Lepista nuda, the Wood Blewit, grows in leaf litter in deciduous and mixed woodland and under hedgerows during autumn and winter, often fruiting well into December during mild weather.
Wood Blewits are bluish... at least when they are young. The caps, gills and stems are actually more of a violet colour, but the cap surface soon loses its blue or violet coloration and turns ochre or tan from the centre; however, the gills and stem invariably retain some of their their violaceous colouring even when fully mature.
Perhaps surprisingly, Wood Blewits can be used to dye fabrics or paper a grass green colour rather than lilak, purple or blue. To make a green dye the fungi are chopped up and then boiled in water in an iron cooking pot.
