Winter Dye Party pt. 4

I got a yellow!

I used a mix of boletus (which have pores/tubes to release spores instead of gills).
I used Boletus mirabilis and Boletus zelleri with 1 scoop alum and 2 scoops cream of tartar.

These are so beautiful! I just learned to crochet tonight, so I have increased appreciation for beautiful yarn. Perhaps it is time I began experimenting with natural dyes...
