My Goat Hair brushes are ideal for water based inks and paints. Goat hair is traditionally the go to brush for most use. My goat bristles are made from what ic known and 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.

They are very popular with artists who like a traditional brush that is on the soft side.  Goat hair has awesome media holding and delivery capability and forms a fine tip. It is fairly soft and has a little springiness to it.
