Connoisseur Yuming Best Combination: Combination, or flow brushes, are a mixture of wolf and sheep hair. Brushes feature a softer outer layer for good absorbtion and a core of stiffer hair for resiliency. Thus each brush has excellent water holding capacity and is flexible enough to draw fine lines.
Connoisseur has worked closely with Pacific Northwest sumi artist, Yuming Zhu, to develop a collection of superior quality sumi brushes. All are made out of high quality sheep and/or "wolf hair". Yuming sumi brushes by Connoisseur are recommended by sumi masters and teachers across the nation.
