Igraine

The Color: This yarn is a blue worth searching for, a color worthy of an epic battle. It’s a blend of many shades from sky to denim, and it’s so much more than just a pretty color. There’s depth and richness to this skein, whose tonal quality will bring a unique twist to any project.

The Name: Igraine was married to Gorlois, who was one of King Uther's men. When Uther met Igraine, he fell in love with her; Gorlois hid Igraine in the fortress of Tintagel and proceeded to fight Uther. One night, Uther disguised himself as Gorlois (through Merlin's magic) and spent the night with Igraine--this resulted in the conception of Arthur. Igraine finds out that Gorlois had been killed shortly before the disguised Uther was with her. Uther marries Igraine, but Arthur is taken away to be raised by another family and does not know the history of his parentage.
