    Looks good man but it will need more color unless its a synthetic material then it will need to be painted because it wont take dye.

    The girth is either mohair or cotton, not synthetic at all.

    Mohair won't dye well either, mine is mohair and it didn't take the dye well.

    Nice score!! I paid &#36;25 new for mine.

    Mine is mohair and it dyed fine but it takes several applicatoins with the stove top method. I have applied the dye 4 times already and may still need one more time.

    I bought mine new from Stateline Tack for &#36;14.99. Mohair. Dyed it ONCE with Liquid Rit in a pot on the stove, then stretched it on a board with nails to keep it from shrinking once it dried. Left it there to dry for 2 days, and it looks perfect!

    Stateline Tack's girth isn't 100%, it is Washable 60% rayon/40% wool fiber. Will this dye correctly?

    I dont think the rayon will take dye Jedi-Bob.
