    Common Questions

    Q: How do I collect my horsehair?
    A: Take the longest hairs from the middle of the tail right below the tailbone. Cut 2 small amounts from different places close to tailbone. The final amount should be about the width of a pencil at least 10 inches long. Use a rubber band around the hair, and put in a Ziploc bag. Label the Ziploc bag with your name, phone number and order number. We will match the contact information on your order with the return address on your package.

    Q: How do you size the bracelets?
    A: Use a soft measuring tape or dental floss for accurate measuring of your wrist. Measure for your bracelet is by taking your exact wrist measurement, then add an inch and a quarter (1.25 inches). Please add the 1.25 when entering Bracelet size on your order. Example: Wrist Size: 6 Bracelet Size: 7.25. This will be your finished bracelet length which includes all hardware. Your bracelet will be a comfortable fit, not too tight and not too loose. Typical bracelet sizes are Small 7 to 7.25 Average 7.5 to 7.75 Large 8 to 8.5.
