What is the difference between a reindeer skin treated with silicone and an untreated one?
Traditionally dried reindeer skin is stretched and hung inside out on a wall without any added substances. This is the traditional way of the native Sámi to dry reindeer skins, and it’s a method that’s still commonly used up here in the north. Dried this way, she skins are a bit rougher and harder to roll up. They also have stronger smell and shed hair more easily than skins treated with silicone. Silicone treated skins are suppler, have a milder smell and are less prone to shedding. You could compare the smell of a silicone treated reindeer skin to smelling as much of reindeer as sheepskin smells of sheep, which is to say not very much.
