We have used the blended Neatsfoot in our own extensive livery yard and never had a problem with dissolved stitching. For preserving leather, we could think of no better product.

We hope that this information helps

I've heard that Neat'sfoot rots threads, but cannot see how or why. I think that's an urban legend, like the "Ronsonol is good for shutters" one.
Just because it's a blend doesn't mean it's bad (depending on what it's blended with). I had some that I swear was blended with kerosene.
