Rawhide Kangaroo Skins - Bleached
Rawhide has always been the perfect medium for drum and lace making, braiding, saddle and tack applications, some Native American crafts, and of course we cannot forget home décor items, such as lampshades, etc. Kangaroo is well-known for its incredible tensile strength and long-lasting, rugged durability. This is a combination made in heaven, especially for lace makers and braiders! Perfect for braiding dog leads!!!
Now, don’t let the light weight, and stiff, thick paper like feel of these skins fool ya into thinking they’re weak… ‘cause you could be in for a big surprise!
Put it this way, if you were to wrap a wet strip of this rawhide around a can of soda, it will actually CRUSH the can as it dries! Hatbands anyone?
These bleached Rawhide Kangaroo Skins are approximately 1-2 oz. in weight and will vary between 6 to 9 square feet. But most will typically be large enough to allow you to cut a 50 cm diameter circle.
