A shortage of #squirrel #hair in the market will soon reflect in the price of these brushes. If you are planning to buy a squirrel brush do it soon before they start jacking up the prices.

I am in touch with several suppliers of natural and synthetic hair filament for brushes. These suppliers provide hair in industrial quantities to brush makers (Cosmetic & Art) around the world. The latest news from them is that they are experiencing a significant shortage of dressed natural squirrel hair. I am not sure what the reason is behind this shortage, but it will inevitably impact the end-user market before the supplies come back to normal.
