Cedarwood – Full Moose Leather these are the very last hides for the year: We decided to do them into Cedarwood because it is quickly becoming our favourite colour. This tanning season we were playing with new colours and came up with Cedarwood. We freaked when we first saw this colour out of the dye lot, we were not sure what to call it….but taking pictures on the cedar shingles on our house we realized that ‘Cedarwood’ was the perfect description. Very traditional, natural colour with amazing tones running from tan to rust. Alive with character and each piece quite unique on the smooth side while the suede side is a perfect even rust tone. The leather is extra special soft and the quality of the leather is 100%. (these moose were legally hunted and I guarantee that they were eaten). These hide are generally quite amazing, they are wild moose hides and moose live rough lives. There are only limited holes and scraps.
Moose Leather 3 1/2 ounce is the PERFECT leather for moccasin and mitt making. Easily sewn by hand, this leather is smooth one side and suede the other. Extremely soft and supple but will make a pair of moccs that will last for years. We gather our hides from local hunters who are feeding their families but don’t need the hides. Our 3 1/2 is by far our most popular leather as it is so amazing for so many projects.
