Chamois - Woodworking
Original chamois came from the skin of a mountain antelope (the chamois). As the antelope are now protected, the best chamois sold is made from split sheepskin and tanned by a process involving the oxidation of marine oils in the skin. Our sheepskin chamois is tanned with 100% cod oil, acknowledged as the best marine oil for this purpose.

The softness and super absorbency of chamois made it popular for car washing. Long before cars existed, chamois was used for "leathering" wood, a cleaning process to remove wood dust or paint dust after sanding. Unlike many treated tack cloths, chamois cleans surfaces well and leaves no trace contaminants that can interfere with finishes.

There are two to a pack (each measuring 26cm x 37cm) giving you 2 sq.ft. of leather in total.
