    Default Repairing Shearling Coat

    Hello i was ordering the Kit-As4, which is the "shearling swede mold odor killer".
    But before paying, I was wondering if one pack is enough for a jacket that has size M.
    Also i noticed that my coat has some white dots on both arms (please see the pictures below) , do you know if I will need other products. I was reading that the hydrator 3.3 and fatliquor 5.0 should be enough, and those are includen in the kit-As4 pack. This jacket has also minor tears on the nappa swede.. Do I need some special patch for it and then dye it with the colour of the jacket?

    I would appreciate your answer.. I live currently in Finland and i would prefer to buy all in once, instead of ordering each time.
    If you could list me all what i would need. I think i will definitely take the mold odor kit, but what else would i need, based on the pictures below. And i would appreciate your answer asap, thus i can make the order with the fastest service.
    Regards and thanks for the help

    You may add individual refills to your order, and better to have left overs to be used again in the near future then short. And to save on shipping, freezing and shipping damages, the ‘Fill’ version is more popular, just mix and fill up with distilled water and it is ready to use.


    >>> Also i noticed that my coat has some white dots on both arms (please see the pictures below),

    Unless we know the cause of the white dots, other then appearance


    >>> I was reading that the hydrator 3.3 and fatliquor 5.0 should be enough, and those are includen in the kit-As4 pack.
    It depends on how dry of its existing fatliquor (ionic charged fat and oil) is (the creases and folding of the sleeves shows it is very dry). Enough is average 14% fat and oil content when dry based on tannery standard.


    >>> This jacket has also minor tears on the nappa swede..


    Invisible mending is done by stitching, donor suede from other areas and Bond-3D

    >>> Do I need some special patch for it
    Using a Patch-4S is not aesthetically pleasing in appearance.

    >>> and then dye it with the colour of the jacket?

    There are 3 medium of coloring for suede:
    Suede-17 is transparent dyestuff and dyes deep into the leather structure.
    Suede-28 is translucent, a hybrid of aniline and pigment.
    Suede-39 is opaque, coloring for a good surface covering.
    DyeFix-99 is to fix the dyestuff from crocking and bleeding.
    Protector-S/S+ reduces friction rubs.

    Further questions are welcome.

    Thanks so much, i made the order, but i will write you later because i still don't know how to use the Bond-3D, I ordered the Kit and the refills.
    The order should take 2-3 days but when i pay it did not have any option for delivery service. But I hope it arrived before Friday.
    Regards
