Q: I'm interested in importing long hair skins of sheep or goats to America. Can you help with a supplier?

A: The Tannery Visitor Centre (Gestastofa Sútarans) in Sauðárkrókur, North Iceland, is a store adjacent to a tannery where sheepskins are sold. The store’s website,, provides more information. If you purchase 15 sheepskins or less, you can order from them.

If, on the other hand, you plan to purchase more than 15 sheepskins, you can go through the wholesaler Atlantic Leather. Just send them an email: [email protected]. Their website is where you will find useful information.
