Guenevere in My beauty will not hold
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 (My beauty will not hold)
Like the petals of a peony, this yarn is a soft, delicate pink: pure femininity and grace.
The Story Behind the Colorway Name
In "The Wedding of Sir Gawain and Dame Ragnelle," to save Arthur's life, Gawain has agreed to marry a woman who is the most foul, ugly woman anyone has ever seen. But on their wedding night, Gawain finds his new wife is actually a beautiful woman. She tells him she has been enchanted and her "beauty will not hold"; she can be beautiful by night but ugly by day or vice versa. She gives Gawain the choice for when her beauty will show: either in public by day where everyone else can see (but then at night when they're alone, in bed, she'll be hideous) or at night in private (so Gawain can experience her beauty in their private time but everyone will think he's married to a hag). Which will he choose?

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.
