Merchant & Mills Flax / Cotton Dry Oilskin – Nicotine

$63.00 /meter

Curious what Oilskin is?  Oilskin is cotton canvas that is treated with an emulsified wax (it’s vegan!). This binds a wax-based product with water to give a non-oily finish which can be washed and re-proofed. The solution is heat-processed into the cloth for a longer lasting finish and higher performance. The finish is dry and crisp with a matte appearance.  Lines and creases are part of the character of the fabric. To care for and sew with it, you use a cool setting on your iron and hand wash only.  And don’t worry, it doesn’t gum up your machine, but you will want to use a fresh needle and rotary cutter per project.  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.  The addition of flax to this particular oilskin makes for a lovely slubby woven appearance and a slightly heavier weight and durability.
