Sending fur to the tannery

I see it says "Taxadermy" or "Dressed" for tanning hides.

My question is whats the difference of the two?

Thanks

You want "Dressed". That is the soft, supple tan used for clothing.
Taxidermy tanned is much more stiff and coarse.

Moyles is the best I have found.......

Taxidermy tan is actually pretty supple, but they are more careful with the face, lips, feet,etc. Much more expensive to have them do it that way, so if all you want is garment tan...

Has anyone sent fur to Yost Tannery in WI? They have done a good job with my deer skins (hair off) but Ive never sent them fur.
