I bought it a couple of days ago, when I saw it had gone on sale. I didn't think it was worth the original price, although it DOES have a lot of detail in it.
It dyes ok, but not spectacularly. Any dye you put on it will end up looking like a slightly muted/slightly grayer version of the dye you used. The biggest issue is that the yellowish fringe trim does not dye at all, which means any color you dye the rest of it has to go with the yellowish trim, or it doesn't look good.
