The most important and essential step when dyeing with nature is mordanting.

Four types of mordanting techniques are shown for protein and cellulose fibers, including Alum, Aluminum Acetate and "dunging," Tannins, and even Soy Milk.

You'll receive a download of the entire video series and access to a private blog page with all videos and instructions. Take it at your own speed. The video quality isn't great :-) but the information is good, thorough, and extremely organized.
