Item details

Horsehair braid is a kind of crinoline netting that can be used as a decorative trim, or an internal stiffener. Its unusual properties -- it can stretch and shrink to become narrower or wider -- make it popular in theater and dance costumes, for millinery and hair accessories, and for historical re-enactors. Use horsehair braid to stiffen hems, puff out puff sleeves, make belts, bows, and headpieces. In our horsehair braid, there's a gathering thread on one side, which can be pulled to shrink the braid, creating more shape possibilities. Once upon a time it was made of horse hair, but is now made of 100% Polyester.

The listing is for 25 yards (22.85 meters). We have six widths: 1" (25mm), 2" (50mm), 3" (75mm), 4" (100mm), 6" (150mm) and 8" (200mm).

There are two weights of horsehair braid: hard and soft. Hard horsehair like in this listing holds a little more strongly, and soft horsehair is a little gentler. Find soft horsehair (in 8 colors) here: https://www.etsystudio.com/listing/276035442/25-yards-of-soft-horsehair-braid-with
