Colors in Elizabethan England

So I was checking out the fabulous group on Facebook called 'Elizabethan Costume' if anyone here loves this time period like me? Do check out this group, I have learnt so much during my time with them!!!  Anyway, click here and will lead you to an extensive look on the colors given to QEI from the people in her Court and Peerage. Even a description of the colors and when it was first showed up, like the term "pink"or Purple.  I have a class I give on how to get Fabrics that are representative of the Renaissance and I always add things about the colors, types of fabrics and the like.  So this has been very exciting for me!

Hello there :-)
I'm really interested in reading the article on colour of QE1's clothing at ingentaconnect. I can't get into the PDF (I even Registered). The comments for the Tudor site that you directly link to has it's comments closed. I don't suppose you know of a special trick? Something I'm missing?
I'm a 16thc/early 17thc embroiderer

Best Wishes
