Our skins can be washed in a washing machine at 30° wool wash or wash it by hand. Use only washing detergent for wool or silk.
Hang the skin to drip dry over a chair or on the clothesline, stretching and massaging it during drying, so the skin retains shape and flexibility.
We appraise the quality of each skin taking into account such parameters as size, colour, curl definition, gloss, symmetry, holes and stitching and our prices are based on the combined scores on each of these parameters.
This score or rating is based on the purity of the breed and the desire to breed the most perfect Gotland skins, according to current standards in the Gotland skins industry.
