Elk Cape Measurements

Submitted by jim on 1/13/01. ( )

Just got a tanned elk cape from a commercial tannery.

dry measurement on neck is 20" and about a 10 1/2" for eye to nose.

Is there any way to figure a safe stretch measurement without rehydrating?

If rehydrating is a neccesity can I place it in the freezer wet for any length of time?

You wouldn't buy shoes without trying them on and you can't mount any tanned leather without rehydrating them for measurements. Rehydrate, measure, and toss it in the freezer till the correct form arrives.
