Gawain in Ganieda
About the Yarn Base (Gawain)
Gawain is a yarn that loves texture – its 3-ply structure and tight twist is ideal for stitch patterns involving cables, twists, and purls. It’s round, bouncy, and fun – but still has a soft side with its fine merino content. Let your needles put a twist on your next project with Gawain as their champion.

The Story Behind the Colorway Name
Ganieda is a fairly obscure Arthurian character. According to Geoffrey of Monmouth, Ganieda was Merlin's sister, and she built a house in the woods where Merlin was able to observe the sky and make predictions. One day, Taliesin (a famous bard) joined them and when Ganieda drank water from a healing spring, she also received the gift of prophecy. The aqua color represents the magical spring from which she drank.

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.
