    i recently tanned a wt cape with rinehart tanning cream . after tanning i put it in the freezer, i the n thawed it out and was going to put in ear liners. then noticed that patches of hair was just sliding off of the hide. have done several others the same way but never this problem.. unfortionatly the hide was lost. anyone have any ideas why this would happen?

    thanks Doug

    it is likely it wasnt handled well or properly before it got to you, i dont use tanning cream so i couldnt begin to say if it was anything to do with that, but it is probably as simple as not getting it to you and cooled quickly enough. Russ
