Goat Hair for Lime Plaster & Render

 Natural animal and goat hair is ideal for teasing into lime mortars.

Ideal for use in Lime Plastering and Lime Rendering

The hair is added to the mortar for use on Lime Plasters & Renders for strength, it acts as a reinforcing to the mortar. Goat Hair should be lightly scattered over the mortar in a thin layer, the hair needs to be chopped into the mortar with a trowel or shovel. If the hair is not put into the mortar this way it will simply (ball up), and will not separate.

To test the amount of hair in the mortar, take a trowel full of the mortar and gentle tap the base of the trowel on a object. The hair should hang down from the side of the trowel, you will need approximately 5-8 hairs per inch for basic base plaster. The Goat Hair is best used in Lime Base Coat Plasters, fine goat can be used in final coat plasters, if cut into short lengths.

1kg of Goat Hair will hair around 1 ton of Lime Mortar
