Genuine Tanned Shropshire Sheep Pelts
Please note that exact size and color will vary. Each hide is from an individual animal and possesses unique characteristics. The color is undyed and all natural. Colors will range from white to creamy ivory with hints of tan. There may also be slight variations in the hide texture and color within the same fleece. Occasionally there may be a small hole or blemish in the leather side of the pelt due to the hand skinning process. This is only a cosmetic flaw to the underside (leather side) of the pelt and will not be visible to the fleece side. All our fleeces are very, very soft. Sheep pelts are available in limited quantities. The tanning process takes over 6 months. Once our hides are sold out for the year, they will not be available again until approx. 6 months after the lamb harvest (which is usually mid May-June). The average size of lamb pelts is 42" x 30".
Ounce for ounce, sheepskin is stronger than steel. Sheepskins will last for years with minimal care: only brushing, shaking out, or vacuuming is required.
