Terra || Handtanned Sheepskin
Terra (Earth in portuguese) is a beautiful, white lambskin with a lovely brown spot on the neck, approximately 89x62cm. She’s a very soft sheepskin with mostly short wavy hair. All my sheepskins are handtanned by me, with only natural fats and a lot of physical work. You can learn more about the process here.
All my sheepskins are washed and brushed, and vegetable matter is removed as much as possible. Nevertheless, it is always possible to find a twig or a grass seed stuck in the wool. All sheepskins go also through a smoking stage, which helps preserve the skin. Some areas of the bottom edge of this sheepskin have a light golden tint where the smoke escaped and dyed the wool, giving her even more personality. This skin came with a cut that I closed by hand (as seen in picture; the price reflects this).
This sheepskin is perfect to be used as a rug, a baby or camping mat, or just as decoration on a chair or sofa. Also beautiful for living history or ritual!
