Are you looking for sheep skins with the hide on, or fleeces so you can spin/weave the wool? I do have some sheep skins with the hide tanned if that's what you're looking for. Jan in CO

Just seeing your home page gave me warm and fuzzies! Your Pyr pup is gorgeous!
I love the brown. I think it would be to long for the baby to lay on but maybe it would be great for a blanket like when we go out.
I will keep your info for later. I need to get the bed pad ones first. It gets realy cold and we only have electric heat so when the power goes out I dont want to have to worry about the new babe or my little tyke freezing.

Yep, thats what Im looking for. I can get them on Ebay but I got to talking to DH and well, its better to go to the individual and the money be spent there rather that some no face who ever. When I raise something it is wonderful to reap the rewards. I would always rather get from the farmer than the grocers. KWIM?

I'll try to get some pictures of the ones I have and post them this weekend. Not sure what they are even worth, as I bought them at an auction with the intent of making a rug or something from them. I'll dig them out and see what they look like. Jan in Co

I didn't get the pictures taken this weekend, had shooting sports for the granddaughter, had to finish a pen for a lost/found calf, etc. Will try to get them done today sometime. Jan

I have Shetland pelts for sale in black, morit, grey (silver). Will have more colors next Spring. Also waiting for a black blue-faced leister pelt to return. I few white texel type lamb pelts as well.

I use Stern Tanning. They claim the pelts are machine washable.

Email me at [email protected] for details. I will try to PM with prices tonight.
