Observations

Natural animal hair degrades when in strongly alkaline environments such as lime plasters/mortars. We strongly advise the site addition of natural hair to reduce the risk of degradation if pre-mixed mortars are left standing in a wet state. It is advisable to batch only enough haired mix for immediate use.
