    girth belt dye.........

    got myself a mohair girth belt, tried to dye it burgundy and it came out lilac.
    not happy.

    try using a wood stain. I am not sure what is available in the UK though. The mohair will not hold regular fabric dye, majority of it will bleed out.

    The other option is to use spray paints. Believe it or not the spray paint works fairly well.
