Sheepskin Tanning Guidebook (Black & White Version)
In this guidebook, you will learn how to naturally fat tan your own hair-on sheepskin.
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.

ATTENTION: The photos of this book are all in black & white (see images). The original book contains colour photos. However, in one of the reprints, the books were printed in black & white by mistake, which are otherwise in perfect conditions. Due to the problem of the colours, I have decided to sell them with a big discount (limited to stock available).
