You will learn how to use natural fats (e.g. eggs, olive oil), smoke, a few hand tools and a lot of elbow grease to transform a raw skin into a beautiful pelt that can be used in various leathercraft projects (including making super warm clothing!).

The book covers the full fat tanning process from start to finish.

Some of the topics covered are:

  • how to find sheepskins for tanning
  • how to flesh a sheepskin
  • how to make your own homemade tanning solution
  • how to soften the hide both by hand and with a frame
  • how to smoke the skin

It is especially helpful to beginners starting their own tanning journey or people looking for information particular to sheepskin tanning.
