A place for English speaking sofrim (scribes), magihim (examiners), rabbis and vendors of Stam (Torah, Tefillin and Mezuzah scrolls) from around the world to communicate, share ideas, ask questions and offer support and advice.
I believe Zichron Eliyahu discusses the practice of most Sofrim to take out more than one.

The reason why we pull out more than one hair is b/c if that 1 hair slips back in or is torn, there would be no hairs sticking out.
One is still lechatchilla
One may be preferred, not just lechatchila. The point I'm making is that the reason why we don;t just pull out one is due to the risk of it slipping back in, getting torn, leaving the tefillin with no hair sticking out.
