Parchment is made from animal skin—usually calf, sheep, or goat—which has been processed to strip away blood and fat. Unlike leather, parchment is not tawed or tanned. The finished product is composed almost entirely of collagen, a long molecule that forms intertwined strands called fibrils. This collagen network makes the membrane strong and resistant to tearing.
