Camelot in Ambrosius
About the Yarn Base (Camelot)
Sometimes an average yarn just won’t do – sometimes you want to dream bigger. This yarn is special; while you’ll get the reliability of merino and nylon, the touch of cashmere is like a kiss of elegance on an otherwise everyday yarn. Knit yourself a pair of socks designed for lounging by the fire or a shawl or cowl that will add a touch of luxury to any outfit.

About the Color (Ambrosius)
This colorway commands attention with its range of purples from violet to lavender, streaked throughout with bold strands of aqua blue. You’ll feel like royalty and take charge of any project with a colorway like this.
The Story Behind the Colorway Name
Ambrosius Aurelianus was a Romano-Britain warlord who fought during the time of Vortigern and the invasion of Britain by the German brothers Hengist and Horsa. Winning a successful battle during this time, Ambrosius becomes a key figure in the stories before Arthur is born. In fact, some authors claim Ambrosius is Uther’s brother and thus Arthur’s uncle (although he died before Arthur was born).

About the Yarn from Round Table Yarns
The yarns from Round Table Yarns are dyed by hand in small dye lots so each skein receives special care and attention. Colorway names have been taken from the stories of King Arthur and the knights of the Round Table, and on the inside of each label, you can read the story of the inspiration behind the name.
The yarn is ready to ship in a muslin project bag for safe delivery and will arrive in your mailbox in a cheerful purple mailing envelope. Your yarn typically ships within 24 hours, often on the same day you place your order.
