U.S. Goatskins

Reject grade goat skins.  See the back of the hides with a ruler

We have decorative, hair-on goatskins from both Peru and the USA.  All sizes are usually in stock.  Please let us know if you have a preference for one style over another.  We will do our best to accommodate your needs. The hide side of the U.S. goatskins is softer than Peruvian goatskins. The U.S. goatskins have hair that is 2" or less and are heavier than the Peruvian ones. Some of the U.S. goatskins may have small holes near the bottom or at the edges of the back of the skin which would not be evident from the front.

The Reject grade skins are smaller skins or pieces with inconsistent hair lengths, bald spots, holes, stiff hides, or completely shorn of hair.  They are sorted into three different grades.  The #1 rejects are the best of the grade with hair on most of skin.  The #2 rejects are pieces with good hair or larger skins with some hair on the hide.  The #3 rejects are shorn.  See a video of the reject skins we have have in stock below.

Care Instructions for Your Goatskin

To remove any dirt, brush along the nap (in the direction of the hair, not backwards) using a bristle comb or horse brush.  To clean spills or extra dirty areas, use a very small amount of shampoo on a damp sponge.  Sponge along the nap repeatedly.  Rinse the sponge to remove the shampoo and dirt and repeat until the hide is cleaned.  Dry using a towel running along the nap.

We also offer a lanolin-based cleaner called Eucalan.  Click HERE for more information.
