Is this deerhide?

Hi guys! Its been a few months; my little sister got married and I made her gift which took up all my crafting mojo. But now that's done so I'm diving back into beading.

So I found this pretty sizable scrap at Goodwill of all places. It looks and feels "real," very soft and pliable, but I of course am not an expert so I was hoping someone on here with more experience in leather working could provide their input. Maec waewaenen (thank you.)

I'm no expert , but it looks like a cow hide split to me. It really doesn't matter ,if it's soft and pliable enough to bead.....use it !

Looks like a cowhide split to me too.

If so, it is not uncommon for one side to hold stitches better than the other. If you're doing lane stitch, or other technique where you don't go all the way through, you want to find that. Set a stitch on each side and yank. Your weak side is the one that tears out easiest.

I took a moc making class and the instructor used splits. The beadwork tore out of those splits during the turning.

I am not a native crafts expert, but my brother has lots of experience in leather crafts and equine related crafts and he says it is definitely split cowhide but that most people won't even know the difference. He says give it a go.
