Re: [BKARTS] BOOK_ARTS-L Digest - 1 Jul 2003 to 2 Jul 2003 (#2003-181) Coloured linen thread



Cass,

I have been quite happy with putting length of linen thread in a jar of
aniline dye - such as available from J Hewit's - when necessary.   If the
thread is waxed then it is probably easier to leave the thread in a
solvent to remove most of the wax first to allow dye penetration.   If
you can get plain linen thread then you have no problem.
