Sheep Skin - Jacob Lamb - large and dark
This pelt is from a Jacob lamb born 2010 on our farm. It is 36.5 inches long, measured on the center line and about 21 inches wide. the fleece is around 2-3 inches in length. It has a nice soft fleece with a springy feel to it.
Jacob pelts can be decorative or used for various other things. I like the shorter pelts as car seat covers, they could be used as rugs, throws or for babies to rest on or as pads for wheel chair seats. This pelt could also be cut and made into crafts or clothing.
This one has very few defects or holes, although there is a pattern of small holes in the skin made by the tanner. It was tanned by Buck's County Fur in Pennsylvania and is made to be washable, but can be dry cleaned if desired. Water washing per the instructions from Bucks county tends to make the skin hard and it takes time to get the skin back to it's supple texture, but it can be done with manual working and stretching.
We raise our animals on our small family farm. The sheep have access to pasture most of the time and are only fed grain and hay in extreme weather.
