Description of terms used:
Dimensions - are approximate and were measured at the longest/widest points.
Lock (Staple) Length - is an average of wool lock measurements taken throughout the pelt.

Naturally Tanned Sheepskins
The eight sheepskins shown below were tanned at Driftless Traditional Tannery, a small women owned Tannery in
Wisconsin which uses a traditional, natural and chemical-free method to tan hides. The wool on most of these hides has not
been combed so they still exhibit the natural locks. The leather back is cream to tan colored and sturdy, yet flexible.
Sheepskins may be cleaned by vacuuming and shaking. The wool can be spot washed but the leather should
NEVER be immersed in water.

Additional information about the tanning process and care from D
riftless Tradidional Tannery:
Each hide is hand worked and will retain its natural character
. While in process, the hides are washed many times with a wool specific,
eco-friendly detergent, and we do not use bleach or harsh chemicals to clean them. Depending on the breed, the fiber may retain
some of the natural lanolin and white wool may have a yellowish tint.

                           Navajo-Churro Sheepskins
Navajo-Churro wool comes in a wide range of natural colors (for a list of Navajo-Churro colors & patterns click here), is classified as coarse and is composed of three distinct types of fiber: 1) Inner Coat: wool fibers ranging from 10-35 microns, comprising 80% of the fleece, 2) Outer Coat: hair fibers measuring 35+ microns, comprising 10-20% of the fleece, 3) Kemp: short opaque fibers of 65+ microns, not to exceed 5% of the fleece. The fleece is open with no defined crimp and should be lustrous with a silky hand. Navajo-Churro sheep can grow 8" to 12" inches of wool a year (up to 1" per month).  We shear our Churros twice a year so staple lengths on our pelts range from 2" to 7".
