“Dyed-in-the-wool: This phrase has come to mean genuine, true friend, one who sticks with you in good or bad times. If wool yarn is dyed before it is woven into cloth, the dye will penetrate completely, and the color will last, whereas if the cloth is woven before it is dyed, it will only color the surface and, as the cloth becomes worn, the color will disappear.”
