Clump of hair in wall?

January 6, 2013

While doing some work tonight removing a section of plaster, my son found a large clump of animal or human hair in the plaster, in front of where plaster was over the chimney. I know they mixed horse hair in plaster, but this was much to large, and it was just hair, no plaster in it. Like it was placed there purposefully, maybe. Our house in in the midwest, 102 years young. I am going to attempt to load a pic. Any idea why it would be there? Ive heard of people putting strange things in the walls for superstitious reasons, but hair? lol
