like our Parka, or a super practical Orton bag.

This is a deadstock fabric. Deadstock fabric is excess fabric from fashion designers, movie sets, and fabric mills that is no longer needed for the job it was originally intended for. It is not reorderable, so when it’s gone, it’s really gone.

  • Made in the UK.
  • Hand wash only, cool setting iron.
  • Do not use any interfacing with this type of cloth.

Fibre Content: 50% nylon, 50% cotton

Width: 150 cm wide

Length: Sold per half meter increment / 39.5"

Weight: 4.9oz /165gsm.

Samples NOT available.


The finish is drier and crisper than our other oilskins with a matt appearance. Hand wash only, use a cool setting on your iron. 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. To reproof use our reproofing spray.

 

Dry Oilskin is treated with an emulsified wax. This binds a wax-based product with water to give a non-oily finish. The solutions are heat-processed into the cloth for a longer lasting finish and higher performance. The finish is vegan.

 

Ideal for bags and accessories and particularly fab for an outdoor Top 64 and Landgate top.
