Emrys in Petitcrieu
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
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.
