Date Foraged: Feb 25, 2021
Location Foraged: NE Hassalo + NE Pacific
Dye Method: Stove Top
Recipe: If it’s of interest, I had the lichen on low heat for an hour and then let it sit for 24. Once it was strained, I added the fabric and put over low heat for an hour, then let it sit for another 24.
I was curious if it would do anything. I plucked it off branches that were blown down in the ice storm.
