I like that shade of hackle and my wife even more so. What is rit wine? Would any red wine do? Jeff

Jeff,
Rit is a fabric dye. Dont think real wine would work as well, although I know a few people who would be interested to try it.

Regards,
Scott

Oh, good thing I clarified, otherwise I'd be stuck drinking the whole thing, which then I would be stuck smoking or barbecue a good slab a meat to go with, as that's really the only way to drink red wine.
