Fabric Dressing

Fabric Dressing that works is hard to come by. We know how damp and miserable poorly performing rain gear will leave you. Consequently, our state-of-the-art weatherproofing formulation keeps you dry longer bar none. First, our base of natural oils and waxes seep into your fabric. Second, TYLOL binds with both synthetic and natural fibers for an impenetrable barrier against the elements. Finally, you will never need to run your article through the wash again. Just brush off dirt and debris and occasionally spot clean areas of high grime buildup. For lighter gear and general proofing maintenance, check out our Fabric Weatherproofing Bar. Also, check out a great article about the process of weatherproofing on Instructables.

Fabric Dressing lowdown

  • Reproof or apply durable waterproofing to your work gear – Our hot wax fabric water repellent is easily brushed onto your canvas denim or blended work gear. It soaks into the fibers for years of rugged protection.
  • Our Fabric Dressing is formulated to take abuse – We have tested our formulation in the harshest of environments, from wrenching on heavy machinery to forestry work. Our proprietary mixture can take abuse and keep on going.
  • Natural oils, beeswax & pine tar – We source all our ingredients locally in Pennsylvania. We work with the men and women harvesting honeycomb and extracting natural oils for our fabric wax. These products are pure and great care goes into every product we produce.
  • Non toxic – There are toxic chemicals used to process and render commercial off the shelf oil and wax products. We forego unnecessary processing with careful temperature and agitation control. We put in the time to make this product right and safe to wear. As always, we are PFAS free.
  • Proudly made in Pennsylvania USA – Our operation is proudly based in Pennsylvania. We source everything from Pine tar to our packaging locally, supporting the local economy.
  • Impervious to the elements – Beeswax and natural oils soak into fabric, totally saturating the material, leaving a wet sheen that is impervious to dirt, mud and rain. This wax is great for rubbing into denim work gear, bags and most synthetic cotton blends for extra protection.

  1. George Romanov

    Perfect for my Filson jacket.

  2. Emma Olson

    The scent is mild but enveloping at first. A piney wonderland of waterproofing in a tin. Wonderful and handy for a handbag in need.

  3. Greg Kinman

    Heating it in a pot of water is a chore, but it looks classic on my Filson jacket.

  4. Richard Hewitt

    There is nothing better.

  5. Edd Johnson

    DWR is great for light rain in town. If you hike or spend any real-time in nature, this fabric waterproofing is a necessity.

  6. Eileen Dover

    It’s hard to simmer and apply without making a mess. I know it’s natural but can you make it in a spray bottle?
