About the Color (Bors)
This rich navy blue runs the gamut from twilight to darkest night. Navy blue is a color that won’t let you down and is the perfect companion for almost any project, just the right blend of mystery and familiarity.
The Story Behind the Colorway Name
Bors was Lancelot's cousin and one of only three knights to succeed in the Grail quest (alongside Perceval and Galahad). After returning from that quest, Bors stood by Lancelot's side during the time of Lancelot's affair with Guenevere and all of the fallout from that situation. As a solid, dependable knight, Bor's name fits with this solid, dependable color.

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 (no story on Quest or Adventure colors).
Shipping is free within the United States and free for international orders over $100. 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.
