Cutting Horse Hair
Cutting horses’ hair is straight forward, painless and undetectable.
1) All horse hair must come from the tail (unless otherwise stated) and washed before sending.
2) Go to the bottom of your horses dock (tail bone) and then to the back
3) comb through the hair again
4) take cuttings close to the bone from several places with scissors and be careful not to pull the hair
5)Take a pencils width or more (if unsure more is always better)
6) Once you have gathered your hair secure the top end with a rubber or plaiting band.
** Please ensure that the hair is washed thoroughly before sending unless paying for the wash service **
You can wash your horses tail first before cutting if warm enough or possible and brush through thoroughly
If washing afterwards
Rinse hair to rid of surface dirt and bits and wash twice in a mild shampoo with a final rinse and lay on a towel or paper towel to dry. Do not use conditioner and make sure the hair is thoroughly dry before posting. Place dry hair in a bag with your completed order form
Do not plait or coil your horse hair tightly.
5. ** VERY IMPORTANT NOTICE **
Please put enough stamps on the envelope when you post your horse hair. The Post Office will refuse to deliver an underpaid package, and will charge an additional administration fee for each underpaid item in addition to the underpayment amount. Unfortunately we cannot collect these packages and the Post Office does not inform us from whom the underpaid package was sent.
** If in doubt have the post office weigh the package. (They will happily do this free of charge.)
Hair Lengths, Fur and Ashes amounts
Bracelets (Simple or Plain Braid) should be 18″ long, and the width of a pencil.
Country or Square Braid should be 18-20″ long and 1 ½ times a pencil thickness.
Multi Braid should be 20″ long or longer 1 ½ times a pencil thickness.
On necklaces where hair is used as a chain, the hair should be 25″ (or longer) and as thick as 2 pencils.
For resin products any amount can be used. For a loop of hair I need hair which is as thick as a pencil and at least 5″ in length.
For pet fur cuttings any amount of hair can be used - However please be aware shorter fur lengths will not be looped but scattered into the resin.
Its best to double wrap your ashes using a ziplock bag or sealed plastic bag when sending and put inside a bubble bag for safety.
Most items require no more than 4 teaspoons of ashes.
