    Yes, this is what I used on the felt. I used a half strength black dye as I wanted a mid grey. It came out a mid grey with lots of nice blue tones in it. As the water has to be hot (just below the boil) the felt will continue to felt up on you becoming denser and smaller. It should be a raw felt not an existing hat with the leather sweat installed. The hot water will destroy the leather sweat.
