Kolinsky hair is taken from an animal that belongs to the family of mustelids. The hair's hues range from light yellow to dark brown. The tips are very fine and the resilience is excellent. Russian producers do not subdivide this kind of hair into several types in order to enlarge the assortment of brushes under the name "kolinsky".

So called Korean and Chinese kolinsky is softer and more brittle. It has a longer racine, but the difference in the hair thickness at the base and at the tip is not significant. Treated well, this kind of hair becomes hard to distinguish from Siberian kolinsky. The Russian Siberian kolinsky brushes "Sonnet" and "Roubloff" are of the highest professional quality. They come with various shapes and hair length-out. We sell round brushes from kolinsky with full or pointed belly, brushes with standard or short length-outs, as well as the ones with an extra long length-out ("schleppers"). Flat brushes may have both variants of a length-out.

Siberian kolinsky is considered to have the best hair. It has unique characteristics. The maximal thickness of the racine is 0.15mm, which can be compared to the thickness of hog bristle. At the same time, the tip is very fine like the squirrel's. An artist can work with thick paints as well as with watercolors using kolinsky brushes.
