here is some notes on the bottom if you are interested in a mushroom hat let me know I will enter your name into a draw to win the hat Subscribe to my youtube channel if you can please and then you can watch all the videos when I put them out I do post many in here at mycotopia tho so you wont miss anything if you dont sub much love xoxox
This fungus is a special one it does have a few uses that can seem magical
1 you can carry a coal for a long time even without blowing on it, it smoldered for 20 minutes. I got it started with a coal from the fire place and blew on it a bit and then it was good in the ashtray for 20 minutes... With lighters these days we don't think about what a need these fungi were long ago... To carry a coal and help start a new fire would be priceless... Even the logs it grows on can be great Tinder
But fire starting is not the only magic trick...
2 It can be used to make a material like felt or leather but with a mushroom not an animal... I have played with this process and I might again later but a mushroom friend gave me a purse and a hat...
I carry the purse when I hunt for mushrooms but I thought the hat would make a nice surprise for one of my subscriber friends... If you are interested just leave me a comment about the hat and I will enter your name into a draw to win it... I will let you all get a chance so I will give you all a couple weeks to comment

"Along with Piptoporus betulinus, Fomes fomentarius is one of two mushrooms that the Tyrolean Iceman was carrying around 5000 years ago. He apparently used Fomes fomentarius as tinder."
Piptoporus betulinus is harder to find this time of year I think the deer eat it all as this is the only time of year it becomes soft lol the tracks in the snow were deer tracks hoping in and out of the woods i bet looking for this fungus https://www.mushroom...t.com/piptop...
here is a video on mushrooms being made into fabric type material like leather but without well with a mushroom not an animal
