Regular cleaning prevents leather from getting clogged up, dried out or cracked from exposure to the natural elements. Leather is skin, so the pores need to be kept clean and clear to maintain its suppleness.
Remove dirt build-up by wiping leather with a clean soft cloth. Apply a dime size portion of leather cleaner to a cloth. Wipe the surface in a gentle circular motion, allowing the leather to absorb the cleaner. Remove excess solution with a dry cloth.
That being said, thorough cleaning, as mentioned above, should be done infrequently. It's more important to brush and wipe down leather on occasion. We personally recommend using all-natural leather cleaning products
Conditioning your leather will prevent it from clogging, cracking, and scuffing over time– adding years to your product's life!
After cleaning your leather, its time to condition and moisturize. Apply a dime size portion of leather conditioner to a soft cloth, and massage it into the leather.

Alpaca Fiber can be cleaned with cold water and human hair shampoo. Use a soft-bristle brush to gently clean the textile, working the brush vertically along the warp threads of the textile.
Sheep Wool can be cleaned with warm water and human hair shampoo. Use a soft-bristle brush to gently clean the textile, working the brush vertically, along the warp of the textile.
Snow and Salt
Your first line of defense against the elements is a quick wipe-down with a damp cloth whenever exposure to water, snow or salt occurs. Keep your leather healthy with conditioner as needed.
We use leather soles for our footwear, and leather is a naturally porous material. Therefore, we caution you against using your handmade boots in heavy snow or rain.
Ensure that your leather boots or other products dry between wears, by storing them in a warm and dry place.
