Mushroom Dyers Trading Post

The Mushroom Dyer’s Trading Post is a place for foragers and dyers to meet and share. It is hosted on Facebook.

The Trading Post is limited to trading only, however, any items may be offered in trade. Some trades have included dried mushrooms for wool, mushrooms for home canned goods, handspun yarn for specific mushrooms, and mineral pigments for dyes. Get creative! Remember that people who collect for dyers may not want anything dye or fiber related. Offer a variety of options – food, handmade goods or other items.

It is my hope that by sharing the joys of mushroom dyeing in this format, general awareness and appreciation of mycology will increase on the whole. Mushroom dyeing is still young, the chemistry, taxonomy and procedures are all in complete flux. By sharing our fungi and dye experiences, we can expand environmental and mycological awareness, and add beautiful regional colors to our fiber, fabric, and community.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions.
