We're fortunate to be able to take our hides just 20 miles down the road from our southern Wisconsin farm for processing. The Driftless Tannery hand works each hide, and uses a natural process with no bleach and no harsh chemicals.
Unless otherwise noted, the sheepskin was not dry brushed at the end of this process, thus preserving the beautiful open lock structure.
Pelts are hand/spot washable. Cleaning and storage instructions will be included. Note: As of summer 2023, the Tannery has transitioned to bark tanning hides, a more environmentally friendly method. This is more labor intensive, and our processing fees have increased a bit. Bark tanned hides (Nos. 6, 8) are machine washable when necessary. As the Tannery notes, "Wool is remarkably resilient and naturally stain resistant. Most dirt and debris can be easily removed from the fiber with a good brushing, or shaking it outside like you would a small area rug."
