Natural Sheep Casings 22-24mm are an edible natural casing. These sheep casings are ideal for breakfast sausage, small snack sticks, hot dogs, frankfurters. 

Sheep casings also come in 22- 24mm 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.

Natural Sheep Casings 22 – 24mm Product Details:

Preparing Natural Casings 

  1. Remove approximate amount you will need.
  2. Place casings in a clean food safe bowl.
  3. Rinse casings of salt under cool running water.
  4. Flush insides of casings to assist in smooth casing application.
  5. For small casings (<42mm): place bowl in cool water to soak for about 2 hours in refrigerator prior to use.
  6. For larger casings (>42mm): place bowl of beef bung, middles and/or rounds in refrigerator to soak overnight prior to use.
  7. Optional for smell control – add ½ tsp baking soda per cup of water.
  8. Optional for tenderizing – squeeze a lemon or a add a tablespoon of white vinegar to soaking water to refresh casings.

The natural casings should be kept refrigerated until ready for use. Un-refrigerated, these salted casings may give off a strong odor. This is Normal.  Simply put the casings back into the refrigerator and the odor will subside. Natural casings should never be frozen. It affects their integrity after thawing and will cause more blowouts.

      Haven’t used them yet, but if they are like the Hog Casings they will be great.

      I have bought natural sheep casings from Sausage Maker for over 30 years and I have never had a problem with the product quality. Sausage Maker is a great company and I’ve never had any issues with them; they ship their products very promptly and are very reliable. Thank you!

      Very easy & convenient to order from the catalog. Sales Rep was very helpful & kind. She recorded my contact information perfectly and I didn’t have to spell anything twice. I was impressed because that’s very uncommon these days. She confirmed all all of the items ordered and everything arrived a few days later.

      Arrived quickly and packaged well. Casings were well salted and packed in a plastic bag inside a jar with tamper-proof lid.
      I’ve stuffed about eight pounds of breakfast links so far. Rinsed casings inside and out, soaking in cold water for about a half hour before filling.
      The casings are super smooth and supple – indiscernible from fresh. Average length is about six feet. No holes or blemishes. Highly recommended!

      Sheep casing can be a pain to work with at times, but I find the product from Sausage Maker to be an easier casing to stuff than others I have used. Most likely due to the packaging they use and the storage containers.

      My mom used the product and it was excellent. We will be ordering from you a lot from now on.

      perfect for the sausage sticks a little hard to work with but worth the effort

      I have been making my own sausage for years and have always been very frustrated with Breakfast sausage casings until now… after just soaking for a couple of hours I had no problem sliding them over the stuffing tube and had Zero Blow-outs.. a great product…

      The casings are great, but these guys knock it out of the park in their customer service department.

      Promt delivery. Easy to use. One casing was weak in spots and busted in a few areas while stuffing. The rest were perfect. Would recommend.

      I imagine with all things of this nature it takes practice. It took me a while to get use to using these and not overfill them and cause a blow out. But it was also my first time ever using natural casings.

    31. Bryan C (verified owner)

      Worked well for us. Nice long sections. High quality.

      We make a wonderful snack size salami like wurstli with these. Very nice, somewhat fragile.

      Haven’t used yet. Nice packaging.

    38. Lonny Slinger (verified owner)

      Since this is the first time ever using a natural casing I found it a little more difficult to work with while wearing gloves but quickly got the hang of it and it worked out fine. This casing has some surprising strength to it while stuffing yet is not present while eating. I highly recommend it.

    39. TC (verified owner)

      Keep it on hand. Keep it salted and it will last a long time. Might as well buy a big jar. Great ‘Crunch’ for brats and everyone wants to know where I got the big breakfast sausage.

      We have been using these for around the last 15 years! In fact when we were living in Buffalo, I always went to their store at the Clinton Market to buy these! Always excellent quality.
      Highly recommended!

      Delivery was on time and we are always happy with the quality of the product – especially on the thinner casings as they tend to be more temperamental to work with.

      The casings were 20-22 mm size and were short, none over 6′ long, I used them anyway, high quality casings.

      I am a regular user of sheep casing, some packet have very short casings which is annoying. Some packets are satisfactory but I still support you
