What is Otter Wax & How Is It Used? Friday, January 13 2023

Otter Wax fabric wax is a blend of beeswax and other natural waxes and oils that can be used to waterproof organic cotton, linen, and hemp fabrics. Waterproofing with this natural wax blend provides a functional alternative to nylon for creating your own amazing waterproof outerwear.

Use the Otter Wax on Organic Cotton Duck for a heavy duty outer layer, or try applying it to Organic Cotton Twill for a medium weight layer.  Try it on a lightweight fabric, such as Organic Cotton Sateen or Percale for an alternative to nylon for a lightweight outer layer.
