I have had several roe skins tanned at the old Moorlands Factory in Bridgewater and they came out very well. Today I picked up 6 roe skins and 4 of them have got bald patches which have really spoilt what were otherwise perfect skins(they were all head/neck shot and had unblemished, intact skins)
The skins were salted straight after skinning and then drained off , re salted and went down to them within a few days. They looked excellent when they were delivered.
Today I dropded of two more roe doe skins, both of which were treated as above and we closely looked at them, they are dry and look OK but they were still sheading hair at this stage.
The factory dont know what the problem could be and my concern at £25 each to tan it is a waste of money if they are not going to turn out well.
Has anybody had same problems or knows of a cure?
