    Pat's dye recipe for mohair cinch (AKA Girth Belt)

    ok i dyed mmy belt with great results,
    heres what I did

    2 1/2 gallons very hot water on stove
    added 1/2 cup of salt and 2 4 finger pinches of powder detergent
    stirred
    1/2 bottle of Rit Wine Red
    strirred
    1 bottle of Rit scarlett
    stirred
    wet belt with hot water and added to dye for 30 minuted stirring about ever 5 minutes

    rinsed belt with cold water until water coming off was pink

    ran through warm wash cycle w/ 1/2 cap of liquid detergent

    it is still pretty damp in the pic

    BTW there was one more of these at the tack shop I went to, size 40

    Looks good to me. The color is almost personal preference. I think anything from brown to burgundy to even red can work. I have also seen reference pics that seam to show all those colors.
