My Goat Hair brushes are ideal for water based inks and paints. Goat hair is traditionally the “go-to” brush for most. My goat hair bristles are made from what is known as double dressed Goat hair. Dressing is the process of cleaning the bristle material. It includes washing, combing out so that hair length is uniform and no other debris are in the hair. Double dressing repeats this process with an end result of extreme high quality hair. My goat hair bristle material is actually designed for use as makeup brushes. There is no finer quality available.
My Goat Hair brushes are very popular with artists who like a traditional brush that is on the soft side. Goat hair has about the best in media holding and delivery other than Sables, and Goat hair forms a fine tip. It is fairly soft and has a little springiness to it.
