How do I repair a bleached out deer cape? We have three mounted deer that are bleached out on one side from the sun . Can the hair be dyed? What is the best option? One of the deer mounts is very sentimental.

Is that the only option? It's so expensive. It's good to know that, at least, that is an option though. Thank you

The hair that is touched by the Sun ,, is toast and brittle, hair dye will not make it look like a deer, you would have to dye the whole mount, and it would look one solid color. New capes as Tim suggested is the best way.

And no, I do not own a Tshirt that has a wolf or unicorn on it.
There is no such thing as gun control, only people control.
Stop Rot,,use it or lose it.
Rest well our friend, you are missed.
