You'd be better off emailing Wested directly to ask them what the Shrunken Lamb they have in is like at the moment.

I agree with Major West on this; the shrunken lamb can vary significantly so its a good idea to contact Wested directly, tell them what you`re looking for. They`re usually really helpful, and may even send you a photo of their current batch.
That said, if I were to go for a Hero I`d seriously consider Wested`s new Goatskin. While its a little too dark to be completely SA, I`d say its closer than the chestnut/ginger colour that the shrunken lamb can be, and in terms of weight, texture and drape its very similar to shrunken lamb. If you go to the previous page of this thread Ive posted a couple of pics of my OTR Raiders in goat. See what you think.

All I did to the jacket was put it in the shower for a couple of minutes using warm water. It dried darker than the original color in most place. Of course, the sleeve wrinkles was from wearing it damp.

It dried darker? I might soak mine again then. I quite like it. Wested don't seem to be doing heavy duty predistressed lamb any more.

I had ordered the SL which they had offered in my size. They came back that it was only for smaller jackets and changed the web listing. I asked about 4 leathers other than the SL and one was the pre-distressed heavy lamb which they had in stock.

It really is most impressive. I wonder how this compares to the Copper Novapelle Lambskin that Wested now offer.
