Hi Roger,

I recently purchased a sheepskin coat. I decided it needed a clean due to the odor so I purchased:

(order #2010 currently on its way to me)

Then, in a fit of stupidity and impatience, I decided the put the jacket in the washing machine! The 'vintage' smell was just too much! Higher powers of sheepskin, please forgive me I did use a non biological detergent (Ecover Wool) and put it on a wool wash setting, and dried it flat away from direct heat and used a suede brush + finger massaging + towel brushing intermittently whilst drying so it did not lose shape, stiffen or shrink.

But of course, the jacket has lost its fats that needs to be restored as seen in the now wrinkly appearance in the photos. It is very dry and looks sad So I thought, now why not revamp the entire jacket totally, and in addition to my above order, I purchased:

2 x Hydrator-3.3
2 x Fatliquor-5.0
1 x Protector-S
2 x Towel-5
(order #2013, which I asked you to hold on posting as perhaps I need to add some more products to this order currently on its way to me)

As far as I understand, the process will be to clean the wool side first: CleanOdor-4.5>CleanWool-5.5>DegreaserWool-5.6>RinseWool-4.0

Before moving on to the suede side. My plan was just to rehydrate the suede using: Hydrator-3.3>Fatliquor-5.0>Hydrator-3.3>Protector-S

Whilst it was drying, I was panicking as it still had that sheepy/vintage smell, but now the jacket is totally dry, it smells ok. The wool side smells lovely and floral (so maybe I dont need to use the wool cleaning process product I purchased, but I can still use these on another jacket I have so not gone to waste), and the suede side smells mostly neutral now it has totally dried.

Do you think a spray of my already purchased CleanOdor-4.5 is needed on the suede side? (Also I just realised the product page for this says to be used in conjunction with CleanProtein-9.9 and Acififier-2.0 - is that essential? Or should I scrap use of CleanOdor-4.5 altogther?)

Considering it has been through a wash, do I really need to clean the suede side again?

After washing, I notice some little dark 'spots' on the surface thast were not there before - any idea what this is? And if they will fade fat fatliquoring?

The nap looks a little 'bobbly' do you think I need to add SuedeEraser-5 to my order on pause?

Any advice would be very much appreciated!

Thank you
