Manufacturer FAQ Regarding Oil Finish Tin Cloth Products:
Is it normal for your blaze orange fabric to fade?
It is normal for our blaze orange fabric to fade under prolonged exposure to sunlight, or after repeated washing.
How does your blaze orange fabric compare to Tin Cloth in durability?
Frankly, blaze orange Ten Mile Cloth is not as tough as Tin Cloth. We've chosen to use Ten Mile Cloth because it is the most durable fabric that we can buy that holds the bright blaze orange color the longest. We are not able to dye natural fabrics like Tin Cloth so that they hold the blaze orange color.
How do I clean my Oil Finish Cloth garment?
Wipe or brush away surface soil or buildup with a damp cloth or scrub brush. If necessary, use cold water to loosen up any caked mud or dirt. (Some customers just hose 'em down at the end of the day.)
Do I need to re-wax my Oil Finish Cloth garment right away?
We advise against spot cleaning with soap and water, as it may result in a loss of water repellency or color in that spot. If it is absolutely necessary to spot clean an Oil Finish garment, you may need to re-wax that spot to restore the water repellency after it dries.
DO NOT professionally dry clean Oil Finish garments. Dry cleaning solutions destroy the Oil Finish, effectively turning Oil Finish fabrics into Dry Finish fabrics. If an Oil Finish garment is dry cleaned, it will need to be re-waxed to restore its water repellency.
DO NOT machine wash Oil Finish garments. Machine washing breaks down the Oil Finish, and sometimes causes the fabric to shrink. Most importantly, machine washing will not soften Oil Finish Cloth. In fact, it may make the fabric stiffer than before.
You shouldn't need to re-wax your Oil Finish Cloth garment right away. It is ready to wear.
What should I do if my Oil Finish Cloth item gets wet?
However, over time, and with regular use, the Oil Finish water repellency may weaken, especially in areas of high wear or repeated flexing. One can of Filson's Style 1-A Original Oil Finish Wax is enough to touch up isolated areas of high wear or flexing, but re-waxing an entire garment usually requires several cans of wax.
Cotton can shrink if it gets wet, especially when it's exposed to any kind of heat. Allow your Oil Finish Cloth product to dry naturally, away from any source of heat, to minimize shrinkage.
Do I need to order a one size up to allow for shrinkage?
Oil Finish Shelter Cloth is made of 100% cotton that has not been preshrunk, so shrinkage can occur, even if care is taken to avoid prolonged exposure to heat when wet. Most customers do not experience enough shrinkage to have a problem with the fit.
Any cotton garment is susceptible to shrinkage, which varies with use. For example, if your garment gets wet and then hot (drying out by a hot stove or in a car trunk, or when you work up a sweat wearing it on a hot day) shrinkage can occur.
Is your Oil Finish Tin Cloth waterproof?
While a small percentage of users experience shrinkage in their Oil Finish Shelter Cloth garments (usually due to getting them repeatedly wet and dry) most users do not experience enough shrinkage to create a problem with the fit. We recommend that you order your normal size unless you have previous experience with unusual shrinkage in our garments.
Our Oil Finish Shelter Cloth is not totally waterproof, but it is very water repellent, especially for a natural fabric like cotton. In a sustained downpour, the fabric will begin to absorb water, but you can expect to stay dry and comfortable for hours in the rain.
How breathable is Oil Finish Shelter Cloth?
Rubber and plastic raingear do not breathe at all, which means as you work or play in the rain, your body heat stays trapped inside the garment, eventually building up condensation that leaves you soggy and uncomfortable.
Why is my new Shelter Cloth item a different shade of tan than my last one?
We describe our Oil Finish Shelter Cloth as breathable, when compared to rubber or plastic raingear, because it offers superior water repellency, but at the same time will allow air to push through. However, Oil Finish Shelter Cloth is generally not as breathable as high-tech synthetic fabrics, such as those that use Gore-Tex breathable membranes.
Each dye lot accepts dyes to a different degree, depending on fiber variations, harvest time, and processing. We feel that the difference you are seeing is an acceptable color range for our Shelter Cloth.
