Guenevere in Damsel
About the Yarn Base (Guenevere)
Guenevere is a yarn that begs to be made into something lacy and lightweight. The 2-ply structure plays nicely with yarn-overs and eyelets, creating a fabric that wants to remain more open and airy. The tonal quality of the color adds depth and dimension to your projects; this yarn has a few secrets, but it’s willing to share them with you.

About the Color (Damsel)
She demands attention and she won’t be left in distress; this bold yellow hue is sure to brighten any day and call attention to any project.
The Story Behind the Colorway Name
Damsels (especially those in distress) occur quite frequently in the Arthurian stories. Although not all of them were blonde, the damsel with long blonde hair does seem to be the image that most often comes to mind.

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 (no story on Quest colors).
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.
