The Australian sheepskins are soft and luxurious and the skin is clean and supple. The skins average around 7-10 square feet and are ideal for lining and car seat covers. Each sheepskin is shaped differently.
The 3/4" shearling is only available in brilliant white. Alum tanned skins are softer and has a parchment color back, and they are more appropriate for garments. The 1" shearling is currently available only in white. These are chrome tanned. Chrome tanned skins have a heavier, blue back and are better for dying and being around water. Chrome is more appropriate for heavy-duty stuff.
One skin measured 42" (107 cm) long and (77.5 cm) 30.5" wide down the middle and weighed 2.76 pounds (1.25 kg).
