What is Oilskin? Oilskin is cotton fabric painted with oil. It is extremely durable, waterproof, wind resistant and flexible. It is the best dog coat material because it flexes and moves with the dog allowing your dog to curl up into an indoor bed or kennel. Oilskin is dark brown / black in colour. It is not uncommon to come across 10 year old Fair Dinkum Dog Coats still in use because of the quality of fabric used.
Coats are hand washable and can be re oiled using Joseph Lyddy – Dry Proof every 2 – 3 washes. Most customers find a vacuum of the inner lining and an airing is all that's needed to freshen the coat up in most cases.
