Camelot in Gorlois
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.

The Story Behind the Colorway Name
Gorlois is the first husband of Igraine, who becomes Arthur's mother. She is married off to Gorlois, who is much older, at a young age, and then two have a daughter, Morgaine. Overall, he indulges Igraine, yet at the same time, he is extremely jealous and his attitude toward her turns to rage and domestic abuse when he thinks something is going on between Igraine and Uther. (Something does happen later, but not at the time when Gorlois' jealousy first surfaces.) At first a supporter of Uther as High King, Gorlois breaks from Uther due to his jealousy and tries to keep Igraine from Uther. But Gorlois dies in battle and Uther and Igraine unite, producing Arthur, the future High King.
