Default Re: Hand Stacking

Bekiu-

I'm willing to bet it's in large part because they hair isn't 'clean' to begin with, and second there is too much static in the hair and the stacker to be as successful as you'd like.

Similar to the comment I made about calf tail, bucktail is rather kinky and can be tough to stack, and cleaning out the underfur before you start is critical to success.

Try cutting a chunk off the tail (or use a whole one if you have multiples) and wash it and dry it thoroughly then see if your stacking goes easier.
