What is nappy leather?
We cannot find an online definition, just sites describing uses of it.

I doubt that you would find "nappy" anywhere. I was referring to RJ's use of the " fine nap whitish tan" leather. Sorry for misleading you.
In case you did not read it, following is the message that was repeated in my reply.

Perhaps not but I got a "Large 5 oz. Vegetable Tanned Cowhide Leather Hide Hides" off ebay for not very much to experiment with. The finish is a fine nap whitish tan that I do not find especially attractive nor do I particularly like the feel of it. So I tired waxing it to see what it would look and feel like. Now the finish is a smooth hard golden tan with a soft sheen that I do like but the look is mottled .......
