Honor in Orkney
About the Yarn Base (Honor)
Honor is a fluffy blend of mohair and silk. You can work with it by itself or carry it with another yarn to add some texture to your project.
About the Color (Orkney)
If you stood on a deserted island gazing out at the most beautiful ocean you’ve ever seen, this would be the color of that ocean. A pure aqua blue-green, this colorway will instantly transport you to sunny shores and mystical locales.
The Story Behind the Colorway Name
The Orkney Islands play an important role in the Arthurian stories because Orkney is ruled by King Lot, who is married to Arthur’s half-sister and whose sons include the famous Gawain and Gareth as well as the less well-known (but also important) Agravain and Gaheris.

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.
