Measuring SheepskinsUpdated 9 months ago

We measure our individual sheepskins on the HIDE SIDE and not on the fur side. This means our sheepskins often come up larger than expected.

Standard convention for measuring sheepskin hides is to measure the length diagonally from top to bottom at the longest point, and the width at the widest point at the centre of the skin.

British Sheepskins Fur Length extends 5-10cm around all sides

Icelandic Sheepskin Fur Length extends 10-15cm around all sides

Icelandic Shorn 50mm Sheepskin Fur Length extends 5cm around all sides
