About the Yarn Base (Legend)

Once upon a time, three fibers came together to create a yarn worthy of story and song. This Legend base combines the softness of merino, the warmth halo of yak, and the strong support of nylon. Touch it once and you won’t want to let it go – it’s buttery soft yet the tighter twist and nylon element will help it hold up to wear. The undyed base of this yarn is a darker color, so it adds a depth to any colorway it meets.

About the Color (Morold)

Bold and confident with hints of poison and darkness, this colorway is a rich blackberry purple. The plum-like color leans toward the red side of purple, with dark black undertones to add depth and mystery.

The Story Behind the Colorway Name

Morold, the champion of the Irish, comes to Cornwall to claim the latest tribute. Tristan says he will fight a duel with Morold: if Tristan wins, no tribute will be paid; if Morold wins, he can take the tribute. The two men travel in small boats across the water to an island. When Tristan lands, he sets his boat free so only one boat remains—he knows that after the fight only one boat will be needed. Morold is a fierce fighter, and at first it is all Tristan can do to defend himself against the blows. Finally, Tristan overextends his shield and Morold is able to plunge his sword through Tristan’s thigh.

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

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.
