First time poster here. I have been through the archives and used about 8 different searches, and just can't seem to find the answer I'm looking for. I have a flat Llama hide (mostly white) that was tanned about 10 years ago. It was a farm pet and when it died we skinned it and sent it to our taxidermist who then sent it to a tannery. We have no idea which tannery, or what method was used. We use the hide as a"chair throw" and over the years the hair has gotten pretty dirty. It is not very "soft" on the leather side, and the neck area is really stiff since the leather in that area is very thick. My question is... Can we use a low PH horse shampoo and wash the thing? If we can, will it get even stiffer when it dries back out? Can we "break" it some during the drying process in order to make it softer than it is? Do we need to re-oil it after washing? We just want to clean the fur/hair.
