Use this Greenland wax on any Fjallraven product made from G-1000 fabric, including jackets, trousers and packs, to bring back the water repellency that it had when it was new. Extra wax can be applied to areas where more water resistance is required, such as the knees and hems of trousers, although the wax may then become more visible.
This 25g bar is enough to top-up the proofing on a jacket or pair of trousers. A complete restoration of a neglected jacket will require most of a full size 100g bar.
Can be used on other items made from cotton or polyester and cotton mixed fibres even if they are not made by Fjallraven.
Greenland Wax is made from 65% Parrafin wax and 35% Beewax.

1. APPLY WAX
Take the block of Greenland Wax and rub it with long, smooth strokes against the fabric leaving behind a thin, even layer. You’ll want to apply some pressure when you do this, but not too much that your movement becomes jerky.
Using an iron (or a hairdryer) on low to moderate heat, melt the wax into the fabric. Again use long, even strokes. Greenland Wax melts at between 55°C and 60°C (131-140°F), so try to keep the iron temperature around this point – you don’t want the wax to get too runny. Don’t forget to wipe off the iron after use before ironing other garments.
This step isn’t always necessary, but if you want to make the fabric even more water resistant, repeat the process several times rather than applying a single, thick layer of wax. This is a good idea for exposed sections of the garment such as the hood and shoulders or the knees and rear.
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. Or if you’ve washed the jacket once, but it feels as though the wax has washed out. Iron (or use a hairdryer) 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.
REMOVING GREENLAND WAX
Sometimes wind and water resistance isn’t your number one priority. Sometimes you want your garments to allow for airflow, like when it’s warm and sunny. In this case, it’s a good idea to remove Greenland Wax. All you have to do is wash your garment at 40°C two or three times.
