Camelot in Pellinore
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.
80% superwash merino/10% cashmere/10% nylon

About the Color (Pellinore)
A snake slithering through the grass. A large, leafy jungle plant. The scales of a crocodile just beneath the surface of the water. This yarn is a deep, rich green reminiscent of nature’s creations: emerald with evergreen and just a hint of golden undertones.
The Story Behind the Colorway Name
In the stories, Pellinore was most well-known for seeking the Questing Beast, a strange creature made up of parts of different creatures (snake, leopard, lion, and hart). Although it led Pellinore on many quests, the Questing part of its name actually comes from the sound its stomach made, which resembled the sound of forty hounds baying (or questing). Pellinore fathered several children, including Perceval, and killed King Lot (Gawain's father), which led Gawain to kill Pellinore.
