The Story Behind the Colorway Name
In a Middle Scots poem, Gawain is shown to be the most perfectly courteous knight through two events. Arthur and some of his knights are traveling and stop outside a city. Kay goes into the city to get some supplies but comes back emptyhanded because of his rudeness toward the villagers. Gawain goes into the city and smooths things over and gets the supplies. They then go to the castle of Golagros, who has refused to pledge fealty to Arthur. After the other envoys have been unsuccessful at getting Golagros to accept Arthur, Gawain goes in to fight Golagros. Although Gawain would clearly win, he pretends to be defeated so Golagros can save face in front of his men. As a result, Golagros pledges his support to Arthur.

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.

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.
