    I have a customer that brought me a tanned sheep skin to clean
    What is the best way to clean it and keep it soft?
    Not sure who tanned it

    Thanks

    Carl I clean all my hides with woolite rug cleaner and as far as softness, that can be tricky. If it's hard now it maybe from not tumbled right, oiled got wet and some heat got to it. Try hydrating a small spot, oil it and try breaking it. be careful for it can fall apart!
