About the Colorway (Gwenhwyfar)
A very pale buttery yellow that can work as almost a neutral.
The Story Behind the Colorway Name
In the Mists of Avalon, Morgaine and Lancelet first see Gwenhwyfar when she is a young girl, lost in the mists. Here is how she is described in the book: "She was very young and dazzlingly pretty; she seemed all white and gold, her skin pale as ivory just stained with coral, her eyes palest sky-blue, her hair long and pale and shining through the mist like living gold." Later, Gwenhwyfar marries Arthur, even though she has fallen in love with Lancelet, from the moment of this meeting, which causes much strife in the kingdom.
