Merlin is here for you; with its blend that includes 25% nylon, it’s sure to stand the test of time, while the merino ensures the projects you make will be more than next-to-skin soft. The self-striping dye pattern is like a pop of magic: it takes basic knitting patterns and turns them into something spectacular.

About the Colorway (Pavilion: 4 stripes)
Like a bold and festive party tent, this colorway combines the individual semi-solids of Glastonbury (rich emerald green), Lady of the Lake (light lake-blue), Nimue (warm medium purple), and Knight (dark grey).
The Story Behind the Colorway Name
Pavilions, or large open tents, seem to pop up quite frequently in Arthurian literature, especially in encounters between knights and ladies. Once such story involves Nimue (who for a time held the Lady of the Lake title) and several of the knights. (Three of the colors used in this yarn are the same colors as Nimue, Lady of the Lake, and Knight.)

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.
