Great for thin leathers and is very creamy and nice to use. I soak saddle string, lacing strings or braiding string in it for an hour or two or over night, squeegee it off between my fingers, let it cure for a couple days or just use it wet if pressed for time. It makes strong and beautiful strings. My favorite leather is a dry Indian tan latigo and soaked in Liquid Dubbin, it makes beautiful strings. It is a very versatile product and quite different from other Pappy’s Dubbin products. The Gallon size works the best for soaking string leather and other leather items just because there is room to get the leather in. The Gallon works the best for soaking strings and other things.
