    Default Help! Cleaners shrunk my shearling coat!

    My beautiful shearling ( original size 12) was shrunk by the cleaners to about a size 4. I need to apply something and stretch it back out. Can anyone supply the detailed directions and the products involved ? Or is there a service that will do this for me, and how much would it cost? Thanks!

    To stretch, first the skin has to be relaxed with Hydrator-3.3 and it then stretch back to the original size. Fatliquor-5.0 may also be applied to replenish the original lost fat and oil that cause the shrinkage. The leather rejuvenating hand process utilizing the Hydrator-3.3 > Fatliquor-5.0 > Hydrator-3.3 system is found in this Leather Doctor Kit-Sr3 (read the review - how it rejuvenate a 40 year old sheepskin coat). The other products are supportive system to deliver a holistic approach to cleaning, conditioning and protection.

    See the general instructions there as well.

    Tips on Stretching:

    1- Work may be performed a panel at a time.

    2- Wet out the entire panel and use a curve object like a large spoon or a small sauce plate and work with ver slow smooth force towards the seams.

    3- Make sure to add Hydrator-3.3 to relaxed it and Fatliquor-5.0 to replenish it.

    4- You should see improvement when is performed as described.

    Note:
    Sheepskin can be stretch up to 60% in size when there is sufficient Fatliquor-5.0.
    An example is sheepskin glove, how many sizes are there typically; they all fit hand sizes well when stretched.
    It will also will rip and tear when there is insufficient Fatliquor-5.0 when dry.
