Are compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs) available that produce a similar colour light to traditional incandescent light bulbs?

Compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs) cover a range of desired colours including a close approximate of the ‘warm’ light of most incandescent bulbs, around 2700 degrees Kelvin. The Kelvin temperature of a lamp refers to the colour of the light it emits, and is a comparison to natural outdoor light (for example, sunlight at noon on a clear day is about 6000 degrees Kelvin). Compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs) are available in five main colours: • ‘warm white’ (similar to the light from incandescent light bulbs) of about 2700 to 3000 degrees Kelvin • ‘white’ of about 3500 degrees Kelvin • ‘cold white’ of about 4000 degrees Kelvin • ‘neutral white’ of about 5000 degrees Kelvin • ‘daylight’ of about 6000 degrees Kelvin.
