About the Colorway (Grete Chere: 2 stripes)
Need a pick-me-up? This whimsical striping yarn is sure to do the trick! It alternates between a poppy orangey-red and a bold, electric turquoise. Just the thing to brighten a gloomy day and cheer up any mood!
The Story Behind the Colorway Name
Grete chere (or great cheer) is what is given multiple times throughout the tales when something wonderful happens. To be honest, when I first put these colorways together, I wasn't sure how well they would work, so when I saw the finished yarn, I gave great cheer at the results!

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.
