CARE FOR YOUR GREYCAR RAF SHEEPSKIN FLYING JACKET
For the inner wool surface – for small areas use a very dilute baby shampoo sparingly and allow to dry naturally. Once dry you can carefully tease out the wool with a pet comb.
For the outer leather surface – use a wax based leather food very sparingly and gently wipe over. Please note this will probably darken the colour of your jacket. Do not use a chemical/solvent leather cleaner or saddle soap.
General – do not dry clean. For a thorough, all over clean we recommend you go to a specialist sheepskin cleaner.
Storage – store out of direct sunlight and away from a heat source. Do not store in polythene, a cotton pillow case or similar is ideal.
