For best results it is preferred that sheepskins for tanning have wool no longer than 5cm ,and are from a coarse wool or crossbreed species of sheep. If the fleece is longer than this it can tend to knot up during processing. Also if there are debris such as seed heads, twigs etc in the wool they most likely will still be there at the end!!

The time taken to process you skin through the factory varies depending on workload, but as a guideline it takes 4-5 weeks for everything apart from cow hides which take 8 weeks.

All prices include GST.
