Pelts for sale

Seems I have a bit of catching up to do blog-wise, but I did want to share that we now have some beautiful Icelandic sheepskin pelts for sale on our farm website, here.

These were professionally tanned using a method that produces a pelt that does not require dry-cleaning. They can simply be washed in water with mild soap, or even shampoo, and washing instructions will be included. These pelts are very soft and supple, due to the lower number of wool follicles per square inch in this breed as compared with some other breeds. They can be used in many ways, including for rugs, chair or sofa throws, cushions, wall hangings, crafts, to keep your car seat warmer in the winter and many other uses.

Here is one example, just to tempt you to take a look at the full listing. :-) A 12-inch ruler was laid on the pelt for scale.

I don’t know what all the technical jumbo means but it looks like it would keep my tushy warm in the winter:-)
