About the Colorway (Deeds of Arms: 4 stripes)
This colorway has four stripes: pumpkin orange (Bedivere), dark brown (Lionel), autumn green (Pellinore), and deepest navy (Bors). A very masculine skein, perfect to knit socks for your own knight in shining armor.
The Story Behind the Colorway Name
Deeds of Arms was the term used to define the activities of a knight, whether it be actual fighting, participating in a tournament, or going on a quest. This self-striping colorway has four colors: orange (Bedivere), dark brown (Lionel), green (Pellinore), and navy (Bors). With all the colors in this self-striping colorway being named after various knights, the "Deeds of Arms" name felt appropriate for this new colorway.

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.
