Based on the instructions on this link.

I have processed the sheep skins today. Firstly scrapping off the flesh from the inside ( not much on my sheep). Then reining them, washing them on a wool cycle, then soaking them in a salt, alum, washing soda solution. They are now soaking in an out building for three weeks. Can’t wait to see if it works! I want to make a small hearth rug.
