Skin is a tissue layer common to most creatures. Different types of creatures have different types of skin.
- Most mundane creatures have raw hide, which displays in-game as skin. This is the only type that can be tanned into leather.
- Insectoids creatures have Chitin.
- Reptilian creatures and fish generally have Scales.
All skin types are stored in a refuse stockpile (both fresh and rotten).
Raw skin, Chitin and Scales can be processed at a Tanner by a dwarf with the Tanning labor enabled in order to produce Leather, Chitin and Scale respectivly. If skins are not tanned automatically, try using your manager to manually queue "Tan a Hide" jobs.
