Martyn, you could try Scuffmaster by Glipstones as one option. https://gliptoneeurope.com/

They do exact colour matches and I've used their products on a number of my cars and been very happy with the finish. They're very helpful on the phone too if you need a bit of advice on leather repair

Is the colour that needs attention (fading), or that creases are breaking up the colour. The treatments will need to be different.

I used products from Gliptone, same as used by Nobby, firstly a leather cleaner to clean the wheel, then a Neptune Blue dye to restore the steering wheel to its original colour. The process was simple, step by step using little application sponges which came with the dye.
