We're pleased as punch to be able to offer this 13oz waxed cotton – a totally waterproof material that doesn't use any plastic to work its magic! Made by treating cotton with a mix of waxes, its Tex Wax finish makes it flexible at cold temperatures and resistant to wax transfer while staying waterproof. Crisp and structured, this cotton is ideal for a wide range of workwear and non-garment uses: lined jackets, bags, rain ponchos, hats, dog beds, etc. If it's hard-wearing and needs to be waterproof, odds are our waxed cotton will work for it! Fully opaque, it does not need to be lined; however, you may want to opt for a lining for comfort's sake.

If you haven't used waxed cotton before, it's important to note that it has a few special care requirements. Waxed cotton tends to develop lines and creases as it ages, which makes for a beautiful patina. You may find your yardage arrives with lines formed where it was folded. You can remove these lines with a steamer or hairdryer. You can also use an iron on the lowest setting with steam and a pressing cloth.

Waxed cotton should never be placed in the washing machine or dryer. Any stains should be spot-cleaned with saddle soap or similar. After sewing this cotton, you may want to wipe down the bed of your machine with a damp cloth; using a Teflon foot may make sewing smoother.

Textiles Made From Natural Fibres

In the fashion industry, deadstock refers to fabrics that are either surplus or left over from production, including high-quality designer textiles. By sourcing deadstock fabrics, we are giving them a new lease on life and keeping them out of landfills.

Care Instructions


Never wash your waxed fabric, as this will strip away the coating and eliminate its waterproof qualities. Any stains should be spot-cleaned with saddle soap or similar. Smooth out visible lines with a hairdryer. The warmth will melt the coating just enough to redistribute it across the surface of your fabric. You can iron on a low setting with steam and a press cloth.

Long-Term Care

Waxed cotton should never be placed in the dryer. Any stains can be removed with saddle soap or a similar product.

Fabric Tips

Additionally, your fabric may require re-waxing seasonally, depending on use. If you notice your finished garment losing its water resistant properties, it’s time to get some refinishing wax.
