How to Care for a Lambskin Leather Jacket

Lambskin is a particularly soft type of leather, made from the skin of a young sheep. A variety of items are made from this leather, including gloves and baby blankets, as well as fine leather jackets. If you've bought a lambskin jacket, you're probably wondering how to keep it looking good. Leather goods require proper care and maintenance to keep them supple and comfortable, and to prevent excess wear and tear. With regular cleaning and conditioning, you can keep your lambskin jacket looking great for years to come.

Instructions

    • 1

      Dust off your lambskin jacket with a damp cloth or paper towel to remove surface dirt and dust.

    • 2

      Scrub dirty spots clean with a leather cleaner and a terry cloth towel or exfoliating glove. Allow the cleaner to rest on the leather for a few minutes, then wipe it off with a damp cloth.

    • 3

      Apply a light coat of conditioner to your lambskin jacket at least two or three times per year. In dry climates, or if you wear the jacket frequently, you may want to condition it more often. Mink oil or commercial leather conditioners will add moisture and keep your jacket from drying out, cracking and stiffening.

    • 4

      Spray on a water repellent if you're concerned about protecting your lambskin jacket from rain damage.

Tips & Warnings

  • Test any cleaning or conditioning products in an inconspicuous place first to make sure they don't stain or discolor your jacket.
