Avert your precious eyes

This photo has been taken under professional conditions, using several dozen light filters and shades. Do not look directly at the wool in this photograph. It may only be viewed through half-closed eyes in a sideways glance. Failure to follow these instructions may result in the complete and total annihilation of your retinas.

It's the filtering (and the non-natural light) that makes it look orange, but believe me when I tell you this wool shines with the pinkness of a million flamingos. If I turned off the lights, it would glow. It is purest pinkest 100% acrylic, which is basically the polar opposite of an actual sheep fleece. This stuff has never even heard the world "natural". It has apparently been knocking around in a box at work for some years following some long-forgotten promotion or other.
Pink acrylic, lo I kneel and accept your challenge.
