Sheep skin rugs #5

Sheep skin rugs are progressing.  After the pickling, neutralizing and tanning, they got oiled.  Then were set out to dry.  Bad luck, it rained, but we got them in before they got to wet.  Then they were nailed to the inside of the barn to dry more.  Now R is working to comb and clip them.  Long process.  Next will be breaking the hide, stretching and oiling.
