Lamb leather is leather from a young sheep called a lamb, it’s smaller in size and finer in quality.

Lamb leather can be extremely thin, they have a velvety soft luxury feel to the touch, a great deal of fashion jackets is made from lambs leather, as well as gloves, skirts, trousers and waist coats.

Handbag designers use lambs leather due to its soft feel and fine grain structure and that velvety touch.

People do get easily confused with lambs skin and sheeps skin, they also become puzzled over calf leathers as well as aniline leathers as the public are not aware what the differences are. Clicking each highlighted name will give you more details on each type of leather. This should provide a much better understanding of the leather types for future reference.

Another form of leather that can be confusing is kid leather, that from a goat.

Most sheep skins are sold as wool on hides and they are much larger in size than lamb leathers, if the hide has no wool you can tell the difference by examining the grain structure of a lamb skin compared to a sheep skin leather hide. The sheep leather will not be as fine as the lamb leather, sheep leather has a bigger grain pattern to it.
