About the Colorway (Ganieda)

The Story Behind the Colorway Name
Ganieda is a fairly obscure Arthurian character. According to Geoffrey of Monmouth, Ganieda was Merlin's sister, and she built a house in the woods where Merlin was able to observe the sky and make predictions. One day, Taliesin (a famous bard) joined them and when Ganieda drank water from a healing spring, she also received the gift of prophecy. The aqua color represents the magical spring from which she drank.

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.
