Do you have to rehydrate before a cape goes into the pickle? It seems to me that it would rehydrate in the pickle. If i'm wrong (it woulden't be the first time) please explain why you must rehydrate before the pickle. Thanks for your time.

I definitely would rehydrate fully before pickling. After its in the pickle, it wont get any softer, since the pickle will firm it up and plump it slightly. If it cant get into the tissues to do this, the skin will remain flat and be difficult to shave.
