    Default 25 Years Old Shearling has Dried Out!

    This coat is about 25 years old and has dried out quite a bit.
    It used to be very dark, maybe because of the lanolin or other moisturizer.
    I'm hoping to moisturize and condition it again.
    What do you recommend?
    Thanks.

    >>> This coat is about 25 years old and has dried out quite a bit.

    Here is a product review of a 40-year-old shearling - Posted by Larry Bauman on 31st Jul 2017.

    "This product revived my 40-year-old Sheepskin coat that cracked at the touch of it after applying another company's 'Restoration' product.

    That other product ruined my coat, and I was about to throw it away but took a chance on the Leather Doctor.

    After applying Hydrater-3.3, I saw an immediate change.

    I then continued with the Fatliquor-5.0, and was shocked to see the change.

    My coat is now as soft and supple as it was when I purchased it in 1975!

    Don't even take a chance on valuable leathers with other companies' products, this one will amaze you with its results.".


    >>> It used to be very dark, maybe because of the lanolin or other moisturizer.

    The fat and oil moisture content evaporates as the shearling dries, and lightens it. Hydrator-3.3 with Fatliquor-5.0 rejuvenating system will bring back part of the lost color intensity.


    >>> I'm hoping to moisturize and condition it again.

    Read the instruction of the kit to clean and condition both sides of the shearling accordingly.
