About the Yarn Base (Legend)

Once upon a time, three fibers came together to create a yarn worthy of story and song. This Legend base combines the softness of merino, the warmth halo of yak, and the strong support of nylon. Touch it once and you won’t want to let it go – it’s buttery soft yet the tighter twist and nylon element will help it hold up to wear. The undyed base of this yarn is a darker color, so it adds a depth to any colorway it meets.

About the Color (Beaumains)

Like gazing into a mystical pool or the eyes of a young man determined to prove himself, there’s something magical in this bold turquoise colorway. Liven up any project and bring light to the darkest of days with this enchanting blue yarn.

The Story Behind the Colorway Name

Gareth is the youngest brother of Sir Gawain. When Gareth is old enough to come to King Arthur’s court, he comes in disguise because he wants to prove his own worth instead of being known as Gawain’s little brother. So he starts off as a kitchen boy and is treated poorly by Sir Kay, the seneschal. Because Gareth is really the son of a lord and not a kitchen boy, his hands are smooth instead of roughened by work, so Kay gives him the nickname, Beaumains (“beautiful hands”). Gareth is given a quest and although he is derided as a kitchen boy along the way, he does prove his worth and become a knight.

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).

Shipping

Shipping is free within the United States and free for international orders over $100. 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.
