Red Sable Brushes for Oils
Pure Red Sable has been the soft hair brush of choice for many years. Real red sable comes from the tail of the marten weasel. In the U.S., everything from top sable to rat hair is used in brushes and called sable – it’s a buyer beware market. Our red sable brushes are pure red sable. They are not hidden in cellophane or strapped to a board. Know what you expect from a brush and then make the dealer let you test the brush. A good shop will have water available and let you test several brushes.
