Attended a lovely workshop presented by :
This is Alissa's sample of mushroom dyes she travels with - along with her mushroom guy.
We folded a silk scarf, shibori style, as well - I choose the green'd pot (mordant with Iron) of Dyer's Polypore - my silk was a bit white for my taste but we didn't have much time to wrap so I was just trying it out. I know I can get better results later when I take my time.
These were Hapilopilus nidulans (top yarn) and Rock Tripe - lichen (bottom)
Starting on left = Hapilopilus Nidulans (again with different lighting than above photo) , Hydnellum Spongiosipes (with Alum) , Phellondon Niger (with Alum), last on right is Phellondon Niger (with Iron).
This is the roving I brought to then dye in the large pot of (mordant with Alum) of Dyer's Polypore. Its a mix of dark and light Blue Faced Leicester which I thought would look great with the yellow - and I was right. I spun up later at home.
Such a wonderful rainbow from mushrooms!
