PELTS

SHOP IN STUDIO

Gotland sheep have been bred for centuries in Sweden as a dual purpose breed, having been brought to isle of Gotland by Viking seafarers. I am proud to offer a variety of American bred Gotland Sheep Pelts. Each is unique, and individual prices vary depending on size, staple length and weight. Prices range from $175 starting, up to $500. All are products of yearling lamb, in an way to honor the animal by ensuring that all parts are valued and used, as opposed to mass market produced pelts. Some are suitable for garment piece work, and all are luscious and make perfect gifts. Shop the only Authentic Gotland pelts available in Western New York. 
Garment Grade tanning work and machine washable for easy care.
We are currently sold out.
