Horse Hair for Upholstery Padding?
Hi,
There aren't many upholstery ready horse hair providers. So I'm thinking of buying freshly cut horse hair. Can I just use long strands to stuff a chair or do I need to cut them down to size and mix up the strands?

I plan to buy these:

Asking the supplier is always a good idea,

as they may have had past clients in the exact same situation as you.

horsehair
The hair used in most upholstery using traditional methods is a mix of horse and hog hair and the mixture gives it the springiness and softness you need for this application. Try gary's upholstery supplies. Cleaning horsehair is a very labor intensive process I have tried it, and probably not worth the trouble.

The stuff used in upholstery ...
The stuff used in upholstery is usually rubberized. I think this makes it last longer and retain the springiness better. Do a search for "rubberized hair" to find sources.
