Goat Hair - 100g Bundle

Why use animal hair in lime plasters?

Animal hair can be added to lime plasters to give the mix extra tensile strength.  It acts as a natural reinforcement and effective bonding key.

  • Goat hair is a fine white hair. Being finer than horse hair it is usually added to second or straightening coats and takes slightly longer to tease into the mix. 
  • Sold in 100g bundles.*
  • A bundle of approximately 100g will be required for an area of 4sqm of lath or 6sqm of solid wall.
  • As a general rule, use 25g of animal hair per 25kg of lime putty plaster.

Animal hair for lath and lime plastering

The use of animal hair is particulary important when lime plastering onto LATHS, as the plaster doesn't adhere well to timber once dried.  A lime plaster for laths will require more hair than a plaster which is being applied to solid wall.  See our HOW TO LIME PLASTER ONTO LATHS user guide for more information.

Adding the hair to the lime plaster

It is important when adding hair to ensure that it is evenly distributed throughout the mix.  Clumps of hair in a lime plaster will create weak points.

The hair should be added to the plaster just before application as the alkalinity of the lime attacks the protein in the hair causing it to dissolve over a period of time.

There is more information about additives in lime plaster in our ADDITIVES user guide.
