Been struggling with this brush for a while. Love the handle and the knot but it's shedding horribly. It has been shedding ever since I got it (used) and I can't get it to stop. Since I can't save it what can I do? I really want it to remain a Simpson so reknotting it isn't my first option unless it's with an "original" knot. If I send it off to Simpson to be reknotted am I out more money than if I just bought a new one? Just don't know what to do.

Send Mark at Simpsons an email for advice regarding your brush (although he is currently travelling, I'm sure he will still respond).

I had emailed Mark a few weeks ago and he said to try shampoo and dry comb to get them out and I did but it is still letting them go. I emailed him again for suggestions.

As Ben says, I'm in Australia until the 6th May but can attend to this on my return to the office :-)

Mark seems to always resolve shedding issues with Simpson brushes, so don't worry, I'm sure it will be adequately sorted out. Smile

Brushes sometimes do that and then miraculously stop. Go figure. There are so many thousand hairs in a badger brush, especially a Simpson, that it would hardly make any difference to the loft. It's still upsetting, I realise.

Do you rotate with other brushes?

I have 5 of 6 other brushes with more on the way and this one has been lower on the rotation due to the issues.
