  2. The continuing adventures of the Fluff Club, Episode 41

    (In which the names of the Fluff Boys are pseudonyms in hopes of the widest appeal for the readers; everything else is factual)

    "Just remember, when you're over the hill, you begin to pick up speed." -Charles M. Schultz

    Moorhen nowadays shuts at the weekend, unless by prior arrangement, thus the gates were open for the Fluff Club members, as indeed they were in episodes 2, 15, 18, and 30. Considering we're in mid-January, we had enjoyed a mild week but there ...

    I'll not get curried away with this as I believe the range of colours available to me are limited. But, the couple of results I've achieved so far have been better than good.

    The deepest yellow obtainable outside of a very strong dye bath and a brown olive to compliment the former are two most acceptable colours for any traditionalist and both by way of a combination of spices.
    The process is a tad fussy, at least the way I've gone about it anyway, though I hope there's another ...
