From what I can see online I think so. I don’t know the rubberised horsehair product, perhaps it’s more versatile than scouring pads. R-
Not sure if I have plenty of time on my hands - or I’ve simply forgotten to do something really important.

So, do you tease it out to give a random appearance? R-

Yes you do, or trim with scissors to make random shapes.

Yes, Roger.
It comes in flat slabs - slice it into strips, pull it apart and spray it with grey/brown paint. Spray with adhesive (I use layering spray for static grass) then sprinkle scenic scatter onto it. Trim any loose bits with scissors.
I made these for Low Ghyll.

Looks good stuff. If only my OCD would allow me to be that random. :D R-

My OCD insists I be accurate<G> So random is right.

Horsehair hedges need a careful trim with very good scissors when finished to get rid of any fly away tendencies at the edges.
