Here are further details of the fungi I used recently and the colours I achieved from each.
Note: A = no mordant, B = 10% alum mordant, 1 = no modifier, 2 = washing soda modifier, 3 = iron modifier. The order of samples for each fungus is: 1A 1B, 2A 2B, 3A 3B
The extra, usually larger, skeins are from the exhaust dyebaths and are alum-mordanted.
These colours come from a dyebath of a mixture of Cortinarius croceus and other orange- and yellow-gilled species of Cortinarius.
This shows, on the left, colours from Hydnellum aurantiacum and on the right, colours from Tapinella atrotomentosa.
These colours are from Phaeolus schweinitzii. The green shades from the exhaust dyebath were modified using iron.
These colours are from Cortinarius sanguineus
These colours are from Pisolithus tinctorius
