Following from showcasing our collection at Outdoor Retailer earlier this year, our Wax C4X was a particular favourite, read about it:

Halley Stevensons, the Dundee, Scotland maker of waxed cotton fabrics, showcased its Wax C4X line of fabrics for apparel and luggage. The company works closely with the brands on the development of its innovative waxes, which are a by-product of oil production, and include waxes made of mineral oils, petroleum jellies, and paraffin waxes. Wax C4X is the exciting next generation of performance waxes. The Wax finish has many benefits over traditional waxed cotton fabrics, including four times higher water proofing characteristics compared to traditional waxed fabrics. This “no PFC” wax has excellent water shedding properties, outperforming traditional wax in shower rating, hydrostatic head and Bundesmann testing. Wax C4X has superior durability to abrasion and weathering, and adds extra strength to the base cotton. It acts as a protective layer to the garment, making this the perfect choice for performance.  Unlike traditional wax cotton, at ambient temperature, Wax C4X does not transfer or migrate onto other fabrics, leathers and linings. The wax is also virtually odorless. While most waxes have a jelly-like consistency at room temperature, Wax C4X is a flexible solid. Garments made using Wax C4X cotton also resist dirt and other contaminants.
