    Sorry I didn't post any pics as I thought my aunt shipped the horsehair (she owns/boards horses) on wed. But she hasn't shipped it yet so it may me a week or so before I get started.

    All the hair is from brushing.

    Well as it turns out, most o f the hair is black so it will be black with white tassels. Will get started soon.

    A bag of horse hair is more like a piece of felt! Might be week or two longer...

    Sorry I haven't got started yet but I have been playing highland tailor by: making a modern kilt, altering my harris tweed sportcoat into a braemar (I am about 3 months in and only half way done but now that I've got the basics done it should be easy), altering a sportcoat to wear w/ trİus£rs, making a sporran and a sgian dubh. So at this pace I should be posting the first photos of the step by step in about 5 yrs (not really, about a week or two)
