There’s been entirely too much news about fires on the blog this month – the fire at the solvent factory, the neighbor’s old house, andÂ we just received a letter from our tannery (Stern Tanning in Sheboygan Falls,Â WI) Â that their workspace burned down and our hides were lost. We had five hides in process. It sounds like they might be back by the end of the year. This got us looking for other places to tan our sheepskins and we really didn’t find too many. The best link we found was this one that lists 4 tanneries a bit down the page. So, we’ll try again – we really do like the finished wooly hides.
