These Five Marys hand-tanned sheep pelts are a beautiful and cozy addition to any home. We love to use them on the back of a chair or couch, on an ottoman, in a nursery (babies sleep extra well on them!), in a stroller or wheelchair (they regulate body temp!) or on an office or dining room chair.
Our gorgeous Navajo Churro heritage sheep have such beautiful and unique pelts. They are saved after harvesting (where they would otherwise go to landfill) and we work hard to tan them all-naturally to honor the animal and use all of the parts after harvesting that we can. Our custom made sheepskin pelts are of the finest craftsmanship. We sort and clean them here on the ranch, then they travel to Oregon for salting and all-naturally tanning by a skilled craftsman.
They are hard for us to part with but we love seeing photos of them in our customers' homes! These pelts are supple and soft suede on the back side and incredible long lambs wool on the other. Each has an M5 brand on the back. They can be hand-washed and clean up easily - just don't use high heat or they turn to felt!
