Winter pelts are usually the softest and fullest.
Pelts can be used for wall hangings, crafts, rugs, clothing, and soft
cushions for hard chairs. You could also take pieces from different colored pelts and sew them together into patterns.
Tanning the hides yourself can be labor intensive but is less expensive than having professionally tanned; however, the softness professional taxidermists can achieve may make choosing the more expensive option worthwhile.

ALL pelts pictured below were professionally tanned – a choice made by the owners of the sheep.
