Dying Soft Tanned Hides

I did some Koolaid dying of patches of fur I wanted to make zonker strips from. The colouration worked great but the soft leather was turned brittle rendering the fur useless for cutting into strips and making me glad that I had only tried dying test patches rather than the whole skin. Any suggestions? Has anyone else tried this? I know rabbit strips from the shop are relatively inexpensive but I have a couple of other hides that could provide excellent strips.
Thanks!
