About the Colorway (Sir Cadogan's Pony: 4 stripes)
Grey is anything but boring in this grey-dient colorway.
The Story Behind the Colorway Name
Sir Cadogan is a knight of the Round Table – at least he is in the Harry Potter universe (his tale didn’t make it into the Muggle versions). Most famous for his fight against the Wyvern of Wye, Cadogan was a foolhardy knight, and this battle highlighted his temperament. After the wyvern at his horse, Cadogan found a fat pony grazing nearby and charged back toward the beast, holding only a broken wand. And that broken wand was his saving grace as it misfired and hit the wyvern, killing it. Cadogan (wearing silver-grey armor) and his grey pony are immortalized at Hogwart’s Castle in a seventh-floor portrait.

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.
