It is the natural array of dark spots that gives leather from the spotted wolffish a bold, unique character. Wolffish leather is particularly smooth as the spotted wolffish does not have scales like the salmon or the perch.

The wolffish is a deep-sea species caught for food in the fishing grounds around Iceland. Wolffish leather hides are on average 65 cm long and 15-18 cm wide, with an average size of about 1.0 square feet. This fish leather can be dyed in any number of diverse tones. Black dots, the identifying feature of the spotted wolffish, will invariably show through except, of course, in black.
