These rabbit skins are dyed in Spain using a mix of first and second grade (or what we call our Better grade) skins. For years we have called these craft grade skins because we originally bought a third grade skin. However, the tannery has only offered first and second grade dyed skins and we are dropping the "craft" name for these skins. They tend to be quite nice and are suitable for selling as a novelty item or for use in making items. Overall, they are great value for the money!
These rabbit skins are chrome tanned.
Please note that the dyed rabbits do have a
chemical odor as a result of being dyed. They may also have a mothball
odor as well because we have to prevent bugs from getting into the skins.
You can reduce this odor by either airing them out or by tumbling the skins
in a dryer with a dryer sheet on very low heat for no more than five
minutes. Any more than this will shrink the rabbit skins and you will no
longer have the option to return them if unsatisfied. If you're
worried that the rabbits skins may leave an odor in your dryer, we suggest
you use a public laundromat.
