The Story Behind the Colorway Name

Son of Arthur's niece, Caradoc was born out of an adulterous affair. He imprisons his mother in a tower to keep her from her lover, who is a sorcerer. But the sorcerer rescues her, and the two curse Caradoc by affixing a deadly snake to him to slowly drain his strength over two years. He is saved by a maiden, Guigner, and her brother; Caradoc had recused the maiden in a previous situation. They remove the snake through a rather strange setup: Guigner sits in a vat of milk and Caradoc in vinegar. When the snake lets go of Caradoc to attach to Guigner, her brother cuts off the snake's head.

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.
