Have a client who wants a raccoon tanned for a hat. He also has some goat skins to be tanned for garments (vests, etc.). He asked if there was a specific tan for this to avoid later problems with moisture, etc. Any advice appreciated. Jerry S.

Just make sure you use a good oil. Most oils specify their use. Read and choose the best one.
He is probably concerned about prespiration. It leaches out most tans if the garment is worn next to the user's skin. It can actually cause a rash. If you notice - most hats and fur coats usually have a lining for that reason! Chrome is the best tan for prespiration resistance. EZ-100 is good too! But it will not withstand boiling water like chrome will. Alum and Lutan F skins require a lining.
