Chivalry in Meliador
About the Yarn Base (Chivalry)
A combination of lustrous BFL (Bluefaced Leicester) and an oversized skein (150 grams) makes this yarn a perfect selection for your next fingering weight garment. Or maybe you want to create a larger shawl with fewer ends to weave in. Or socks or fingerless mitts that will hold up to wear. (Click here to learn more about BFL.)

The Story Behind the Colorway Name
In a tangential tale, a series of tournaments is organized with the victor winning the hand of Hermondine of Scotland. Meliador, from Cornwall, emerges early as the clear victor. The final tournament takes place at Camelot, and Agravain, Arthur's nephew, woos Hermondine's cousin, Lady Floree, who had organized the tournament.

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 or Adventure 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.
