loose hairs

I have a Winsor & Newton mop brush that was given to me a while ago.
Ever since I have had it, I find that bits of hair seem to be breaking off in lengths of anywhere between about a 1/8" to 1".
It doesn't seem to matter how gently I use the brush I always seem to get at least small bits of hair coming off.
Anybody had this problem and resolved it?

Re: loose hairs

It would appear that nobody has an answer to my problem.

Re: loose hairs

I am not an expert in brushes, but...
One reason could be that someone removed improperly the glue protective layer which have the brush when leaving the factory, squeezing and bending the hairs instead of wetting it before use.
This could caused the hairs to be damaged or cracked...

As I said, I´m not expert, but it´s the only reason I can think of.

Re: loose hairs

I never thought of that possibility but I have always found that Winsor & Newton products were of good quality.

Re: loose hairs

You are right.
I have three W&N mop brushes (Pure Squirrel) and I have never had any problem with them.
I think they are the best mops I have (and the Escoda Aquario).

Other possibility could be a factory defect.
