 +====== Treading Pelt ======
 +
 +Trampling on the [[p:​pelts|pelt]],​ to make it soft and pliable, after it has been soaked in the [[p:​pelt-pot|pelt pot]], and to get rid of the superfluous moisture, previous to [[k:​knock-up|knocking-up]]. This is usually done when the pressmen are at work, and by him who is [[b:​beat|beating]]. ​
 +
 +This is an inconvenient process when a man is working at [[h:​half-press|half press]]; but it may be dispensed with; for a pelt well [[c:​currying-pelt|curried]] will answer equally well: it appears as if treading was the ancient practice, before the [[c:​currying-iron|currying iron]] was introduced. ​
