“He’s a dyed-in-the-wool believer. You’ll never change his mind.” 「彼は根っからの信者だ。どんなに説得しても絶対に考え方を変えないでしょう。」


You might hear someone described as “dyed in the wool” if they have very strong and unshakeable belief in a certain idea. This phrase comes from yarn. We can dye yarn in different colors, so all our sweaters aren’t just white. If you dye the wool before spinning it into yarn, you can color it more thoroughly.
