そろそろ胎毛筆の時期かしら。Newborn calligraphy brush

お姑さまから「髪が長い〜。目に入る〜。切れ〜」「髪くくると頭皮に良くない〜。切れ〜」と、ぶーぶー文句を言われ続けて約1年。そろそろ胎毛筆作れるかな。息子の髪は直毛なので1歳直後に作ったのだけど、娘は天然パーマなので、くるんっとなった筆が作りたくて、ずっと伸ばしていました。

My daughter’s hair is ready for “Taimo Fude”, a keepsake calligraphy brush made from the hair of a newborn baby. Ancient Asian people made this brush when their children had his or her first hair cut. It is also said to be a wish to promote health and intelligence (and good hand writing). I made (I meant order) one for my son when he turned one but I wanted to wait until now for my daughter (she is almost two) because she has curly hair and I wanted to make a curly calligraphy brush!
