Gawain in Lunete
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 (Lunete)
A light pink with undertones of lavender, this colorway is delicate and feminine.
The Story Behind the Colorway Name
Lunete is connected to the story of Yvain and Laudine, the Lady of the Fountain. Lunete is Laudine’s handmaiden and it is through her intervention that Yvain and Laudine decide to marry one another. When Yvain breaks a promise to Laudine, who spurns her unfaithful husband (he leaves her to return to Arthur’s court and his acts of knighthood; she’s given him a year to return but he does not return at the appointed time). After a series of circumstances, Lunete finds herself on trial and sentenced to be burnt at the stake. Yvain saves her and in return, Lunete helps him reconcile with Laudine.

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.
