About the Color (Dindrane)
At first glance Dindrane is a simple lavender, a lovely and feminine light purple color fit for any maiden. Upon further examination, however, you’ll see this colorway carries more depth than you may have realized; its tonal quality ranges from the palest of lilacs to a medium violet, worthy of any project where an ordinary color just won’t do.
The Story Behind the Colorway Name
Dindrane is Perceval's sister and shows up in stories about the holy grail. She helps Perceval and a couple of the other grail seekers, giving them much-needed information, especially about the Ship of Solomon, which Perceval, Galahad, and Bors board to achieve the grail quest. They come to a castle where the lady has leprosy, which can only by cured by the blood of a maiden. Dindrane sacrifices her blood and ultimately her life for this lady. Dindrane's body is placed on a boat and left to drift; the boat ends up in Sarras (a holy city), where Perceval and Bors bury her.

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 U.S. 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.
