You can get pre peeled favas dried. I would peel them after soaking because that is how I learned, some think you should not peel favas ever. Do what works for you.

Sometimes skins of dried favas will start to shed upon rehydrating. Once dried the skins will become tough, therefore most people remove them altogether. However, it is common to cook and eat fresh favas unpeeled.
