      A note on Mordants: In the natural dyeing process you will often hear people speak about "mordants". A mordant is a plant or metal based fixative that is used to fix the dye to the fibers & extend the colour/wash-fastness of natural dyes. I think a good start for you would be to buy J.N Liles' book, The Art and Craft of Natural Dyeing: Traditional Recipes for Modern Use, ISBN , which gives detailed, updated recipes for many different natural dyes and mordants, on different fibers including silk. There is no point in trying to recreate all of the years of work.
