I got my 38Ē mohair girth belt from an online tack shop called the Chubby Pony. It was used so it was only $6 plus shipping it had a few dirt stains but otherwise it is in great shape.
I have finally got the courage to plunge into the dye bath and it is on the stove cooking now. Iím using the liquid dye formula of Ĺ cup Rit Dark Brown & ľ cup Rit Wine. Right now it looks real dark, but hopefully it will lighten up once I start rinsing it. I have the stretching board already to go.
I got my fingers crossed.
