Winsor & Newton's synthetic mongoose fiber offers better durability than natural mongoose. This unique synthetic fiber is so much like mongoose, it even has the tapered point and surface texture of the natural hair. It is stiffer than sable, but softer than hog bristle, perfect for acrylic and oil painting. Each brush is elegantly crafted with a gold ferrule, and a dark brown-stained lacquered handle. The bristles are handsomely variegated in shades of ivory, gold, and brown.
Shipping Note - Due to manufacturer distribution restrictions, Winsor & Newton products cannot be shipped to addresses outside of North America.
Brush sizes - The length and width of a brush of a given shape and size may vary by manufacturer as brush sizes are not standardized. Since fine art brushes are handmade, expect some variation even among brushes from within a single brush line.
