About the Colorway (Erec and Enide: 2 stripes)
A rich evergreen combines with a deep crimson-pink to make this colorway, which is reminiscent of a vintage Christmas and inspired by the contrast between love and duty.
The Story Behind the Colorway Name
Erec and Enide are characters in Chretien de Troyes' story, in which they are married. Erec is devoted to his wife and thus stops going out on knightly adventures. Enide is upset by this and Erec catches her crying about it. Upset, he takes her on a journey in which he seeks adventures but orders her not to speak no matter what happens on their travels. She breaks her promise multiple times to warn Erec of danger. They do eventually reconcile and the story is an interesting look at how knightly adventures and marriage work (or don't work) together.

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.
