The shingled hedgehog mushroom (Sarcodon imbricatus) and related species contain blue-green pigments, which are used for dyeing wool in Norway.[2] The fruiting body of hydnellum peckii can be used to produce a beige colour when no mordant is used, and shades of blue or green depending on the mordant added.[3] P. schweinitzii produces green, yellow, gold, or brown colours, depending on the material dyed and the mordant used.[4]
