These are from baby animals that are born dead. Farmers don’t like to leave these dead animals in their paddocks and it is a loss of income for them, so I come and take the skins. These ‘slinkskins’ have been used by many clothing manufacturers to make high end gloves, clothing, and bags. Many animal rights groups tell you that sheep are killed to collect the unborn babies. This is not true and I wish this myth would die. The ewes are worth much more than one tiny skin, even if that skin used to be worth a lot in the past.
