Cornwall in Glastonbury
About the Yarn Base (Cornwall)
Sometimes you want a yarn that will do more – a yarn that can withstand epic battles with patterns, frogging, and cables. Cornwall is the yarn on which dream projects are built – it has amazing stitch definition, and the Bluefaced Leicester wool brings a durability Merino just can’t provide. The superwash treatment makes this a great yarn for gift knitting, too, because even though it’s strong, it’s soft enough for most projects and easy care. (Note: Hand-dyed yarn should always be hand washed in cold water for best results.)

About the Color (Glastonbury)
The deep green elements of this yarn are reminiscent of a magical isle, a place where history is made and magic runs rampant. Immerse yourself in its depths, ranging from clover to evergreen and many shades in between.
The Story Behind the Colorway Name
Glastonbury Tor holds a special place in the Arthurian legend as many believe it to be the site of Avalon. The Tor itself rises over the land and during the early Middle Ages, it was probably surrounded by marshland, making it a kind of isle. There was a monastery on the top of Glastonbury Tor and in the late twelfth century, the monks claim to have found the burial of a man and woman who were King Arthur and Guenevere. The green color of the yarn represents the gorgeous green landscape around the Tor.

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 (no story on Quest colors).
Shipping is free within the United States and free for international orders over $100. 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.
