Camelot in Caught in a trap
About the Yarn Base (Camelot)
Sometimes an average yarn just won’t do – sometimes you want to dream bigger. This yarn is special; while you’ll get the reliability of merino and nylon, the touch of cashmere is like a kiss of elegance on an otherwise everyday yarn. Knit yourself a pair of socks designed for lounging by the fire or a shawl or cowl that will add a touch of luxury to any outfit.

The Story Behind the Colorway Name
Yvain has broken a vow to his wife, Laudine, who will not forgive him. After many years of adventures, he tires of all the traveling and fighting and longs for a reunion with his estranged wife. He goes to the fountain beside his wife’s castle and, through enchantment, is able to bring about a storm that rocks the castle. Lunete, Laudine’s maiden and secretly on Yvain’s side, tells her they must have a knight who will defend the fountain and castle. Laudine agrees, if only a willing knight can be found. Lunete reminds her of the famed Knight of the Lion, who surely would be willing to defend the fountain if only he weren’t so upset about being in his lady’s disgrace.
Of course, Laudine does not realize the Knight of the Lion is Yvain and she the lady in question. So she says that if they are able to get this knight to the castle, she will do everything in her power to restore him with his lady. The trap set, Lunete rides out to find Yvain at the fountain and tell him of the plan. When they return, Laudine angrily cries out that they have caught her in a trap, forcing her to forgive and love a man who does not love or prize her. She claims that were it not for the promise she has made, she would never reconcile with Yvain. Yvain pleads with her, claiming he does truly love her. Laudine forgives him and the two are filled with joy once again.

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.
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.
