Using mushroom for dye
Mushroom dyeing is relatively new in natural dyeing history. The magic of walking in the forest and gathering mushroom to eat and to dye is an art of living.
This mushroom grows at the base of conifer trees and has a velvety, top. You can get both mustard yellow to olive green color.
This beautiful coral mushroom can only dye when it is fresh and it can be lilac to blue grey.
