Omega Lily Varnish Brushes have a thin glider design. Lily brushes yield thin but uniform varnish applications appropriate for furniture and faux finishing. Available in seven sizes, they are about double the thickness of conventional brushes, making them perfect for flowing on finishes like varnish, oils, lacquer and shellac.
Their fine, flagged ends and stiffness achieve professional results while saving time. For interior varnishing of household trim, an Omega Lily brush holds an incredible amount of finish and the chisel edge cuts in extremely well.

What is the bristle material?
I don't know what the bristle material is. The only thing I know is that it is a natural bristle.
Not 100% sure; but it's either badger, or hog bristle; These OMEGA brushes- *((I have 3 of them, they are the FINEST ever for varnishes, Oil alklyd paint, fine finishes, You will not be sorry. I have them in 3 widths- good luck! Larry R.
Called 'White China Bristle' it is literally made of processed, straitened, and graded hog hair, which is naturally stiff, tapered, and split (frayed) at their ends. For hundreds of years considered one of the very best fibers for applying viscous oil and resin based varnishes.The Omega brushes differ from others in that they are thin in profile, and are designed to build up multiple layers of very thin coats. The longest lasting, and most ideal method for important restoration work. This is true for historic furniture, and buildings, as well as boats.The best over-rought Check out this video on YouTube:http://youtu.be/2hsIxFm6VK0Thanks.SeanWall posters showcasing high gloss "Doors of Dublin", "Doors of London", "Doors of Amstradam", illustrate woodwork pains-takenly painted with similar brushes.

Extra fine hog hair
I just watched the dvd from Jamestown Distributors. They say the bristles are hog bristles, bleached three times. That is why they are fairly white in color.
please translate sizes into inches for this brush?
I recall the brush being about 2" wide. The brush was so good that someone had stolen it when it was drying.
I'm not sure where to start as I do not recall the linear units stated for the width of the brushes but assuming the brushed came in metric measurement then the conversion is a simple one; Whatever centimeter length given for the brush divide that by 2.54 as there are 2.54 centimeters/inch.Bottom line for me was that those brushes were of high quality.
I use Gamvar varnish to finish my paintings and use your brush to get a smooth even coat.
