HIDES由EMOVING HAIR悠 would like to have you tell me how to make clothing of cowhide. t desire especially to know how to remove the hair.
I have never heard of using leather made of cowhide for clothing, other than footwear. Anyway, we could not answer such a question. To remove the hair from a cowhide, make a solution of s quarts of slacked lime and it gallons of soft water, then stir in 9 quarts of hardwood ashes. Stir this liquid thoroughly and immerse the skins and let them soak three hours, and then hang them over the tub a few minutes to drain off. Do this four times the first day, three times the second, and once a day afterwards, until the hair starts on the thickest part, then rinse in clean water and scrape off the hair. .
