Instructions For Collecting Horse Hair (NOTE: Tail Hair Only unless resin or discussed with Trish Carter)
Grasp the longest hairs at the bottom of the tail.
Lift the longest hairs to one side and with other hand pull the shorter hairs away. Separate as many short hairs as possible so you are only cutting the longest hair.
Cut close to the tailbone.
Cut 2-4 bunches from different sections on the tail so you are not cutting too much from one area.
The final bundle should be the diameter of your 1/2 yourpinky finger. For a standard sized bracelet the length needs to be 15 inches long. For a necklace the length needs to be twice the length of the finished necklace.
Tie a rubber band around the bundle. Please do not use tape.
The hair should be clean and free of tangles or mats. Ideally not braided or knot the hair.
Do not send hair that is covered in dirt or feces. Ideally wash and completely dry hair before sending. Do not add oil, show sheen or any other similar product to the hair.
Put the hair bundle in a zip-lock bag. Label the bag with your name and phone number.
Mail along with your order form.
Measuring for bracelets:
Measure your wrist at the largest part.
Add 3/4-1 inch to this measurement depending upon preference.
This is your final bracelet length.
On the order form indicate the finished bracelet length NOT the wrist size.
