Having a go at curing a sheep skin - Part 1

2014-04-09-22.10.02.jpg

I got a fresh sheep skin off Peter this evening and I'm going to try and turn it into a rug. I've seen a video that Sandra Rowe posted on YouTube on curing skins and thought I'd give it a try.

Until I gather all the ingredients I can keep it for a week or so by rubbing some table salt into the skin.

The dogs are going mad for it, even Luc the cat has been having a nosy around...
I will post some more when I get to the next stage.
