Emrys in Glastonbury
About the Yarn Base (Emrys)
A bit of this, a touch of that: with these mini-sized skeins you can mix up your own magic in any project. Turn a basic vanilla sock or a simple hat into something festive and fun with stripes! Emrys mini skeins use the same blend of superwash merino and nylon as Merlin and are perfect for coordinating with the self-striping colors of Merlin so you can have solid heels and toes for your socks. You can also mix and match the mini skeins on their own to create gradient projects or other patterns that use smaller quantities of multiple colors. No matter what spell you weave, these minis are here to add a dose of fun and a hint of magic to every project.
75% superwash merino/25% nylon

The Story Behind the Colorway Name
Glastonbury Tor holds a special place in the Arthurian legend as many believe it to be the site of Avalon. The Tor itself rises over the land and during the early Middle Ages, it was probably surrounded by marshland, making it a kind of isle. There was a monastery on the top of Glastonbury Tor and in the late twelfth century, the monks claim to have found the burial of a man and woman who were King Arthur and Guenevere. The green color of the yarn represents the gorgeous green landscape around the Tor.
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.
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.
