Winter dye party pt. 7

More yellow! I love yellow :)

The bright lemon yellow in the center was achieved after only 15 minutes in the dyebath!
The orangey-yellow on the right was after 45 min/1 hour in dyebath.
The other colors to the left are previous dyes for comparison.
So, this fungus was Inonotus hispidus, another polypore that forms "shelfs" on wood.

ooh. I love yellow too! Are you familiar with the poem about yellow by Emily Dickinson?:

Nature rarer uses yellow
Than another hue;
Saves she all of that for sunsets,--
Prodigal of blue,

Spending scarlet like a woman,
Yellow she affords
Only scantly and selectly,
Like a lover's words.
