Can you give me instructions on Dying Crochet Thread?

I am very interested in dying my own crochet thread due to the lack of colors available in our area. Can you give me the instructions on how this process is done? Thank you so very much for your time. My email address is swetypi57@yahoo.com.

Crohet thread is usually cotton but not always, for cotton you need a "reactive" dye, dylon available in Wilkinsons do a reactive dye or you can buy online. Wool and Nylon dye with "acid dyes", kemtex of similar will do, polyester hardly ever dyes with anything. Hope this helps.

I found this link the first time I tried to dye thread. It has loads of pictures and just as many instructions to make it fool-proof!
