Dyeing with Fungi

I discovered that fungi produce wonderful dyes around 1990.Since then I have been using dyed fibres in my weavings.
The dye colours include purples,reds,oranges,yellows and all the shades in between.
Most of the dye fungi can be found In Scotland but sadly we have very limited supplies.
