Emrys in Orkney
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
About the Color (Orkney)
If you stood on a deserted island gazing out at the most beautiful ocean you’ve ever seen, this would be the color of that ocean. A pure aqua blue-green, this colorway will instantly transport you to sunny shores and mystical locales.
This color coordinates with the Luf Talkyng self-striping Merlin colorway.
The Story Behind the Colorway Name
The Orkney Islands play an important role in the Arthurian stories because Orkney is ruled by King Lot, who is married to Arthur’s half-sister and whose sons include the famous Gawain and Gareth as well as the less well-known (but also important) Agravain and Gaheris.
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.
