Tan your own – Sheep no 24

$45.00

This is a long wool sheepskin that has been salt dried. I haven’t been happy with the alum preserved skins so have moved to salt drying instead. I find it easier for customers to rehydrate. It has been fleshed, dried, and is ready for you to tan it in any way you like – bark tan, chrome tan, synthetic tan, eg tan, whatever you like.

Usually long wool skins are too stained to work with, but I was happy to see this one which is as clean as you can find in a long wool skin. If there is any staining left after you wash it, you could easily tip dye the wool to hide it. The red oil paint will come out in the washing.

This one is pretty dirty, but should mostly wash out, and you will probably be dying it also. It will become a lot whiter with the detergent in your rehydrating water.

Sheepskins are generally easy to tan at home and get a good result.. All you have to do when you receive the skin is to soak it for a few hours or so til it’s soft and rehydrated, pickle (optional), tan it, oil, and trim.

If you need tanning instructions please let me know.

NOTE, as long as it’s kept in a dry place this skin will keep in good condition for months or even a year or more. If exposed to moisture, even humid air conditions it can be destroyed (this does not apply to soaking before tanning, just to extended periods of air moisture).

There is a slightly higher cost for this skin as it is bulky to post.
