We think G-1000 is the best material for the outdoors. It's naturally tough, lightweight and wind resistant. But by adding Greenland Wax, you can make the fabric even more durable and water resistant and by removing it, you can make it lighter and airier.
Read our quick tips for maintaining your G-1000 garment just the way you like it. Or read further for our step-by-step guide below.
1. Reactivating Greenland Wax
Sometimes you just want to reactivate the Greenland Wax already on the garment, like if that winter jacket has been hanging in storage all summer. Iron the garment on a low heat. The heat will draw the wax out of the fabric and you should be able to feel the difference straight away.
2. Removing Greenland Wax
Sometimes wind and water resistance isn’t your number one priority - during warmer months you may want your garments soft, light and breathable. All you have to do to remove Greenland wax is to wash your garment at 40°C two or three times.
3. What Not to Wax
Many of our products are made from a combination of G-1000 and other materials, such as our Keb Jacket, with stretch panels. It is only G-1000 that can be waxed. So take extra care when waxing these types of garments to avoid getting wax on non-G-1000 materials.
