Quelle couleur est-ce?

Back painting 28mm Normans after almost 4 years. Having started with the easy bit – the mail coat – it’s time to paint the cloth bits. However, the question “what colour should I be painting jerkins and trousers, given natural dye colours in the Dark Ages”, always bothers me..

Luckily, fellow podcast host Mike Whitaker is ever-so-slightly OCD on this subject, and posted a very helpful entry on his blog back in May on this very subject.
