how long will a liqua tanned cape last if stored in the freezer? Also how long will a comercialy tanned and dried cape last and still be mountable? I have some extra capes and want to keep them as long as posible.

I had an extra cape in the freezer for two years. Mounted it with no problems.


YEARS

I have used COMMERCIALLY tanned capes that were over ten years old and they
were as good as a freshly tanned cape. They were kept frozen, and it doesn't
seem to make any difference if they are put in the freezer dry or rehydrated.
They are easier to move around if they are dry, however.
