Dying Linen?

Can you dye linen yarn? Is it possible? I have Googled with little solid evidence.

I have some re-claimed linen yarn that I fell in love with. While it was still in the sweater, I thought it was a lovely color. Once I unwound it, it took on the apperance of Peto Bismol. I would prefer to dye it darker, either a burgandy red or blue.

I have emailed Mechers (I think?) to let them know of my delima.

Any idease out there?
