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.

About the Color (Petitcrieu)

A rich, indigo purple color with strong blue undertones. This bold blue-purple is sure to cheer you up and bring style to any project! This tonal colorway shifts from lights to darks along the same blue-violet base.

The Story Behind the Colorway Name

Tristan and Isolde’s love affair has almost been discovered, so Tristan leaves so they can keep their secret. He ends up in Duke Gilan’s court but spends much of his time moping. Gilan, however, has a cure for that: his little dog Petitcreiu. Gilan sends for the dog, which is placed on top of a large purple cloth. The dog, a gift from Avalon, is under an enchantment and wears a gold chain with a bell attached to it. When the bell sounds, it immediately cheers everyone who hears it. Tristan is so gladdened by the dog, he is determined to possess it so he can send it as a gift to Isolde. He defeats a giant and receives the dog as a gift.

Tristan sends the dog off to Isolde with a note. In her response, Isolde begs Tristan to return to court. As for the dog, Isolde doesn’t like having her love pangs banished by the sound of the bell, so she breaks the bell off the collar, renewing her feelings of sorrow, which she seems to take pleasure in feeling. The sorrow doesn’t last long as Tristan soon returns to court, and the two lovers renew their affair.
