2  FIBER ARTS / Dyeing: Discussion and Questions / Re: Dyeing Linen Coat? on: June 07, 2017 08:07:50 AM
I know this is an older thread, but I'll take a stab at this.
Because linen and cotton are both plant based fibres, you will have to remove the lining if you do not want it dyed also.  The embroidery will also get dyed, but would be an interesting texture once it's done.  You will need to use Fiber Reactive Dyes. These are meant to dye plant fibres.  There are other things you'll need too, urea, soda ash... Synthropol.  These all make for a nice even dye job. 

Hopefully this is still helpful to you!
