I've done some simple stuff. Used onion skins/turmeric/mimosa to get yellow, madder/cochineal for red, and a friend has done lichens that resulted in pinks. Most of the mordants I've used have been plain alum, which isn't necessarily toxic, but can smell funny (though that's arguably the wool). My friend has used an ammonia base for her lichen, which definitely ought to be done outside.
