Grey Horse Hair
The name Horse Hair is now widely used to describe a mixture of hogs hair and horse mane. Pure horse tail or mane hair being difficult to obtain and extremly expensive.
Our Horse Hair is a mixture of 80% hogs hair and 20% Horse Mane Hair, making a good filler for both first and second stuffing. Easy to use and shape.
Available in 1kilo packs, and 4kilo packs and a 10kilo Trade Sack
The amount of filling used in a piece of furniture depends on a lot of different factors and an upholsterer will have a large sack beside the workbench and just take what he/she needs using experience to get the effect required.
But as a rough guide for the second stuffing 0.25 kilo for a drop-in Dining Seat: 1 kilos for a Stuff-over Dining Seat. and 2 kilos for an Armchair Seat
Fillings should be held in place with Lightweight Hessian or Scrim
Cotton/Wool Felt or Skin Wadding is used a barrier to stop the fibre working its way to the top Fabric.
