A friend from Scandinavia has kindly brought me over a reindeer hide but unfortunately it has not been treated yet. I want to use it indoors as a rug but at the moment a. it's kind of stinky! and b. it is hard and crinkly.
Any advice on how I can treat it to make it all soft and non-stinky like the ones I see in the shops! I live in the UK and they are real funny about furs and skins here so can't get a lot of help!
