The Color: A bold blue-purple, this is the violet shade of royalty and mystics. Something magical begins when you wind this skein.
The Name: The castle of Tintagel was a fortress where Gorlois placed his wife Igraine while he was fighting Uther (who had fallen in love with Igraine). Uther, with the help of Merlin, disguised himself as Gorlois and entered Tintagel. That night, he and Igraine conceived Arthur. Although not Arthur's birthplace, it feels like the start of the Arthurian legends happened here. This colorway is my favorite, so I've given it this honored name.
