Sharp, wiry, hard eyebrow hairs...

In the past six months I have been noticing that some of my eyebrow hairs are growing back as very wiry and thick strands. They are quite sharp to the touch and grow fairly fast (and long). I have pretty thick eyebrows and have plucked for several years (no one likes a monobrow!)

Is this a result of plucking or of just getting older (I am a 33 year old male). I have no hair loss (I have a lot of curly hair on my head) and am curious as to why I have started to develop very wiry hair on my eyebrows. I have also noticed several whiskers on my face which are very thick, wiry and sensitive to the touch.
Any ideas?

I realize this is a minor hair issue, but I am facinated that I am growing several hairs on each eyebrow that are so strong/wiry/thick, and am curious if it is related to plucking, age, diet, etc.
Thank you.

Super thick hairs occur more frequently with age - I have a couple myself in my beard. I can't tell you why they occur though. They can be a real problem as the hairs can sometimes become in growing. If they become a serious problem they can be cut out by the dermatologist although this will leave a small scar.
