Finding fiber that is fine enough for our felted sculptures is important if your whiskers are to be in the right scale to your sculpture! Horse mane or tail hair is sometimes used, but the hairs are still too thick for smaller sculptures.
Use MINI horse mane hair. This is from a miniature horse that is only 32 inches tall!!It is delicate and fine enough to look just right. Here is an example of a lovely bit of mane in various colors so it can be used for more dozens of projects! Exceptionally fine!
