>how can i dye linen with indigo?

Simone,

Some plants are easier to dye with than others...
The process of indigo dyeing using the whole plant is a nasty, smelly 
operation which involves fermentation and vats of goo and such.  You would be 
better off purchasing some cake or powder or liquid indigo already extracted.  
Look through a book or magazine on natural dyeing to uncover some sources of 
natural dyes.
