Sheepskin UK – The process
UK Sheepskin is a bi product of the meat industry. In the UK every year about 14 million sheep and lambs are killed for meat. The raw ‘wet’ skins are taken to a tannery where they are salted for preservation. After many stages of cleaning, washing and drying the sheepskins are combed for finishing. The whole completed sheepskins are graded and sold whole to British retailers like SnugRugs Ltd.
