Merlin in Pledge Me Your Word

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 (Pledge Me Your Word: 4 stripes)
This colorway likes to mix it up a little bit, with thicker stripes of cantaloupe orange and honeydew green with thinner stripes of electric blue in between. It’s like a citrus disco for your knitting!
The Story Behind the Colorway Name
Honor is one of the most important aspects of being a knight. To lose one’s honor is one of the worst things to happen to a knight. Honor can be lost in several ways, but not keeping one’s word or honoring an oath that has been made is a grave offense. A knight truly means it if he agrees to pledge his word about something, and he will do his best to fulfill that promise. In several stories, someone has asked a knight to “Pledge me your word” and trying to keep that oath often leads a knight into an adventure (and some difficulty).

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.
