Snowshoe hare are different from domesticated rabbit: the skin is thinner and the hair is wilder with longer guard hairs. These hare are in the winter phase and tend to be whitish.
The #1 skins have few if any imperfections. These skins are approximately 12" to
16" long by 6.5" wide.
The #2 hare skins have small nicks, holes, tears, or cuts on the hide side that typically cannot be seen from the hair side. These imperfections can be sewn up--we just don't have time for this. These cased hare skins are approximately 16" long by 7" wide and weigh 0.22 pounds. They are good for craft projects.
