About the Colorway (Tarabil: 2 stripes)

This color is two stripes of pure magic: deep, richest black pairs with the bold blue-purple of the Tintagel colorway for a winning combination. 

The Story Behind the Colorway Name

When Uther falls in love with Igraine, she is already married to Duke Gorlois. To protect his wife from the king, Gorlois puts her in the castle at Tintagel and he goes to the castle Tarabil. Uther lays siege to Tarabil, but one night (with the help of Merlin), Uther goes to Igraine at Tintagel, disguised as her husband. That night, they conceive Arthur and Gorlois is killed at the battle at Tarabil.

About the Yarn from Round Table Yarns
