Horse hair collection and preparation

The horse hair can be taken from the horse in a number of ways.
  • Hold each hair at the bottom and pull out with a strong tug
  • Cut from the underside of the tail where it wont be noticed
  • Collect hair each time you brush the tail!

In order for me to successfully braid or weave the hair I need to have a minimum of 10" lengths of tail hair of approximately a pencil thickness for each item required. If you have less than this or are unsure then contact me to discuss what can be done. Please note that for bracelets that braid right the way round the wrist I need a minimum of 15” lengths of hair.

If possible please wash the hair prior to sending it but DO NOT use any conditioning shampoo or conditioners/detanglers, normal shampoo or washing up liquid is fine.

Tie the bundle of hair to prevent it separating and label with your details and horses name.

When the hair is braided it is done in exactly the state that it is sent to me (bar washing) – it is not treated or dyed in anyway, so may even still have some of your horses smell on it!

Sending the hair to us

Please ensure that sufficient postage is paid when the horse hair is sent to us. This normally means a large letter stamp due to the thickness of the envelope. We do not accept items from the Post Office that have had insufficient postage paid on them, unless a £5 fee is paid to cover the Post Office fee, postage and collection. If in any doubt about the postage required for your package, please visit your post office or the Royal Mail website for advice.

Please clearly label your package with your name so we can match your horse hair up with your order.

More than one horse

If you would like an item making from the hair from more than one horse then there is no problem with this. Make sure the hair bundles are easily identifiable and put instructions into the special requests box on the order form.

Special Requirements

If you require a different length of necklace or bracelet then put the details into the special requests box. There is no charge for this unless you require the length to be significantly longer than currently described. Any other queries then please do not hesitate to contact me.

Payment

With the move away from paper cheques, we now accept payment by PayPal or direct bank transfer. You can do this by using our on-line checkout. Please contact us if you prefer to order by post.

Delivery

Please allow 3-4 weeks for delivery. If you require an item sooner than this then contact me and I will try to help! Items are posted back by special delivery so require a signature on receipt. Christmas time is obviously very busy, so I would recommend that if you are thinking about purchasing an item for Christmas you post your order in from September onwards. I cannot always guarantee a 3-4 week delivery at this time. Alternatively, gift certificates can be purchased.
