Soft, silky fibers obtained from the guard hairs of several species of badger from the family ''Mustelidae'', particulary the Eurasian badger (''Mele meles''). Badger hair is usually white on both ends with a dark band in the middle. High quality badger hairs are produced for artist brushes in China, Asia Minor, the Balkans, and Russia. Badger hairs are used for fan shaped blenders and bushy rounds that are often mounted in [[quill]] ferrules (Pinney 1999). Imitation badger hair brushes are made by dyeing less expensive fur fibers, such as [[ox%20hair|ox ear hair]]. Badger fur has also been used for mats.
