Last December I took a class on how to extract color to dye fiber from mushrooms – it was incredible! The colors of this little knitted mountain man above were entirely procured from fungi.
If you come across the opportunity to take a class with Alissa Allen, GO FOR IT. She is a wonderful teacher, and is so so sweet. Unfortunately, our terrible drought situation hasn't encouraged fungi to sprout. Of course, my concerns about the drought don't have anything to do with mushroom dyeing.
I've updated my blog layout again; what do you think?
I also opened an Instagram account, and it's only filled with photos of Moses! Isn't he adorable?
