To keep your Hollow Bone hide in prime condition, we recommend regularly airing it out by gently shaking and if needed, brushing. Keep the hide out of direct sun for prolonged periods of time as this may dry the leather out.
The lanolin found on sheep's wool has natural anti-fungal and antibacterial properties, so with careful maintenance, your hide should last a lifetime. If needed, your Hollow Bone hide may be spot washed using organic soap*. This is not recommended to do regularly because it is a leather product.
To spot clean, carefully dampen the wool side (not the skin), add a very little bit of organic soap, brush through, and then dab lightly with a wet cloth to remove most of the soap.
Lightly shake and hang to dry in a warm place, gently stretching the area as it dries.
If the leather/skin of your hide happens to become wet for any reason, please make sure it dries out before it has a chance to mold.
With proper care and tending your investment will last a lifetime!
*These instructions are for Hollow Bone hides only. If you have a hide from another source, especially if you don't know how it was tanned, you may want to avoid washing it.
