About the Color (Knight)
There’s two sides to every story, and with a knight you never quite know what you’re going to get: white or black? Good or evil? Light or dark? This colorway combines the best elements of both sides, with its rich charcoal color that contains elements of both lighter silver grey and darkest black.
The Story Behind the Colorway Name
The knights surrounding Arthur are the focus of most of the stories within the Arthurian legends. This colorway name is associated both with the color of armor worn by the knights as well as a play on "night" (darkness).

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).
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.
