Thank you all for welcome me. If you come to Italy you all are invited for dinner

I think the whole fleece has to be replaced and glue isn't reliable, over time it would come loose. Real sheepskin is possibly the best you can have on the back of your saddle.
It's a pity that old craft shops close up; the community is loosing know-how and communication nodes.
Good luck Cacowgirl!
