Lucky Braids' Specialized Braiding Yarn is the best available for braiding horses' manes ant tails. It's strong with stretch for straight, sturdy braids that can maintain clean bottomline all day. If a horse sweats or gets a bath, it won't loosen. Match your horse's mane to accentuate the bottomline of the braids, to make the neck look longer and rounder.
Available by the skein. Skeins are big enough to braid several horses.
"We were also impressed with Lucky Braids by Ruthann’s Yarn, which offers everything a braider looks for in a braiding material. Lucky Braids yarn is easy on the hands and remarkably strong—we couldn’t break it when we tried! But it is also thin and creates knots that are practically invisible when made correctly."
