Description

I tan hides by hand using natural, heritage methods. My sheepskins are chrome and chromium free. I brain tan with a natural brain substitute (think Fox Fire). The sheep leather is soft and supple, hand-stretched, smoked, and oiled.

THIS is a winter coat hair-on prime sheepskin from a big Katahdin yearling ram. It's large and really beautiful. The colors are varied on this one - shades of red, brown, and orange give way to soft grey fluffy wool. The hair at the neck line is over 6 inches long and comprised the beautiful "beard" of the sheep.
I won't always be so lucky as to get skins at just the right time and condition for tanning - these perfect winter pelts are rare!

Measurements: A Large hide at 44 inches (3' 8") by 24 inches (2').
Hair length is 2"-3" throughout and 4+" in places.

This sheepskin would make a stunning throw blanket, a warm addition to bedding in the chilly months, a soft rug to sink your toes into, a mat for a baby, or for cosplay at your next GOT party... Real hair/fur and leather pieces look great in the home when styled with cottage, rural, shabby chic, boho, and industrial themes - you pretty much can't go wrong. We use sheepskins and other fur hides for bedding! This one in particular has been a great chair cover for me lately, and as inspired by a customer I have been using my sheepskins for yoga mats as well!

Care Instructions:
This sheepskin is washable. I recommend just spot cleaning, hand washing, or only using the washing machine on delicate. Wash judiciously - leather doesn't appreciate it much.
Do NOT machine dry. Lay flat to dry. Stretch by hand if air-drying creates wrinkles. The leather can be oiled as often as you like. The hair can also be washed with dry shampoo, pet shampoo, or simply dusted with baking soda, brushed out, and "beaten" (like a rug).
