Waxed cotton Explained

We use Traditional English Waxed Cotton.

The wax cotton fabric is waterproof but wherever the fabric is stitched there is a possibility it will allow water in. If you find that there is a leak in your skirt you can easily touch up the area with the wax dressing provided.

How to re-wax using waxed cotton dressing

  • Using a damp sponge clean of any excess dirt from the waxed cotton.
  • Place your tin of wax cotton dressing in hot water to soften it.
  • Apply thinly with a clean cloth to you waxed cotton.
  • Paying extra attention to seams, pocket edges and any particularly worn areas.

Regular reproofing will help maintain the waxed cotton and prolong its life. You can use other re-waxing products as long as they are designed for, Wax cotton garments.

The best way to store you skirt, is to hang it up using the hanger at the back of the skirt. This will allow it to dry out and reduce the risk of it staying damp and mould forming.

  1. Nicky

    This is one of the best things I’ve ever bought. I can’t tell you how many times it’s kept me warm and dry while riding.
    It’s perfectly designed and hardly moves even when I’m show jumping- yes even when jumping up to 1.50m jumps! Unbelievable!
    It’s beautifully made, the quality is amazing and will last forever.
    I’m a very happy customer.

    My Moorlands skirt is probably one of the best things I have EVER bought; I absolutely love it! 🥰
    I wear it to walk the dog, for walks on the beach, throw it on over my work clothes to keep them clean whilst checking my horse (so much easier to put on/off than waterproof trousers/overalls!!), I’ve worn it wandering round town on a rainy day, doing my poo picking/yard chores, I wear it all the time – oh, & I ride in it too! 😆
    It’s warm, waterproof and so stylish too; I’ve lost count of the compliments I’ve received whilst wearing it & am always being asked where I bought it. And the quality is amazing – worth every penny. 🙂

    My skirt is an essential bit of kit for me now. When it’s cold and wet, I wear it around the yard as well as riding. Being cold can really put me off riding and having my cosy skirt is making the world of difference! Odette is brilliant to deal with and provided a fantastic customer service- you can tell she really cares about the process of making the skirts 🙂. I recommend mine to anyone who will listen
