Natural Sheep Casings 20- 22mm are an edible natural casing. These sheep casings are ideal for breakfast sausage and small snack sticks. Sheep casings also come in 20- 22mm Pretubed size.

Sheep casings are the softest and most tender among all the other types of natural casings. Their elasticity makes them quite malleable to expansion without splitting. 

Sheep casings are all-natural, and so they do not need to be removed after cooking. They also have a natural taste and smell that does not interfere with the ingredients of your sausages.

  3. Rinse casings of salt under cool running water.
  4. Flush insides of casings to assist in smooth casing application.

  6. For larger casings (>42mm): place bowl of beef bung, middles and/or rounds in refrigerator to soak overnight prior to use.

  4. Erik Johannessen (verified owner)

    Perhaps it’s just that I’m a beginner but these casings were very hard to use. I spent so much time trying to load the small casings onto the sausage stuffer and the tended to knot up while trying to separate them.

    Great product, however make sure you know the size measurements you need. The 20-22mm casing here is different than the 20-22mm casings on other brands. Unfortunately I Didn’t realize that until the day I intended to use them.The descriptions at first glance can be deceiving, ensure you read thoroughly.

    Nice consistant size. Really long section for uninterrupted stuffing. Tend to be very fragile. Just dont stuff as full as you would collagen. Nice snap when biting into them.

    Casings were really knotted up in the container. Took a long time to separate individual casings. I’m not experienced enough to know if this is standard. Once they were separated though, they worked like a charm.

    casings are of top quality, are nice and long, consistent size, and they very seldom blow out. Love the plastic containers too.

    Casing were in excellent condition and shipping was much faster than expected which help me accomplish what I wanted to do with time to spare. Thank you,

    I make a venison breakfast sausage using Sausage Makers breakfast seasoning blend and these casings. I usually have to fry up double batches to keep everyone happy. Great size, a little trickier to work with, and pricier than Hog casing, but absolutely a must have if you are a pro.

    I love ordering from Sausage Maker! Their variety is incredible and service outstanding!
    If making thin sausage, I would recommend using 22-24mm casings because the 20-22mm casings tend to hang up on the feeder tube of my sausage stuffer. Worked great but takes extra care to not burst link!

    After requesting an expedited order, Meghan did her best to get it to me on time for Mother’s Day and sausage was ready for the family when they arrived. Thanks again.

    Very happy with your products would never shop anywhere else….if I had anything bad to say it would be shipping takes to long..but in these unsettling times I guess that’s the norm…..for anyone out there that enjoys making sausage the sausage maker is the place to shop….they have everything you could ever want and very reasonably priced
