Here in the barony of Bryn Gwlad, some ladies did some dye tests using period
materials and herbs.  They came up with a number of lime greens, yellows,
oranges and strangely enough a lot of pink shades.  Everything from HOT HOT
pink to pale baby-pink.  Pink was much, much easier to achieve than red.
