Cool. Amra mentioned something about making a cape from sheepskin so the slightly blemished look would be perfect for that. I'm thinking along the lines of a sheepskin vest like Conan did with the dog skin in the first film. That would be cool, oh and warm too :D

I've come across a few Saxon costumes similar, but the asking prices are just too much.
I was thinking of like a cloak to go over the shoulders mainly and hang down to just below the waist.
Also thinking of using some for future scabbards, similar to the variations of Conan's scabbards in the Barbarian movie.
They've been reproduced, just at insane prices.

A black one would be great.
