Gawain in Gwynedd
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.

About the Color (Gwynedd)
A deep rose pink, this color is tinted like the lips of a queen or the horizon at sunset. It will bring warmth and femininity to any project with its universally flattering deep red-pink color.
The Story Behind the Colorway Name
Gwynedd (pronounced like Gwyneth—the "dd” in Welsh is pronounced like a “th”) is part of the country of Wales and is mentioned several times in Arthurian stories. For example, one of the twelve battles of Arthur (as described by Nennius) takes place on the Welsh border to protect Arthur’s realm from those beyond this border. Even so, the kingdom never lost its identity. Because this is one of my favorite colors, I wanted to give it a name of honor and pride.

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.
