Plant Dyed Yarn: Jack O' Lantern Mushrooms





Remember those Jack O' Lantern mushrooms we foraged a few weeks back?  I finally got around to dyeing with them, and while I was hoping for a beautiful violet, the results were less than spectacular.    The boys described it more as vomit than violet.  No problem though, the wild sunflowers are blooming everywhere right now and I'll over dye it a glorious yellow.  

Dye notes:
Cestari Yarn in Bare
Alum Mordant
Dye was rich golden copper color
Removed mushrooms before adding fiber
Soaked yarn overnight in dye to exhaust - never did
