I did some research on Natural dyes and these are what I came up with :

Orange = Yellow Onion skins and Chili powder

Pale green = Spinach Leaves

Red = Cranberries, Fresh Beetroot, raspberries, strawberries

Brown - Dill seeds, coffee, tea

Olive green=Boletopsis grisea mushroom , chamomile

Blue = Red Cabbage leaves ,Blueberries

Rich Blue = Woad leaves

Yellow = Orange/lemon peels, carrot tops, celery seed, ground cumin and ground turmeric, fresh green comfrey plant

Copper = Red Onion skins, henna

Greeny Gray = Whole Nettle plants

Pink =- Sorrel Roots

Purple = eggplant skins
