Product Information

It is never advisable for an inexperienced person to try to tan valuable fur skins or large hides to be made into coats, robes, or rugs. The results would be disappointing, both in appearance and in quality. Small fur skins or skins of low market value, however, can be tanned by farmers and ranchmen to make serviceable leather for home or country use by carefully following the directions given in this booklet, originally published in the 1960s by the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture.
