HOW TO PREPARE YOUR HORSE HAIR
– To make a bracelet we need 270 strands of hair of the same length – this is a good pencils thickness. You can do this over time, or take hairs from two or more horses. Every hair MUST be 18 inches long. There should not be any short hairs. Be careful so hair does not tangle or knot.
– Keep different hair colours in separate bundles. Tie the end of each bundle with a horse-plaiting/elastic band.
– With the band holding the hair tightly together at one end, wash the hair with mild shampoo and ensure it is clean. Please do not use any conditioners or other products.
WE CANNOT ACCEPT ANY HORSE HAIR UNLESS IT HAS BEEN WASHED THOROUGHLY.
– Leave the hair to dry and then brush it through so there are no tangles. Then tie the other end with an elastic band too. Loosely coil the bundle of hair into a plastic zip lock bag with your order form.
– If you are sending more than one colour, please choose which pattern you would like in your bracelet:
– Please download this order form (right click your mouse, then ‘save link as’ to your computer) print it out, complete it and also put it in the envelope. Please post everything in a padded envelope to protect your hair. We recommend you send it using registered post. We will have it completed within eight weeks and will post it back to you, including any hair we did not use.
PLEASE NOTE IF YOUR HORSE HAIR IS NOT CLEAN OR IS TANGLED, WE CANNOT USE IT AND IT WILL BE RETURNED TO YOU, MINUS POSTAGE COSTS.
