    100% mohair - natural -

    Depending on your shipping method, (I picked 2nd day - shipping tomorrow for Friday delivery) - you will probably get what you need.

    I called them direct and ordered - not from the website.

    Will update when I get them - crosses fingers.

    Their website did not give me an option of what kind of shipping I wanted.

    Re: They have girth belts in stock - shipping now.

    DHL delivered two brand new Girth Belts yesterday.

    They are 100% mohair from what I can tell (tagged as such)..

    will be putting em in dye today. Will let you know results.

    I called them to place the order Donnie - that is how I was able to get two day shipping.

    Without it - they said they would of shipped next week Wednesday.

    The price is better, but they don't allow you to buy the smaller sizes for some reason. The smallest you can select is 40", even though they say it goes all the way down to 34"

    I think because of the mishap with my other belt, I might as well jump on buying one of these.

    Re: They have girth belts in stock - shipping now.

    as promised - the pictures of the dyed belts...




    One is a 34" the other is a 32".

    (I'm keeping the 34" and the 32" found a home all ready)

    I will be putting my extra large belt up for grabs once I get the measurements for it - it's pretty big though, hence me getting more belts....

    Post Note:
    I will probably have one more 34" belt coming in - so I will offer that too..

    Few questions:

    Are the vertical pieces of mohair made of the same material as the horizontal mohair pieces?

    Is this the color after they were rinsed and dried or straight out of the dye bath?

    Re: They have girth belts in stock - shipping now.

    1. They are not the same "twine" as the horizontal,
    I'm not sure if they are 100% mohair.

    But they took the dye - if I pre-washed them in acetone, they probably of went darker... (i was rushed LOL)

    (so there not 100% screen accurate)

    2. They are rinsed and dried in this picture.

    Stupid newbie question. Is there a specific length of gap you need? For example if I am a 40" waist, do I buy the 40" one or is it more accurate to get the 34" and leave a 6" gap?

    Depends on how much it shrinks, also you have to allow for it to lay over the cod piece, few inches there....

    That's why I ordered a few sizes -

    Update:

    The cross weave is COTTEN, not Mohair.

    Wasn't too happy on how the cross weave appears on this belt, so I took it off and using the mohair from my overlarge belt, I re-braided in the cross weave.

    Now it looks screen accurate. (will post a pic tonight)

    I also found this site, http://www.ubraidit.com/ that sells stuff to braid the entire belt if you want.

    You just have to come up with the right hardware.

    But - I lucked out having the extra mohair belt, so I was able to re-fit mine.

    Re: They have girth belts in stock - shipping now.

    I bought two belts from them and got an email that said that they were out of stock until 9/14, anyone else have this happen to them or anything similar. I also ordered from another place that someone else recommended.

    Re: They have girth belts in stock - shipping now.

    After reading through this thread, I'm still puzzled as to which size belt I should order. The belts don't look terribly adjustable and I'd hate to order one and take my chances. I suppose I could purchase a few and dye them and see what comes of it. Keep the one that fits and sell the rest cheap and gives some friends here a break.

    I was also wondering if RIT makes a grey/charcoal colored dye, and if anyone has used it, and if so how did the dye-job look after it's dyed and dried? I suppose I could use black but I don't want too much black overpowering the white and gry armor. I guess I'm just picky...Anyway, can any of you shine some light on all this for me? Thanks

    Re: They have girth belts in stock - shipping now.

    I need a new girth belt also. I'm in the same boat, the more I read the more confused I get. I am skinny, I wear a size 30-31 inch waist pants. Do they make girth belts that would fit me? And where can I get one?

    Re: They have girth belts in stock - shipping now.

    When I made *my* mohair girth belt (some 5 years ago), I bought the size I wear (36") and dyed it in a hot Rit bath. After it was dyed (and still wet), I stretched it across a long board with 2 nails on each end of it (1 buckle hooked over each nail, 2 buckles per end). This prevented it from excessively shrinking as it dried (Mohair (and wool) does that). Once dry, I made up the difference that it shrunk using the leather straps.

    Re: They have girth belts in stock - shipping now.

    So it shrinks while drying rather than in doing so in the hot dye?
