    Certainly those colors were around in the "Psychedelic Sixties"!

    I remember in 1968, day-glo green, yellow, orange and pink were very popular together.

    And then you had the psychedelic brights.

    We had cooler colors, too. Remember ice blue? And purple was big. Hot pink? Tangerine?

    But maybe you just don't remember the sixties. ;-) ;-)

    I remember the "anything goes" 1960s, and if these are polyester, they probably weigh a heck of a lot. But WARM!! If I remember correctly, they wore like iron, lasted through washing after washing. I really feel that this IS poly, might be a good deal for a vacation cabin. For winter use.

    I remember the 60's I remember bright paints, BUT not materials. Maybe very late 60's or more into 70's when the hippies were in... lol:

    I used these colors in the early 70's. The fabric used was polyester/cotton.

    I was in 7th & 8th grades during 1968-69, and I remember I had lime green, hot pink, purple and bright yellow clothing. These colors were definitely "in" during the 60's in Los Angeles.
